Let's Eat Dirt


Make 3 boxes of chocolate pudding. Mix part of the pudding with some non-dairy topping to obtain a "muddy" shade of brown. Crumble up some chocolate crme sandwich cookies and layer in a small plastic cup

  • the darker pudding mud,
  • some crushed cookie, and
  • the lighter pudding mud.
Top with a few gummy worms and serve. Kids love eating dirt!
