When my children were little they literally ate dirt. They're guys, what can I say?

Since I preferred that they not ingest the dirt, the dirt pudding became a fun treat that the kids could help make.

In a pinch, you can definitely skip making the pudding from scratch and use a boxed mix, but homemade is always better, and by making it yourself, I can guarantee it's dairy-free for those who can't eat dairy.

The dirt comes from the crushed chocolate chip cookies. I like to use Homefree mini biscuits with double chocolate chips for a couple of reasons, not only are they free of the top 14 allergens and non-GMO, but the little chocolate chips also add a little more texture to the “dirt,” which is always fun!

Make sure you buy gluten-free gummy worms – yes, check the label!

It's a fun summer project to get kids to help layer and decorate these puddings and older kids can even make the pudding.

While they are definitely kid-friendly, I can attest that adults love them too!

  • In a small saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. Pour in the milk while continuing to whisk. Place over medium heat and bring mixture to a boil, whisking occasionally. Once the mixture begins to bubble around the edges, whisk constantly for 1 minute or until the pudding is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.

  • Pour the mixture into a bowl, leave to cool for about 5 minutes then place a piece of cling film directly on the surface of the pudding. Store in the refrigerator for one hour.

  • Place biscuits in food processor or blender and blend until coarse crumbs form.

  • Cover the bottoms of 4 serving cups, glass jars, or glasses with cookie crumbs. Pour ¼ cup pudding over top. Add another layer of crumbs, then the rest of the pudding. Top with a final layer of crumbs and finally tuck some gummy worms into the crumbs.

  • Refrigerate uncovered for up to 48 hours or covered if you prefer the covering to be soft.
