July 15th is “Gummy Worm Day” and what better way to celebrate than one of my favorite desserts: Worms in Dirt!

It’s a favorite for a few reasons:

  • It is pretty quick and easy with only a handful of common ingredients
  • It is chocolate AND includes Oreos
  • It’s kept refrigerated and makes a perfect summer snack

So, let’s get started… what you need:

  • Chocolate Instant Pudding Mix:  I used the larger box 5.9 oz box, either will do (it also comes in a 3.9 oz box) – the consistency will just be slightly different!
  • Milk (2-3 cups depending on the size of the pudding mix you use!)
  • Cool Whip – 8oz container
  • Oreos – at least 20 cookies, one regular package of Double Stuffed did it for me and I had “leftovers”
  • Gummy Worms – at least one for each cup.  I’d get at least 12 from the bulk candy section.
  • Plastic Cups – I like being able to see the snack’s layers, I needed 10 cups, but it will depend on how full you make them, etc.

Step 1: Using a whisk, mix the pudding according to directions (with the milk) and let it set in the bowl for approximately 5 minutes

Step 2: While it’s setting, crush approximately 10 Oreos into fine pieces; then whisk the cool whip and Oreo pieces in with the pudding.  (I used this handy OXO chopper to crush the cookies – SO much easier than a rolling pin or doing it by hand!)

Step 3: Spoon the pudding mixture into the plastic cups, leaving room at the top for more Oreo pieces (I crushed one Oreo per cup).

STEP 4: Refrigerate for at least one hour.  (Putting the cups in a cake pan makes it easier to transfer to/from the fridge!)

Step 5: Immediately before serving, add a gummy worm… or two!
