Jellied Worms




  1. Place sugar, juice and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stir over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Sprinkle in gelatine and cook and stir until the gelatine is completely dissolved.

  4. Pour mixture into a bread pan coated with vegetable oil spray. Let stand at room temperature until very firm, about 2 hours.
  5. Turn the pan over and remove the jelly. (If jelly sticks, set the bottom of the pan in hot water for a few minutes.)
  6. Place on a work surface sprinkled with confectioners' sugar.
  7. With a sharp knife or a small cookie cutter, cut the jelly into worm shapes.
  8. Place on a platter lined with wax paper.
