I remember really loving my mom’s pudding pops as a kid but I haven’t had one since. And I thought, is that weird? Probably not, when you consider all the marketing dictates that pudding pops are for kids and not adults. Not anymore! Last week we went to a “dirt birthday party” and instead of a cake they served worms in dirt. My kids went nuts! So here goes: I’m making the pudding and my daughter is taking the lead on the dirt and worms.
Worms in Dirt Recipe
- 1 box chocolate cook and serve pudding
- 3 cups of milk
- ¼ cup crushed chocolate cookies (the outside of an oreo)
- 1 bag of gummy worms
- Freezable containers or cups
- Popsicle sticks
Make the pudding according to the package and place in the refrigerator to cool. Get the containers (my daughter chose a variety of cups she found around the house) and place a gummy worm in the bottom, then cover with a thin layer of crushed cookies. Once the pudding is cool, spoon it into the cups and tap to get the air bubbles out. Place a popsicle stick in the center and a couple of worm parts on top and sprinkle with crushed cookies. Freeze overnight. We made 7 varying sizes of pops.
