Blood Worms

  • 4 packets of red jelly/jello
  • 2 teaspoons gelatin + 1 tablespoon cold water
  • Green Goo
  • 150 grams white chocolate
  • 100 milliliters thickened cream (35 percent fat content)
  • 2 drops green food gel
  • 1 drop yellow food gel


  • 1 liter apple juice
  • 1 drop Green food gel
  • Cat eyes
  • 100 grams melted white chocolate
  • Green sprinkles
  • Frog Spawn Foam
  • 2 teaspoons soy lecithin
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons dry ice


Blood Worms

  1. Tightly pack drinking straws into a tall glass. The taller the better. Make sure the bendy bit is facing up and not down otherwise it will make getting them out harder.
  2. Combine gelatin with water and set aside for 5 min.
  3. Follow the instructions on the box to prepare jelly. Add bloomed gelatin and mix until completely melted.
  4. Slowly pour liquid jelly into drinking straws. Set aside in the fridge for a couple hours until completely set. Overnight is best.
  5. Once they’ve set squeeze them out of the straws. If they won’t come out easily place the container with the straws into a bowl of warm water for 30 seconds. That should soften the jelly so that it comes out of the straws easily.
  6. Green Goo
  7. Add chocolate and cream to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 20 seconds at a time, mixing each time until smooth. Add green and yellow food dye, and mix until well combined.


  1. Combine lemon cordial with water and add green food dye. (the dye is optional)
  2. Cat eyes
  3. Add melted white choc to a piping or ziploc bag and pipe small dollops onto a baking sheet. Drop a green sprinkle on top before chocolate sets. I found doing 5 dollops and adding the sprinkle helps you get to them in time before they set.
  4. Frog Spawn Foam
  5. Add Soy Lecithin to warm water. Mix to help dissolve a little. Drop two tablespoon dry ice into the mixture and watch it foam. You want to do this right before serving for effect, and because the foam lasts a couple minutes before it dissolves.
  6. To Assemble
  7. Dip the lid of each jar into green goo ganache. Allow it drip down the glass a little before sticking the cat eyes on top. If they keep sliding off or down the glass, let the ganache set a little more or try refrigerating it for a couple minutes.
  8. Add bloodworms to the bottom of each jar and pour potion on top. Carefully spoon frog spawn on top right before serving.
