Jelly Slugs

6 Tbsp sugar
2/3 cup cranberry juice cocktail
4 Tbsp light corn syrup
4 envelopes (4 Tbsp) unflavored gelatin
Red food coloring
Powdered sugar

Place sugar, juice and corn syrup in a saucepan.
Stir over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves.
Sprinkle in gelatin and cook and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
Stir in 2 or 3 drops of food coloring.
Pour mixture into a bread pan coated with vegetable oil spray.
Let stand at room temperature until very firm, about 2 hours.
Turn the pan over and remove the jelly. (If jelly sticks, set the bottom of the pan in hot water for a few minutes).
Place on a work surface sprinkled with powdered sugar.
With a sharp knife or a small cookie cutter, cut the jelly into worm shapes.
Place on a platter lined with waxed paper.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Do not refrigerate.
Makes about 1 pound.
