Dirt Cup Recipe for Halloween

Ingredients

  • 2 (3 oz.) packages of instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 8 oz. cool whip
  • About 32 oreos
  • 10 eyeball candies
  • 10 gummy worms
  • 5 Milano Cookies
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • 5 (9 oz.) clear plastic cups

Graveyard Pudding Cups Directions

Step 1: In your food processor, blitz oreo cookies into crumbs. Place into a spare bowl or plate and set aside.

Tip: If you don’t have a food processor, add the cookies to a sturdy gallon storage bag and crush the cookies with a rolling pin or heavy spoon.

Step 2: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 2 packages of pudding mixes and 2 cups of milk, until combined. Whisk in 8 oz. cool whip.

Step 3: Whisk in cool whip.

Step 4: Start layering your pudding cups by adding a few spoonfuls of oreo crumbs to the bottom of each cup.

Step 5: Follow that up with some of the pudding mixture, another layer of oreo crumbs, a 2nd pudding layer, and a 3rd layer of oreo crumbs. Place these into the refrigerator.

Tip: To easily add the pudding mixture, pour it into a piping bag or a gallon size plastic bag, and snip off the tip to divide the mixture between the cups.

Step 6: Meanwhile, place your Milano cookies onto a plate and set aside. Then, melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, on 20 second increments, stirring well in between. Add to a plastic sandwich sized storage bag, and snip the very tip off of the bag. Use the melted chocolate to write “RIP” onto your Milano cookies.

Step 7: Decorate each cup with an RIP cookie, gummy worms, candy pumpkins, and eye candies.

Dirt Cup Recipe for Halloween Tips:

  • You can make more cups with the same ingredients if you use smaller cups. We used 9 oz. cups here but you could always opt for 5 ounce cups!
  • Use skim milk instead of whole milk for this recipe. With the addition of the cool whip, these pudding cups turn out pretty thick without needing whole milk.
  • No need to use name brand Oreos here, you can use any chocolate sandwich cookie.
  • If you don’t like chocolate pudding, you can substitute the pudding boxes for whatever flavor you prefer. Keep with the theme by adding a couple of drops of brown or black gel food coloring (at your own risk).

This Halloween dirt pudding is such a fun festive treat. Your Halloween party table won’t be complete without them! If you like this recipe, check out our other fun Halloween recipes-
