Try these witchy soil pots for a fun new Halloween dessert. Make sure you serve them in small glasses or tumblers so you can see the layers of slimy lime jelly with strawberry lace worms, chocolate custard mud and crumbly biscuit soil. Get creative piping the witches' legs with dark chocolate, or you could try other scary shapes such as brooms and spiders. See method

  1. Dissolve the jelly in 100ml boiling water, then whisk in the sparkling water.
  2. Snip the strawberry laces into 2cm pieces and arrange in the base of 6 small glasses. Divide the jelly between the glasses and chill in the fridge for 2 hrs to set.
  3. Meanwhile, make the witches’ legs. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Spoon into a disposable piping bag and snip off the end. Pipe 6 pairs of boots and legs onto a tray lined with nonstick baking paper. Leave to set.
  4. To serve, top each jelly with custard, scatter with biscuits and push 2 legs into each pot.
