Make This Super Cute ‘Dirt’ Recipe With the Kids in 7 Fun Steps (PHOTOS)

chocoalte dirt dessert cupsDuring winter break last week, my son asked if we could make dirt. I thought he was talking about composting, but no -- he meant a chocolate dessert created by YouTube vlogger CutiePieMarzia. It's a chocolate cup filled with pudding and strawberries topped with crushed cookies and gummy worms to look like soil.

I love the idea -- spring seems a long, long way off. It's going to be forever before we actually start gardening, so this fun dessert lets you pretend in a delicious way. Here's a recipe and steps for making chocolate "dirt" dessert cups.

Chocolate "Dirt" Dessert Cups

Ingredients:

  • Balloons, smallest size you can find
  • 1 (6-ounce) bag chocolate chips
  • 12 Oreo cookies, cream filling removed and crushed
  • 4 snack-size containers of pudding
  • 8 strawberries, sliced
  • Gummy worms

Honestly the whole chocolate covered balloon thing looks more trouble then its worth. We always put our dirt in a plastic cup with a lolypop daisy. Less mess, more kid friendly.

Sorry but that woman did not create dirt, just that particular fancy presentation.
