Dirt Pudding Cups

Just For Fun, Seasonal, Tastebuds


  • 2 Packages Chocolate Pudding
  • 3 Cups Milk
  • 1 Tub Cool Whip
  • 10-12 Oreos
  • Gummy Worms
  • Milano Cookies
  • ½ Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tbsp Shortening


  1. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on low, mix together the pudding mix and milk. The mixture will be quite thick, but that is ok. Then place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, it is time to crush the Oreos. You can put them in the food processor and chop until they are crumbs, or you can place them in a zip-top bag and crush them with a mallet or rolling pin.
  3. Remove the pudding mixture from the refrigerator and whip in the cool whip until well blended.
  4. Place about ½ an inch of crushed Oreo at the bottom of each
    cup. Spoon pudding mixture evenly into each cup until they are about 3/4 of the way full, and top with a thick layer of crushed Oreos. Place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl
    or double boiler. Place in a piping bag and cut a small hole in the tip. Pipe the chocolate on to decorate Milano cookies like gravestones or ghosts.
  6. Remove the pudding cups from the refrigerator and press the
    bottom half of a decorated Milano cookie into each cup. Add gummy worms and sprinkles to create a mini “graveyard”
  7. Serve immediately.

It’s that time of year when you might want to have a Halloween party or need the treat to send to school with the kids for their classroom parties, well Dirt Pudding Cups are the treat you’re looking for. I served these at a Hocus Pocus 2 viewing party and they were a huge hit.

Dirt Pudding Cups are a great treat for kids and adults alike. You can put them in pint mason jars like I did or in little plastic cups. Now I know with Halloween treats most people aren’t overly concerned about the nutrition information but I found some just in case.

I found this recipe on Facebook and this is the link for the original recipe https://werefarfromnormal.com/pudding-dirt-cups?fbclid=IwAR3EAhtZRCxRZ3Sliz0GfJR91UfKHatymlx4JhN_k_3gcghwYH_3GpjQpiE. The only change I made to the recipe was to not add the gravestones.

For a great entree that could be served at a party before this dessert check out this other recipe from last week. https://sundayedition.fetchyournews.com/2022/10/02/its-chili-season-again/
