In another large bowl, whisk together instant-pudding mixes and milk stir until well blended. Using a rubber spatula, fold pudding mixture into cream-cheese mixture. Fold in whipped cream.

Chocolate Dirt Cups (Mousse)
I used to make these all the time before I had kids with a plastic flower pot and a fake flower, but you can use gummy worms or anything else just have fun. I make this with Rich&aposs Whip or Mimi Creme and it is so easy you will want to make it all the time you can of course use Whipping Cream if going dairy.
- 1 3/4 cups Mimi Creme or Rich's Whip (chilled, not frozen)
- 1 (12-ounce) bag semi-sweet quality chocolate chips (Trader Joe's or Whole Foods)
- 1/2 package non dairy chocolate sandwich cookies
- gummy worms or fake flowers
Chill mixing bowl and whisk attachment of mixer and make sure cream is well chilled. Put chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds, stir and continue cooking for another 30 seconds. Stir again and if it is not smooth put back in the microwave for 10 second intervals until smooth.
Place cold whip into bowl of mixer and whisk on high until medium peaks form. Fold a small portion into the melted chocolate then fold in the rest in two batches, fold gently until combined do not overmix, it is okay if some white streaks remain.
Place in small cups, bowls or plastic flower pots, individual or large, refrigerate until ready to serve at least one hour and up to a day.
Before serving, crumble the cookies and lay on top like dirt, garnish with a gummy worm or fake flower.

It&rsquos National Dark Chocolate Day! Unfortunately, not everyone is a fan of dark chocolate including my husband. However, besides being very nutritious and filled with antioxidants, dark chocolate has many benefits including possibly lowering your blood pressure. Dark chocolate can also improve your brain function, may protect your skin from the sun, and can reduce heart disease. I like to think of dark chocolate as a superfood. I am fortunate that my cholesterol is good, but unfortunate that I have high blood pressure. Therefore, I try to eat dark chocolate often because after all&hellip.it&rsquos good for you right? 😉
While many kids that will be eating the Dirt Worm Bark aren&rsquot going to care about something like that, it&rsquos still nice to know for the adults that will be eating this yummy, fun recipe.

Worms in Dirt - 52 Church Potluck Dishes Snacks for Children's Chursh
And kids go CRAZY for these!
Recently my church expanded their children's chapel. Largely in the past the rooms were used for little more than an hour of baby sitting (not a small inconsequential thing). But now the leaders are trying to add about 15 minutes of religious instructions. Children's versions of the story of Moses, Noah's Ark, Garden of Eden and the like. We have a wonderful young woman who happens to be an education student and she has stepped up and agreed to do all the lesson planning and leading the events (way to go Jennifer. ).
My wife agreed to provide the snacks for the 10-20 wee ones that attend. And of course when she volunteered, she actually meant me.
Which is fine. My chance to start a new topic. A year's worth of children friendly snacks. Perfect for Grandma visits, after school sit downs to find out how their day went, play days with neighbors and friends, baby sitters. Or Children's Chapel!
So let's start with a classic. These have been around almost from the first minute that gummy worms showed up in candy aisles. Kids LOVE to play in dirt and the boys LOVE to eat worms.
- Will make 10 servings. Double/Triple or more as needed.
- 1 Package (3.9 Oz) Jello Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding
- 2 Cups COLD Milk
- 2 Cups Whipped Cream (Tub from the frozen food section works fine)
- 20 Oreo Cookies, Crushed
- 30 Gummy Worms
- Beat pudding mix and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. Let stand 5 min. Stir in COOL WHIP and 1/2 cup cookie crumbs.
- Spoon into 10 (6- to 7-oz.) paper or plastic cups Insert three gummy worms in each cup leaving half sticking out of the pudding.
- Top with remaining cookie crumbs, gently tap the cups on a table top so they mix evenly
- Refrigerate 1 hour. Serve chilled and ENJOY! if available.

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish).

