WHAT IS DIRT PUDDING?

If you aren’t familiar with dirt pudding, don’t worry….it doesn’t actually contain dirt, LOL.

This is a kids treat that turns a boring pudding cup into a really fun snack.

Chocolate sandwich cookies are transformed into what resembles dirt but taste delicious.

The pudding cups become the base for a mini garden area! This is a fun treat to make when you are teaching your children about gardening.

HOW TO MAKE DIRT PUDDING CUPS WITH GUMMY WORMS

This recipe will show you how to make dirt pudding cups with gummy worms by making the pudding yourself. If you are in a big hurry you could use store-bought pudding cups.

STEP ONE: MAKE PUDDING

The first step is to make the pudding.

Add the cold milk to a medium bowl.

Sprinkle the pudding mix over the milk and then whisk until well-combined.

If you like a thick pudding you may want to add a second box of pudding mix.

Put the bowl of pudding into the refrigerator to chill for at least 10 minutes.

STEP TWO: ADD WHIPPED TOPPING

Now fold the thawed whipped topping into the bowl of pudding.

Stir the mixture until it is well-combined and smooth.

STEP THREE: PUT IN CUPS

Spoon the pudding mixture into small cups or glasses.

Place the cups in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to chill.

STEP FOUR: CRUSH COOKIES

While the pudding cups are chilling you can work on crushing the sandwich cookies so they resemble dirt.

This can be done by putting the cookies into a food processor.

Another way to accomplish this task is to put the cookies into a large zippered baggie and use a rolling pin to crush them.

STEP FIVE: ASSEMBLE DIRT PUDDING CUPS

Remove the pudding cups from the refrigerator and sprinkle some of the crushed cookies on top for the dirt.

Add in some gummy worms to each cup so it looks like worms in the dirt.

Eat these immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
