submitted by Chelikins

Preparation Time

30 minutes




6 Tbsp sugar
2/3 cup cranberry juice cocktail
4 Tbsp light corn syrup
4 envelopes (4 Tbsp) unflavored gelatin
Red food coloring
Powdered sugar


Place sugar, juice and corn syrup in a saucepan.

Stir over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves.

Sprinkle in gelatin and cook and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

Stir in 2 or 3 drops of food coloring.

Pour mixture into a bread pan coated with vegetable oil spray.

Let stand at room temperature until very firm, about 2 hours.

Turn the pan over and remove the jelly. (If jelly sticks, set the bottom of the pan in hot water for a few minutes).

Place on a work surface sprinkled with powdered sugar.

With a sharp knife or a small cookie cutter, cut the jelly into worm shapes.

Place on a platter lined with waxed paper.

Store in a cool, dry place.

Do not refrigerate.

Makes about 1 pound.
