Fun dessert in August.
Welcoming August with open arms. My son’s birthday is in a week and I am super excited. But today is the first Sunday of the month and our Sunday sweets family dessert day. Today I did not have time to make a new dessert. We have some personal stuff going on, so I reverted back to a fun easy childhood dessert. We are making Oreo Dirt Cup’s! The kids may like this one the best.
What you need.
So first off as always what do you need to make Oreo dirt Cup’s:
- Instant Jell-O Chocolate Pudding
- Gummy Worms
- Clear plastic cups
Make the Oreo Dirt Cup.
This recipe is so easy, and the kids loved it. First follow the instructions on the Jell-O box. For me it said use three cups of cold milk. We mixed the milk with the bag of chocolate powder. The kids whisk it and then Daddy finished to make sure it was fully mixed. We then set it aside to thicken.
Next I gave each kid three Oreo’s is in a Ziplock bag and let them smash it with a meat tenderizer. It does the job and each kid is able to make their own “dirt” for their cup. After this is done, the pudding should be ready just check it and make sure it is thick. We served up equal amounts into four cups. Next our kids poured the crushed Oreo’s on top of the pudding.
Then we add the worms. Now you can put them in the pudding before you add the dirt, but we add them after. We push the ends in, so they look like they are crawling out. That is it. Now enjoy. These are super easy, cheap, creative, and quickly made. Ideal for kids of all ages. You can get more creative by adding other things to it if you want. Even better you cook nothing. It is hot in San Diego today. Our house is to warm for the oven to be used.
Looking forward to making some new fun desserts this month. We will be making a birthday cake for my oldest and maybe trying a new cake recipe. The kids will love making him his cake. If you are looking for something to do that brings the whole family together try cooking or baking. This truly has been a lot of fun. I would love to hear about some of your family traditions new and old if you would love to share.
