How To Make Halloween Jelly

You’ll just LOVE how easy these Halloween desserts are to make – and the little individual pots mean they’re so much easier for parties!

  • Make up the lime jelly – make up a pint of jelly as per the packet instructions.
  • Pour the jelly into the small bowls – then place in the fridge for 45 minutes to chill.
  • Add the jelly snakes and worms – only add these once the jelly is cold (but still liquid) otherwise they melt into the warm jelly liquid
  • Let the jelly set in the fridge – put the Halloween jelly back into the fridge for 3-4 hours to set properly.
