Halloween Jello Worm Cups is really fun, kid-friendly holiday treat made with lime jello, gummy worms, candy eyeballs and OREO cookies. 


  • 3 ounces lime gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups ice
  • 10 OREO cookies, (thins)
  • 3.5 ounces Troli Sour Bright Crawlers, (minis)
  • candy eyes


  1. Bring 1 cup water to a boil.
  2. Remove from heat and add in gelatin packet. Whisk for 3 minutes or until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  3. Add 2 cups ice and whisk for 5 minutes. If there are some pieces of ice leftover, just remove them after 5 minutes if not melted completely. The mixture should be setting up at this point.
  4. Pour the mixture into four 5.5 ounce cups.
  5. Place gummy worms into each cup and a few candy eyeballs. Using a toothpick can help push the gummy worms and eyeballs down where you would like them so they are floating in the middle of the cups.
  6. Let chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  7. Crush up OREO cookies and sprinkle over the top of each cup with a few more gummy worms and candy eyes. The best way to crush OREO's is either placing the cookies into a sandwich bag and paddling it with a rolling pin or putting through a food processor.
  8. Serve.
