Make this Jello Gummy worm Treat.


  • 1 box of Jello
  • 1/2 bag of Oreos (crushed)Approximately 2 oreos per 9 ounce solo cup.
  • 1 bag of gummy worms, we found the solid color and clear but decided the clear looked best.

Other Materials

  • Clear Plastic Cups (we used the 9 ounce Solo cup)
  • Large Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Ziplock bag to crush oreos
  • Measuring Cup
  • Small cookie sheets, or pan to place cups in refrigerator.


  • Prepare Jello as directed on package. We used the basic directions as follows
  • 1 cup boiling water, 1 cup cold water
  • Add boiling water to gelatin mix, stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  • Stir in cold water.
  • We put cups onto two small cookie sheets to carry easier.
  • Carefully pour into plastic cups about half way full. Let cool so the candy doesn't melt.
  • Balance three worms over the edges. The ones that were already curved in half worked well.
  • CAREFULLY place in refrigerator to completely cool for about 4 hours. (adult step)
  • Crush oreos in a ziplock.
  • When jello has firmed, place about 2-3 tablespoons in the center of the cup. Spread the oreos with a small spoon to cover the entire surface of the jello.

Tips and Suggestions

  • Crush 1/4 - 1/2 bag of oreos first. Depending on how thick you want your layer, you will need only about 2-3 cookies per cup.
