  8. Place in fridge for 10 minutes
  9. Crush a whole package of Oreos into dirt

  11. Then add a layer of pudding
  12. Repeat another layer of dirt, then pudding, and then cookies
  13. Add gummy worms to the top
  14. Write R.I.P. to Milano cookies
  15. Place in cups

These spooky graveyard dirt cups are perfect for Halloween because not only are they super adorable, they are very easy to make. In 30 minutes or less you will be able to serve up worm invested pudding cups to friends and family during this eerie holiday. For those of you looking for a healthier option substitute the regular pudding for the sugar free package and then use fat free whipped topping instead, and to top it all off, crush only half the Oreo package. This recipe calls for eight cups so think about doubling because it will definitely leave you for wanting more. Enjoy!
