Worms in Dirt

Ice cream, anyone? We’ve got the perfect sweet treat for you, featuring a… squirmy surprise?! Don’t worry, we’re only talking about gummy worms! This super easy chocolatey recipe for Worms in Dirt will be ready in the blink of an eye. Don’t blink too much though—these are sure to be gobbled up just as fast!

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:

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!

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!

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

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 sweet treats are ready to go!
