I made this for Halloween! To make it more wormy, I added sauteed you can see in my photo! I used BBQ sauce instead of ketchup! This was a great Halloween dinner!

I made these for a catered Halloween party for 40 kids last night. I used little yeast rolls, and tossed with bbq sauce instead of catsup. I also took black sesame seeds and put a few "eyes" on some of the was truly grotesque!! The kids went wild when i put them on the buffet.

This got rave reviews at our Halloween party tonight. I was serving adults so instead of ketchup, I put the worms in the crock pot with a jar of grape jelly and a jar of chili sauce... everyone loved it!
