National Chocolate Covered Insects Day



Tomorrow, October 14th is National Chocolate-Covered Insects Day. We’ve never celebrated this day before, but since I have a 2 year old who is obsessed with snakes and bugs right now, this celebration is a must!

Of course, we won’t be eating REAL chocolate-covered insects. Instead, we will make some chocolate-covered insects that are a little more tasty.  And kid-friendly too!

What you need: 


gummy worms // melted chocolate (we used chocolate chips) // dirt (aka crushed oreos or toffee bits) // wax paper


How to make tasty chocolate-covered insects for National Chocolate Covered Insect Day: 

  1. Dip the worms in melted chocolate
  2. Then dip into dirt.
  3. Repeat until all worms are covered.
  4. Cool on a piece of wax paper. Eat and enjoy!



^Don’t forget to lick your fingers!
