Ready for a sweet way to learn about the spring season? These simple dirt cup desserts are easy to make (your child can likely make them by themselves!), and incredibly delicious. Ready, set…let’s cook!
What you need:
- chocolate instant pudding mix (here’s a vegetarian version if you don’t want the gelatin)
- milk or milk alternative
- chocolate sandwich cookies
- gummy worms
- mint leaves
What to do:
Start by prepping your pudding according to the instructions on the box. Spoon each serving into a small dish and put in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the toppings.
Pulse the chocolate sandwich cookies in a food processor until they form a fine, dirt-like consistency. (No food processor? You could also put them in a sealed plastic bag and crush the cookies with a rolling pin or spoon.)
Wash and slice your strawberries.
You can either assemble the dirt cups yourself for younger children, or present your child with the toppings to create their dirt cups themselves! Start by adding a few spoonfuls of “dirt” over the pudding, then add strawberry slices, mint leaves, and a gummy worm or two to complete the dessert.
