Fun Bug Snack For Kids: Dirt Cups With Worms

While making plans to celebrate St. John The Baptist, we thought it would be fun to make some chocolate pudding dirt cups! These gross and fun bug snacks are easy to make and fun to eat! We made them to go along with our healthy kiwi grasshopper snacks. So today, let’s look at how to make a fun bug snack for kids! 

Start by making some chocolate pudding from a package. My kids can do this without me and they feel so accomplished! Violet mixed the batch for today. Wisk the mix with cold milk. 

Little clear plastic cups would be best for this, but we didn’t have any, so we used glass. Usually I don’t give my kids glass glasses, but my kids are getting a little older and it worked out this time lol. Hopefully you have plastic, but clear really is best.

Spoon the chocolate pudding into the cups carefully so you don’t dirty the sides of the glasses. The put them in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to chill and set. 

When they are all set, remove them from the fridge. 

Cover the tops of the pudding cups with chocolate cookie crumbs. This makes “dirt” at the top of the mud! 

Finish the top with gummy worms, or any types of creepy crawlies like gummy frogs, snails, or other bugs!

Shove some of them down the sides like the worms are popping out of the dirt. Kids love this! 

Wasn’t that simple? Serve while it’s still cold! 

We ate ours outside with some plastic spoons.