“Dirt” Flower Pots
“Dirt” cake reminds me of hot summers, barbecues, and outdoor eating. When I was a kid, I used to get so excited for dessert once I spotted the flower pot set out on checkered tablecloth with the other desserts. This “Dirt” Flower Pots dessert is really easy to make, requires no cooking, and looks just adorable. You can really dress it up with flowers, worms, or even mini Scottie dogs.
As a member of the Walkers Shortbread Ambassador program, I was sent packs of Walkers’ pure butter Scottie Dog Shortbread cookies, which help support the company’s sponsorship of The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty (ASPCA). Walkers has recently launched a Chocolate version of the cookie as well. In 2012 (the original Scottie Shortbread was launched in January 2012, Walkers raised over $25,000 for the ASPCA. For 2013, the company has doubled its minimum donation amount to $50,000. Ten cents from the sale of every Scottie Dog Shortbread 3.9-ounce carton and 20 cents for larger cartons will be donated to the ASPCA.
To help spread the word about these cookies and their partnership, Walkers is giving away a Scottie Dog Tin! To enter, just use the widget below. Note: This Giveaway is now closed.
Ingredients (serves 8, or makes 4 small flower pots):
- 1 package of Oreos
- 2 graham crackers (optional)
- 2 packs of instant chocolate pudding
- 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
- 3 cups milk
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 8 oz whipped topping
- 1 box of Walkers Scottie Dog Shortbread Cookies (Chocolate or Original)
- Gummy worms (optional)
Note: You don’t have to put the “dirt” in flower pots. It will taste just as delicious in a trifle bowl, individual bowls, etc. If using fresh flowers, be sure to use organic flowers. You don’t want flowers with pesticides in your food!
To make, crush the Oreo cookies. You can add them to a large ziplock bag and use a rolling pin, or if you’re super lazy like me you can use a food processor. Add to a large bowl and reserve.
If you’d like, you can add some graham crackers to add a lighter “dirt” color. I removed all but 2 cups of the Oreo crumbs from the food processor and added 2 graham crackers, pulsing to combine. This lighter mixture will be my top layer.
Add the pudding packs and confectioners sugar to a large bowl and mix to combine.
Add the milk and whisk for 2 minutes.
Add the cream cheese and whipped topping and whisk until fully combined.
The mixture will get light and fluffy.
Now you’re ready to assemble! If using a flower pot, fill the draining hole at the bottom with cookie pieces. Fill the bottom with cookie crumbs.
Measure a straw to be about an inch below the top of the flower pot. Add the cut straw to the middle of the pot.
Surround with a layer of the pudding mixture.
Add an organic flower to the straw and continue to fill the pot with the layers until you reach the top. Use the graham cracker-Oreo mixture as the top layer.
You can also add gummy worms to the pot. Add the worms in before your final layer of pudding. Top with the graham cracker-Oreo mixture.
Add the Scottie dog cookies. Have them sniffing around or trying to dig up the flowers.
This pesky puppy already has managed to dirty up his paws in the flowers. Cute, right?
These pots are a good size to share between two people. But if you eat one on your own, no judgement here. They are really yummy. And those little Scottie dogs are more than cute, the cookies are delicious!
So next time you need to bring a dessert to a barbecue, consider bringing along a pot of dirt with some little digging friends!

Chocolate Tofu Pudding Pots
I've had this Chocolate Tofu Pudding recipe on weelicious for a long time, but when I sat down to come up with Halloween recipes, I couldn't resist adapting this one slightly to be a special holiday party treat. My husband and I both have fond memories of growing up eating Bill Cosby's favorite dessert_ Jell-O brand chocolate pudding. It was delicious, but full of sugar, sodium coloring and preservatives.
We wanted our kid's to form their own chocolate pudding memories, we just wanted to offer them something more natural and healthy. That's partly what inspired me to come up with this recipe. The best part is that you can get your little ones involved with every step. They can help put all of the ingredients into the blender, fill the pots with the delicious, rich chocolate pudding and then, make them Halloween ready by adding the "dirt", "bugs", "worms" and any other fun, creepy, and edible things you find. Let your kids improvise and make their dessert as spooky and sweet as they want before goblin it all up! This year, have a delicious (and healthy) HalloWEEn!
You know, to justify the sugar.
I have never used Miss Jones cake mix before this recipe and let me tell you, I know the box says that it tastes like homemade, but these cupcakes really do taste like they are from scratch. You can use the yellow or chocolate cake mix. It is totally up to you. You can even use the white or chocolate frosting. However, I do recommend using the chocolate frosting despite the cupcake flavor because it will make the crushed oreo cookies easier to blend on top.
Let’s talk about how to make flower pot cupcakes.
I have searched for different ways to make these cupcakes. I have seen this method where clay flower pots act as the muffin tin and you insert cupcake liners inside and bake as normal. I was not able to do that method with these Dirt and Worm cupcakes because I couldn’t find the perfect size clay pots. Therefore, I was only able to find plastic pots from the Dollar Store and those were a little bit.
I figure it is only a matter of time before I have to really start getting into making kiddie treats like these cupcakes. My son is going to want to have cool birthday parties, Halloween parties, and whatever else kind of parties growing little boys like to have with their family and friends. I want to be that mom that makes the coolest and most delicious things for her kids (no I’m not pregnant) events and friends. The trick is to make them as healthy as possible without sacrificing flavor or deliciousness.
Luckily using Miss Jones cake mix you won’t have that problem. This is definitely a product I would recommend to any mom. Yes, moms, it still has your share of sugar and carbs, but the kids need to have a break every now and then. These Dirt and Worm Cupcakes are perfect for the summer and you can decorate them with edible flowers and gummy worms!

How to Make a Flower Pot Cake
Start by making the flower pots. Smoothly melt the chocolate using the microwave or a double-boiler. Then pour into the cups so they’re 1/4 full. Rotate the cups and swirl to coat thoroughly, and then chill for an hour.
Next, make the cheesecake filling by beating the cream cheese with powdered sugar, vanilla and whipped cream in a bowl. Chill until you’re ready to use.
Unmold the pots by carefully tearing the paper cups diagonally to separate it from the chocolate. Then spoon the cheesecake filling into each cup to fill to 1/4-inch (6 mm) from the top. Sprinkle oreo crumbs on top to cover completely.
Now chill for 4 hours to let the cheesecake firm up. When you’re ready to serve, simply add a few sprigs of fresh herbs or an edible flower for decoration, and you’re ready to go!
