Dirt Pudding

This adorable Dirt Pudding Recipe is a favorite among both kids and adults alike. It is layered with chocolate pudding, Oreo cookies, fresh strawberries, juicy blackberries, and gummy worms to make a delicious treat everyone will love at family gatherings, potlucks, or even picnics.

I can’t tell you enough about how much my children used to love this dessert every time I made it, and it would fly off the table in no time flat. They loved every bite of it. Dirt Pudding had to be one of the most requested desserts for potlucks, church luncheons, and family gatherings.

The fresh strawberries and blackberries not only give it a more adult refined look but a delicious flavor. Have you ever made Dirt Pudding? It’s so super simple to make you’ll be shocked.

When my son was little; he would ask what I was making,  I would tell him Dirt, he would just crack up laughing and tell me that it wasn’t dirt because real dirt tastes yucky. I would then ask him, how do you know real dirt tastes yucky? He would just smile and not answer. I guess I was kind of happy not to know how he knew that dirt tasted yucky if you know what I mean, lol!

I have also used a 9×10 baking dish and decorated the Dirt Pudding with several Gummy Worms, and Mint leaves poking out of the top. I have also noticed a few people use the sand Bucket and shovel idea to decorate.

      Good morning Paula!
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I am happy you like most of the ingredients in the recipe. Keep in mind the gummies are only optional, and you can omit them. I only use them for kid-themed gatherings. Have a fantastic day.
