Make Your Kids Say "Ewww"...

Do you have anything planned fun planned for Halloween? A costume party? A classroom party? Maybe you are just like me and while you don't have a big gathering to attend, you still want to make the day as fun as possible for you little ones. And maybe like me you enjoy the fact that not only can you be the coolest mom ever with a sweet treat, but you also get a little thrill of totally grossing them out! If this is the case, then why not have something easy to make, fun to say and yummy to eat waiting on them after school on Halloween? Can you imagine the kiddies walking through the front door asking "Mommy, can we have a snack?" And you answering with "Sure, I've some worms in dirt for you." The looks of horror on their faces would be priceless (In fact, you might want to have the camera ready!) This is actually something I remember eating as a kid at our church Halloween party, and it was always so much fun! Eating something that sounds so gross always makes it taste better! Let's face it, with kids (especially boys) the more gross something sounds, but tastes great, the more they will love it! So, if you are looking for a entertaining, yet simple dessert for Halloween night when the ghosts and goblins stop by to say "Boo", I've got you covered!

Worms in Dirt
1 (3.4oz) package instant chocolate pudding
2 c. cold milk
1 (8oz) tub Cool Whip
1 (16oz) package chocolate sandwich cookies
Gummy Worms (I used the sour variety)

In a large bowl, combine pudding and milk. Whisk constantly for 2 minutes. Allow to set in fridge for 5 minutes. In a large plastic bag, add cookies and crush with a rolling pin. When pudding is set, add Cool Whip and half the crushed cookies. Stir well until mixture is all the same color. In small plastic cups place 1 TBS remaining crushed cookies. Spoon pudding mixture into another plastic bag, and cut corner off to make a pastry bag. Pipe pudding into plastic cups, filling about 3/4 the way. Top each with about 2 TBS remaining cookies and gummy worms.
