Gummy Worm Mud Cups

Today all kinds of food bloggers are celebrating Two Peas and Their Pod’s baby shower. They are having a boy so I decided to make something boyish. Boys like mud, so I made Mud Cups!

These mud cups have worms in them. Don’t worry! They’re not real worms. :)

This is a very simple recipe. Only three ingredients. Chocolate pudding, crushed oreos, and gummy worms.

Sample some just to make sure that their aren’t any real worms in the bowl!

Smash those oreos!

Fill the cups…. oreos, pudding, worms, repeat.

You need at least 3 worms on top and 2 worms in the middle.

The mud cups tasted great and my friend’s family loved them! Congratulations Two Peas and Their Pod! I think that you should name your baby Brian.

And even a kid can contribute to a baby shower…. Like Me!

    Yum, yum and double yum! What a fantastic idea; I’m thinking even the teens I teach at school would flip for these.
