Quick & Fun Halloween Dessert for Kids: Dirt Pudding

Need some fun Halloween food ideas for a party? I love making this dirt pudding recipe! Check it out!

Looking for a quick & fun Halloween dessert for kids? You have to try this dirt pudding recipe! It’s one of my favorite treats to make because it takes just a few minutes to put together and it’s so cute. I’ve always thought that it tastes kind of like a chocolate pie. Like when it falls apart and you just kind of toss it all in a bowl and dig in. Yummmy!

This is a really fun recipe to make with your kids (instead of just for them). You can whip up the pudding, then let them do the decorating! We recommend sour gummy worms as decor, but you can use just about any type of worm-like candy (dirt has to have worms, right?). Let’s check out how to make this fun Halloween dessert for kids!

  • Take a rolling pin and crush the Oreos. You want them nice and “dirt-like.” A few

Quick & Fun Halloween Dessert for Kids: Dirt Pudding

  1. Follow the directions on the back of the pudding box (or in the link for the homemade pudding) and set aside.
  2. Take two rows of Oreos and pull apart the Oreos, scrape off the cream on one side of the Oreos and add the bare cookies into a ziplock bag.

If you’re having a Halloween party, you could make up a large batch of this in a big bowl and maybe bury a few worms under the pudding mixture. Then garnish the top with more. Kids will love digging in and finding wormy surprises (well, as long as they’re candy worms, I don’t think anyone wants to find real worms in their pudding!).
