What You Need To Make Dirt Cups:
- Chocolate pudding
- Crushed chocolate cookies like Oreos
- frozen whipped topping, optional

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!
