Dirt and Worms!

Dirt and worms brings me back to the third grade when kids brought in treats for their birthday. It was the first time I ever had dirt and worms, and I believe the last. Until now! My friend at work has been talking about dirt and worms for awhile, so I made it for her birthday. And it was so yummy!!! The best part is, it only took minutes to make! It's a nice quick treat and fun for kids (and adults too...ahem).

Dirt and Worms
Makes about 10 - 7oz cups
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 pkg. (4-serving size) Jello-O chocolate instant pudding
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip whipped topping, thawed
  • 20 Oreo Cookies, finely crushed, divided (I take out the creme)
  • Gummy Worms (plain or sour)
Pour the milk into a large bowl and add the pudding mix. Beat with a whisk until well blended, about 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Mix in the Cool Whip and half of the Oreo crumbs.

Pour into cups or container of your choice and top with remaining Oreo crumbs (you can always crush up some more Oreos if want more dirt on top). Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and add gummy worms before serving.



  1. Ahh, a nostalgic treat! Love it :)

  2. I bet your friend really enjoyed them! Very cute.

  3. Have you ever made a dirt cake? Sort-of like this but much richer.

  4. jomamma-No, sounds yummy though! Do you have a recipe for it?

  5. I'll see if I can find it for you.
