Give the kids a treat with Dirt Popsicles this summer! Combine pudding, cookie crumbs and gummy worms for a fun, delicious dirt popsicle treat!
When I made Gummy Worm Popsicles earlier this summer, I had the idea to also make dirt popsicles. I made a dirt cake for my son’s first birthday and my daughter, who was only 3 at the time, still talks about that cake. I loved how pretty the gummy worm popsicles turned out, but I was pretty sure dirt popsicles would be a hit, too – and they were!
The premise is pretty easy – make a popsicle similar to a dirt cake. You need crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, gummy worms and pudding. I made a box of pudding but you could use homemade pudding or even the pre-made pudding. If you make it from the box, don’t let it set up too much. I had a hard time scooping mine in and it had set for about 30 minutes. Next time I’ll use it right after beating it.
I started each popsicle with a tiny layer of the cookies. Then I filled the holder half-way full with pudding. I added 1 gummy worm on top of that first layer of pudding. These worms were pretty big so I just stuck with one. I filled the rest of the holder with pudding and finished with another small layer of cookie crumbs. I wasn’t sure if the cookie crumbs on the bottom (top of the popsicle) would stay on but they did for the most part.
Add the tops and freeze. Mine were in the freezer for a few hours. I run the popsicles under hot water to help release them from the popsicle molds. I used the Tupperware Lollitups molds and love them! But any molds, or even a paper cup and a wooden stick will work.
