Chocolate Pudding Dirt Cups

Three chocolate dirt pudding cups with gummy worms are sitting in the grass.

The perfect dessert for kids embracing the messiness of the outdoors is found in these chocolate pudding dirt cups. Sweet and fun to eat, kids will love the “gross-out” factor of eating dirt and worms. 

These pudding cups are easy to make using instant chocolate pudding and simple garnishes. Best of all, the result does surprisingly look like dirt in a cup. The gummy worm adds great color as well as context.

If you are feeling adventurous, this is a great dessert that can be prepared by kids all by themselves. Whether in a family environment or something more structured like a cub scout camp, it is a fun group activity.
