Preparation Time

60 minutes


4 packets quick-set jelly (knox gelatin)

1 litre sparkling lemonade

1 packet Rowntree's Bursting Bugs (I'd guess gummy worms would work, Yankees)

You will also need a clear plastic bowl (25 cl) per guest


Make up two of the jellies according to the packet instructions, using lemonade instead of water for stage two.

Fill the bowls 1/3 full, then leave until set.

Position two or three bugs in each bowl.

Make up the other two jellies, again using lemonade.

Allow to cool for a couple of minutes and then pour over the first layer and bugs.

Allow to cool for an hour, and then decorate with an additional bug on the top.
