So this “old-fashioned” dirt cup is probably old hat to most of you, but these super cute terra cotta (look-a-like) pots are worth posting about!
I saw these silicone pots at Target during Easter and scooped them up, but alas they are no longer there (no worries, follow the link to buy them, or shop around) - they look real, right?!
Baking in silicone isn’t really my thing, but I knew these would get a lot of use at my house filled with cold desserts – bonus for me they’re unbreakable! Hooray! Did I mention they’re also dishwasher-safe? Another big hooray!
Moving on! To up the cuteness factor of the puddings you could serve them with 3 inch wood taster spoons, ice cream “shovel” spoons, or you could buy a shovel cookie cutter and make biscotti-style cookie spoons.
Dirt Pudding Cups
2 large packages of instant chocolate pudding
6 cups of milk
1 package of Oreos
1 package of gummy worms
Prepare the pudding mix according to the package directions. Pour into the silicone pots (or other bowls) – do this quickly before it sets up. Set aside.
In a plastic bag, place about 1/2 the package of Oreos inside, and push out the air, close it and pound the heck out of the cookies with a rolling pin. Scoop a generous amount on the top of your puddings.
*My kids love the creme filling, so we didn’t bother scraping it out.
Place 1 to 2 gummy worms in each. Store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
