Crafty Cooking: Alien Eggs!

Here is a fun food I made with the kids yesterday, I call them Alien Eggs!


These are easy to make and would even be fun as a classroom treat. You will need 2 packages of Jell-O, cooking spray, gummy worms or other candies, a measuring cup and boiling water.Here’s what to do:

Step 1.  Spray the egg molds with cooking spray and place gummies inside, snap them closed. Put water on to boil.


Step 2. Mix 2 packages Jell-O and 1 1/4 cups of boiling water. Stir for 3 minutes.


Step 3. Fill using a small funnel. You will have enough to make 6 eggs. 

You can also pour the mixture in a baking pan and cut them into squares or mix the jello-normally (these eggs will be more dense than regular jello) and pour them in clear glass bowls or small mason jars with the gummy worms inside for a fishing themed treat! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  4. Fun idea Lindsay….will send that on to our daughter to make for grandson. Cody!!!!! YUM!
    Paper Hugs,


  5. Where do you get the jello molds, I would love to make these with my grandkids.


    • I got them a few years ago at Mardens. If you can’t get these you can try the plastic egg cookers they sell at bed bath and beyond. They are meant to boil eggs is so you can have hard boiled eggs without having to peel off a shell:) You might try the jello website too!


  6. Now this looks like a lot of fun. I’m sure my kids will enjoy this. Where did you get the idea from? It really looks good.


    • I saw a dessert for a fishing party and there was blue jello with a goldfish cracker in it and I thought it was cute.Also I saw one with chocolate pudding and gummy worms with crumbled oreo cookies on top and thought that was cute too, I was inspired by those!


  7. I made these with my grandsons and they did not turn out like the pic. The jello was too hot and the gummy worms simply melted into a colorful puddle at the bottom of the egg. The problem is the jello is too hot and needs to cool to almost a syrupy consistencey before pouring in. My grandsons were disappointed. They ate the eggs but the gummy part was so chewy they didn’t really care for them.


    • huh, mine melted a bit at the bottom, I wonder if I had a different type of gummy worm, maybe because they were the opaque pastel colored ones they didn’t melt all the way. Sorry about that.
