Worms in Dirt Treat Recipe

This is a treat loved by all.  It is so easy to make and can be made by birthday parties, classroom treats and everything in between.

What You Will Need:

–   1 package of Oreo cookies (16 oz pack)

–   2 cups of milk

–   8 oz of Cool Whip

–   1 package of chocolate instant pudding

–   Clear cups or bowels (I use plastic cups to prevent breakage and
things to go missing)

–   Gummy worms

What You Will Need to Do:

1.   Place Oreo cookies into a Ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin.

2.   Pour cold milk into a bowl, add pudding mix and beat like you’d normally do when making pudding.  Let the contents of the bowl stand for 5 minutes.

3.   Now stir in whipped topping and 1/2 of the crushed Oreo cookies.

4.   Depending on how much you want to serve in each cup (I usually make about 6 with this recipe), place 1 Tbsp of the crushed cookies and one gummy worm into the bottom of each cup.

5.   Next, fill cups about ¾ of the way with the pudding and then sprinkle more crushed cookies on top.

6.   Finally, place in the fridge like you would normally do with pudding.  Right before serving, place a few more gummy worms.
