Preparation Time

30 minutes


1/2 Pound Gummy worms (buy at the candy store)

1 – 20 oz. package of Oreo cookies (crush cookies in food processor)

1/4 cup butter (softened)

1 – 8 oz. package of cream cheese

1 cup powdered sugar

2 pkgs. vanilla pudding

3 1/2 cups milk (use whole milk)

1 – 12 oz. pkg. frozen whipped topping (like Cool-Whip)


Add cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar together and put aside.

Mix pudding mix with milk, then blend in with cream cheese mixture.

Fold in whipped topping.

Layer “dirt”, worms and creamy mixture over and over making sure top layer of cake is dirt. (reserve a few worms to stick out of the top of the cake)

The mixture must stay in the fridge for 6 hours before serving.

When I've made this in the past I serve it in a large ceramic cauldron. I've also seen it served in a large clay pot that has been lined with plastic wrap.
