HaLLoWeen Or AnYTiMe ReCiPe - "Dirt"

My kids and I had a GREAT Halloween this year as usual. It's a really fun time of year for us. Besides dressing up, turning the children loose on the neighborhood, and listening to "Thriller" over and over again...Another one of our homegrown traditions is for me to make my famous "Dirt". It's a creative recipe that involves Oreos and Chocolate pudding. I have been making it for them for years. I don't care how old they get, they still look forward to it. I hope you enjoy the recipe!!


1 - standard pk of Oreo Cookies
2 - standard boxes of Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix(and whatever ingredients it calls for)
Gummy Worms

I like to do this in a clear dish so the kids can see the layers. Its simple.

Make the Pudding according to instructions on the box and fill your dish almost to the top.
Empty all of the Oreos into a Ziploc bag. Close the bag. Gently crush the Oreos with a hammer or something. Keep crushing until it has the consistancy guessed it...DIRT!

Pour the crushed Oreos over the pudding.

Insert Gummy Worms so it looks like they are coming up out of the dirt.

Kids LOVE helping with this recipe. Its a fun year round treat.

Thanks for reading :-)

  3. That sounds wonderful. Since we don't recognize Halloween in my home, I will save this recipe as a birthday treat. My young ones love dirt through out the year. LOL!!!
