Wormy Dirt Pudding
1 (15-ounce) package chocolate sandwich cookies
1 (3.9 -ounce) package chocolate instant pudding
2 cups cold milk
8 ounces whipped topping
24 gummy worms
To make the dirt, place the chocolate sandwich cookies in a large zip-lock plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into small pieces.
Next, make the pudding. Pour the dry pudding mix into a large bowl, then add the cold milk. Whisk everything together until all the dry pudding dissolves and it’s smooth and free of lumps. Let the pudding sit for about 5 minutes until it thickens.
Gently stir the whipped topping and about half of the cookie crumbs into the pudding.
Divide the pudding mixture evenly between eight cups. Insert three gummy worms into the pudding and press them down a little so that they are embedded.
Pour cookie crumbs over the pudding and gummy worms to that the entire top is covered with “dirt.” Smooth it into an even layer with hands.
