What’s in my dessert?

A great way to help the kids or grandkids celebrate Earth Day is with this fun recipe you can make together. Not only is it fun to make, but it's also fun to eat!

Pudding Dirt Cups

2 cups cold milk

1 4-serving size package instant chocolate pudding (I use sugar free)

8 ounces Cool Whip, thawed

1-1/2 cups crushed Oreo cookies

20 gummy worms

Whisk together milk and instant pudding for two minutes until pudding is completely dissolved. Let stand 5 minutes to thicken. Stir in Cool Whip and 1/2 cup of the crushed Oreos. I crush the Oreos in a food processor. Spoon into 10 cups — I like to use small, clear, plastic cups. Sprinkle remaining Oreos over the pudding mixture and top with gummy worms. Chill until ready to serve.
