Slime bug cups
- Preparation and cooking time
- plus setting
- Makes 12
Beyond the layer of chocolate biscuit dirt, spooky sweets, spiders, snakes and worms lies a layer of slime-like lime jelly
- 4 x 135g packs lime jelly
- a selection of animal and bug sweets (see tips, below, for our selection)
- 2 x 154g packs Oreo biscuits
- STEP 1
Make up the jelly following pack instructions. Pour a third of the mixture into 12 small glasses or plastic pots. Add a couple of bugs to each pot, then leave to set in the fridge, keeping remaining jelly at room temperature.
- STEP 2
Once set, add more bugs to each container (lean some against edges, so they stick out the top). Pour over a third of the jelly and leave to set in the fridge. Repeat with remaining bugs and jelly.
- STEP 3
For the soil topping, place cookies in a plastic bag and, using a rolling pin, bash into crumbs, then tip onto a plate.
- STEP 4
Just before serving, sprinkle a layer of soil over each set jelly, then top with a mushroom, a slug and some ants or your choice of creepy crawlies.
