Dirt for Dessert – Earth Day Treat

For our dessert tonight- we had the infamous dirt and worms.  All kinds of ways to do this dessert, I just chose to put them in glass tumblers with some gummy worms. But in case you have never seen this–

1 bag of Oreo cookies
Bag of candy worms
Chocolate pudding prepared according to the box

Layer the 1st layer with pudding, 2nd layer with crushed Oreos, repeat again. (Easier to crush up the cookies in a zip top bag)

Then at the top, stick in a few worms.

Easy as that! Makes a very yummy chocolaty treat!! The kids really dug into this!!

    My kids love these. I do a non-chocolate version with Pistachio pudding, whipped cream and /or crushed Nilla wafers and shredded sweetened coconut dyed green. Layer same way and add bug candies or worms on top.
