We had an Angry Birds themed party for my son’s fourth birthday. We decided that individual dirt cakes adorned with gummy worms would go perfectly with our theme.
I found a recipe for individual dirt cups on the Kraft website and made it better by using all natural and organic ingredients!
(Mostly) Organic Dirt Cake Recipe
15 Sandwich Creme Cookies
1 tub of TruWhip
4.5 oz Box Organic Chocolate Pudding Mix
2 Cups Organic Whole Milk
Organic Gummy worms (yes, they exist)
Make the pudding as directed on the box.
Let it cool to room temperature. As it is cooling, crumble the 15 cookies either by running them through your food processor, or putting them in a plastic bag and using a rolling pin to crush them.* Once the pudding has cooled, stir in 1/2 cup of the crumbled cookies and the tub of TruWhip.
Next fill small plastic cups (I used the 9oz size) with three heaping tablespoons of the pudding mixture. Then add a spoonful of the crumbled cookie over the top of each- enough to cover pudding. Keep refrigerated until serving. Finally just before serving, add an organic gummy worm to each dirt cup.
Can be made ahead and frozen- they take about 15 minutes to thaw.
*My 4 year old LOVED the dirt making part. He helped me count out the cookies, then I sealed them in a plastic bag and he used his wooden hammer to crumble those cookies!
