Dirt and Worm Dessert Cups



This easy to make dessert is perfect for summer time. My kids loved it when they were younger and now my grandkids love it as well. The ingredients are simple


1 15-ounce package chocolate sandwich cookies (like Oreos)
1 3.9-ounce package chocolate instant pudding
2 cups cold milk
8 ounces whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
24 gummy worms

The first step is to use the chocolate sandwich cookies to make dirt. Place cookies in large zip top plastic bag. Use a rolling pin to crush them into small pieces. There is no need to remove cream center The cookies should result in small crumbs.




Make pudding mixing both pudding mix and milk. Mix til mixture is smooth Let mix sit and thicken for 5 minutes



Mix 1/2 crumbs and whip topping into pudding mix. 


Mix until the mixture resembles

Dip about 1/2 cup of pudding mix into cups and top with a gummy worm  and cookie crumbs


1 15-ounce package chocolate sandwich cookies (like Oreos)
1 3.9-ounce package chocolate instant pudding
2 cups cold milk
8 ounces whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
24 gummy worms

The first order of business when making “worms in dirt” is, of course, to make the dirt.
Place the chocolate sandwich cookies in a large zip-top plastic bag, and use a rolling pin to crush them into small pieces. Don’t worry about removing the cream filling before putting the cookies in the bag–at first they will clump together, but as you continue to crush them, the cream will blend with the cookies and you won’t even notice it.
Continue to crush the cookies in the bag until they are in fine crumbs. A few larger pieces are okay, too–after all, dirt comes in different sizes!
Next, make the pudding. Pour the dry pudding mix into a large bowl, then add the cold milk. Whisk everything together until all of the dry pudding dissolves and it’s smooth and free of lumps.
Let the pudding sit for about 5 minutes, until it thickens and is no longer liquid. If it has the delightfully gloppy texture of pudding, you’re ready to go on.
Add the whipped topping and approximately half of the cookie crumbs. You don’t have to measure, just eyeball half the bag and pour it in.
Gently stir everything together until the streaks of whipped topping disappear, and the cookies are well-mixed into the pudding.
Divide the pudding mixture evenly between eight cups–each should hold a little over ½-cup of pudding. You can fill them however you’d like–I prefer to use a large ice cream scoop because I think it’s a little neater and faster that way.
Tap the cups on the countertop a few times to level the pudding, then insert 3 gummy worms into the pudding and press them down a little so that they’re embedded.
Pour the cookie crumbs over the pudding and gummy worms so that the entire top is covered with “dirt.” Smooth it into an even layer with your hands.
