  2. In separate bowl, add 2 cups boiling water to 2 packages orange JELL-O. Whisk until completely dissolved.
  3. Add 1 cup ice and 1/3 cup cold water. Stir until ice melts.
  4. Pour into one of the pans; refrigerate.
  5. Repeat with lemon JELL-O.

  9. Stir in 1 cup boiling water.
  10. Add sweetened condensed milk and orange extract; mix well and let cool completely, stirring often.
  11. Coat 6-cup gelatin mold with cooking spray.
  12. Cut JELL-O into squares.
  13. Alternate colors and layer inside mold.
  14. Add a few worm-shaped chewy fruit snacks as desired.
  15. Carefully pour milk mixture over JELL-O in mold.
  16. Cover: refrigerate overnight.
  17. Before serving, let JELL-O mold sit at room temperature for a few minutes.
