One of my favorite Halloween treats is Dirt and Worms. Have you ever had it before? Well, if you haven’t, let me enlighten you. Basically, it’s a pudding base (typically mixed with whipped cream), topped with crushed chocolate cookies and gummy worms. It’s pretty simple to make, but it’s a crowd pleaser. My mom always made it growing up, and it’s something I’ve continued to enjoy making myself.

When I was in college, I remember they sold individual cups of dirt and worms at the college grocery store during the Halloween season. One time I was feeling particularly homesick, and I bought one of the cups, and it surprisingly made me feel better.

Although dirt and worms is delicious, it can be kind of hard to serve – unless it’s in individual cups! So, I thought I’d come up with a dirt and worms cookie! It took a little bit of experimenting to get it perfect (word of warning – gummy worms are not meant to be put in the oven!)

I loved how these turned out! I took a basic pudding cookie recipe and made a few adjustments to make them even better. I used milk, which made them a little more moist (and it’s also great for dipping them in afterwards). To make them extra chocolatey, I added chocolate chips to the batter, and then after they were baked, I sprinkled crushed Horizon Organic Chocolate cookies on top and pressed gummy worms into the warm cookies. They turned out exactly as I envisioned, and they are a more portable version of Dirt and Worms. I highly recommend them for Halloween parties! Jack sure thought they were fun!
