It's back-to-school time, so why not have a little fun with the kids when they get home? They'll really "dig" making these Dirt Cups!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (4-serving size) package instant chocolate pudding and pie filling
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 (16-ounce) package cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, finely crushed
  • 10 (6- to 8-oz) plastic or paper cups
  • Gummy worms and frogs, candy flowers, chopped peanuts, and/or granola for decoration (optional)

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, whisk pudding and milk until smooth. Allow pudding to thicken 5 minutes, then stir in whipped topping and half  the crushed cookies.
  2. Place 1 tablespoon of remaining crushed cookies into individual cups. Fill each cup three quarters full with pudding mixture, then top with remaining crushed cookies.
  3. Cover and chill about 1 hour before serving. Decorate as desired.


  • You can crush the cookies by hand or in a food processor. To make Sand Cups, substitute vanilla pudding for the chocolate pudding and a 12-ounce package of cream-filled vanilla sandwich cookies or vanilla wafers, finely crushed, for the chocolate sandwich cookies. Use gummy worms and sharks and/or chopped peanuts for decoration.
