Dirt Cake Cups

This recipe is a great way to get kids involved.  It is easy enough that they can help adults mix, smash cookies and even assemble.  Having fun playing in the dirt!!!

Dirt Cake


1 (3.9 OZ.) chocolate instant pudding

2 cups cold milk

1 (8 oz.) tub cool whip, thawed, I use low fat

15 Oreo cookies, crushed, divided

10 worm shaped gummies



Beat the pudding and milk in large bowl with whisk for 2 minutes.

Let stand 5 minutes

Stir in Cool Whip and ½ cup cookie crumbs.

Spoon the mix into 10 small cups, top with remaining cookie crumbs.

Refrigerate 1 hour, top with gummy worm just before you serve.


This can also be made in a 8X8 cake pan.


Great snack for kids. I had them in my fridge for 3 days and they were still good the 3rd day.   A cool refreshing treat.
