During 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
- 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
