This worm and dirt cake is a fun way to get kids squirming and dying to try it at the same time. It’s even a fun dish to make for an office potluck! You can use any kitchenware dish but we think using a flowerpot or sand/beach bucket makes for more squeals and interest! This is an easy no-bake recipe that you can even make with your kids.
15-20 Oreo cookies
1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
3 cups milk
1 (12 oz.) tub of whipped topping
2 (3 1/2 oz.) packages of instant chocolate pudding
1/2 tsp. vanilla
8-10 gummy worms
Using a sealable plastic bag, the Oreos into small pieces. Put about one third of the crushed Oreos into a new, clean flowerpot and set aside.
Mix butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla together. Make sure you are working with softened butter and cream cheese so it won’t get clumpy. Do not use the microwave to soften the butter and cream cheese. Simply let it naturally come to room temperature. Set this mixture aside.
Combine milk and pudding mix according to the directions on the package. Then, fold Cool Whip into the pudding.
Next, fold the pudding mixture into the butter/cream cheese mixture.
Layer one half of the pudding/butter/cream cheese mixture onto the crumbled cookies in the pot. Next, add another layer of the crumbled cookies, then the last half of the pudding/butter/cream cheese mixture, and the final crumbled cookies.
Place the gummy worms emerging from the “soil” and laying on top of the “soil.”
Chill in refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours before serving.
