HOW TO MAKE DIRT CUPS 

Like I said, making dirt dessert is really easy. First, you’ll gather the following ingredients and supplies: 

  • Instant chocolate pudding mix 
  • Crushed chocolate cookies like Oreos
  • Milk
  • Frozen whipped topping like Cool Whip or whipped cream, optional
  • Gummy worms
  • Clear cups or 2 oz. condiment cups for mini versions

In a medium bowl, combine the chocolate pudding mix and milk and whisk according to the package directions. Let stand for about 5 minutes until the pudding is thick. 

For a creamier and lighter option, stir in a cup or so of Cool Whip. 

Layer the pudding on the bottom  

Basically you’ll just make the chocolate pudding according to the package directions. You can stir in Cool Whip or a frozen whipped topping to make the chocolate pudding more light and creamy if you’d like.

Then layer the “mud” on the bottom of the cup or bowl, sprinkle crushed Oreos on top, and then top with gummy worms!

MINI DIRT CUPS DESSERT

Make mini dirt cups using these 2 oz. condiment cups. This is a great option to pack in your kid’s lunches or if you’re making a large quantity for a party.
