These Graveyard Halloween Dirt Cups are full of creepy, crawly, creamy deliciousness! The perfect spooktacular treat for your little ghouls and goblins this Halloween!
I know what you’re probably thinking. Another Halloween recipe?? Yes, friends. I have another Halloween recipe to share with you. I made these Halloween dirt cups after another recipe I had planned for Halloween Treats Week didn’t work out, and I had the pudding already made! I also had all these great Halloween decorative candies from Wilton that I just had to use.
I mean, candy bones, bugs, and bloody fingers – what else could I do but make graveyard dirt cups?!?
Not only are these dirt cups delicious – I mean, chocolate pudding and crushed up chocolate sandwich cookies are pretty hard to resist – but they are also super duper simple to make. I hadn’t made pudding in eons, and thought it was going to take a long time to set in the fridge, but NOPE. Like, 5 minutes, y’all.
5 minutes and you can have this adorable Halloween treat ready to go. The hard part is keeping the munchkins’ little hands out of the candies while you put it all together. Gummy worms are a hot commodity around here. My kid could devour an entire bag without blinking. Luckily I still have a few places in the kitchen where my problem-solving thinker with a step-stool can’t get to and I can store (hide) baking goods there.
And she wasn’t the only little stinker trying to get into the dirt cups before they were ready. Our little Abby cat jumped up to take a look right as I was snapping my first photo. She might have been disappointed to find that the creepy crawlies didn’t actually creep or crawl, so nothing for her to chase and bat around with her little paws.
She lost interest pretty quickly upon that realization and I scooted her along so I could finish taking pictures. Never a dull moment in the Sweet Beginnings house, I tell ya.
Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, make sure you add these to your treats list – your little ghouls and goblins will thank you!
