Worms in Dirt


Worms in Dirt

Time:15 min Difficulty:Easy  

Ice cream, anyone? We’ve got the perfect sweet treat for you, with a… squirmy surprise?! Don’t worry, we’re only talking about gummy worms. Here’s a super easy chocolatey recipe for Worms in Dirt!

Here’s what you need:

  • Chocolate ice cream
  • Chocolate cookie sandwiches (like Oreos)
  • Gummy worms
  • Clear cups or jars
  • A way to crush the cookies (like a sealable bag and a rolling pin)

Psst: Not in the mood for brain freeze? You can use pudding instead of ice cream. Simply follow the instructions on a pack of instant pudding mix, then follow these same steps for your Worms in Dirt!

Here’s how you make it:

Step 1:

First, you’ll need to prepare your “dirt”. Remove the cream from inside your cookies and put the cookie pieces into a sealable bag (bonus points if you reuse it later). Crush up the cookie pieces using a rolling pin.

TIP: don’t have a rolling pin? You can crumble them up with your hands!

Step 2:

Time to assemble your terrarium-style treats! Fill up your cups by layering the ice cream, cookie crumbs, and gummy worms. Of course, you could make one big mud pit for your worms, instead!

Step 3:

Assemble the rest of the cups however you’d like!

Step 4:

If you’re making these ahead of time, place them in the freezer until they’re ready to be enjoyed.

That’s it — your super easy sweets are ready to go!
