Hallowe'en swampy slimy jellies

These gruesome treats will delight your little monster

Posted: 18 October 2012

Make these jellies on the morning of your party and then fill them with a gruesome combination of confectionery spiders, worms and teeth. They look particularly good if stored in small kilner jars – almost as if they are part of some mad scientist’s experiments which he has displayed on a shelf!

6 leaves of gelatin
750ml lime (or other green-coloured) cordial drink,
made according to taste
Caster sugar, to taste
Green food colouring paste
Gummy worms, teeth and other creepy Hallowe’en jelly sweets


Soak the gelatin leaves in a dish of cold water for 3 minutes or until they have softened. Heat half the cordial drink in a saucepan until it is just below boiling point, then remove from the heat.

Drain the gelatin leaves, squeeze out any excess water from them and then add them to the hot cordial and stir until melted together. Add the remaining cordial drink and caster sugar, to taste. Using a cocktail stick, add a little bit of the green food colouring paste to make the jelly a truly bright green slime colour.

Allow the jelly to cool until it just starts to thicken and is slightly lumpy. Pour the jelly into your serving glasses or glass jars and leave until it has almost set, then push the gummy worms, teeth and other edible creepy Hallowe’en sweets into the jelly at different depths and refrigerate again until the jelly is completely set.

Serve with a few extra creepy-crawly sweets scattered around the jars.
