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!

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!

This made an easy and fun Halloween dinner. My 6 year-old was a little freaked out by the "worms" but everyone else thought they were cool. Thanks for a cute idea!
