Halloween Worms
By: Linda Johansen Oct 3, 1999

Ingredients(6 ounce) package raspberry gelatin powder or grape flavor gelatin
3 (1/4 ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
3 cups boiling water

1 tall slender 4 cup container (same height as extended straws)
3/4 cup whipping cream

Directions1. In a bowl, combine gelatins.
