  • 1-1/2 c. boiling water
  • 1 (8 serving-size) OR 2 (4 serving-size) orange gelatin

Stir boiling water into gelatin in a large bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Pour into 9-in. pie plate which has been sprayed with no stick cooking spray.

Refrigerate about 1-1/2 hours or until thickened (spoon drawn thru leaves definite impression.) Push gummy worms into gelatin. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

Unmold. Garnish with additional gummy worms, if desired.
