An Earth Day Dirt Cup Treat

Earth Day Worms and Dirt Cup Treat from Creative Green Living at


Whether you make these for an Earth Day party or just for fun, dirt cups are always a hit with kiddos! Plus this dirt cup treat is so easy to make that even older kids could assemble the cups themselves after an adult helps with the grinding and mixing.

Dirt Cup Treats Recipe


  • 1 box chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 box chocolate pudding mix
  • milk called for on pudding mix
  • 1 tub whipped topping
  • gummy worms

Earth Day Dirt Cup Treat Recipe at B-Inspired Mama

1. Place sandwich cookies in food processor and pulse until finely ground to resemble dirt.

2. Prepare pudding as called for on box. If using a pudding mix that requires cooking, allow to cool completely. Once pudding is cool (or immediately after mixing if using an instant mix), stir in the tub of whipped topping.

3. Assemble each dirt cup treat by layering ingredients in clear cups in this order:

  • Ground cookie crumbs
  • Pudding mix
  • Gummy worm (be sure to leave his head poking up!)
  • Ground cookie crumbs
  • Gummy worm

4. Keep in fridge until ready to serve.

I’ve seen dirt cup treats before, but have actually never made them with my kids.  This was such a great reminder from Carissa to try it this year for Earth Day.  My kids will get such a kick out of the worm!
