Strawberry gummy worms

On my last morning in Iowa, my mom and I decided to make gummy worms. An extremely quick and easy recipe. I wasn’t particularly fond of them, but my god-daughters loved them. I thought they tasted much like Knox blocks. It’s a recipe I will keep around because of the versatility of shapes that can be made. It could easily be used for decoration on a fun themed drink.


  • 2 packets of plain gelatin
  • 2 packages of sugar-free flavored jello
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 packet of Kool-aid, use if you want to make them sour gummies(I did not use it)


  1. Boil water.
  2. Once one cup of water is boiling, mix in packets of jello and gelatin…and kool-aid if you are using it.
  3. Stir well. It takes a lot of stirring to get everything dissolved.
  4. Pour into an 8×8 pan(or fun shaped molds). I lined mine with foil to make it easy to take out of the pan.
  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Pull out and cut into strips or shapes.
