This dessert has worms in it. Don’t worry! They’re not real worms. I know this dessert might look a little “iffy” to adults. It’s more of a kid dessert, really. Kids get this stuff!

The first step is mashing the Oreo cookies. You don’t really need a food processor for this. Just put the Oreos in a large zip baggie and smash away!

How to make Gummy Worm Mud Cups:

Sprinkle crushed Oreos into the bottom of each cup. Add chocolate pudding next. Add a couple of gummy worms to each cup (so it looks like they’re squirming around in mud!) Sprinkle more Oreos on top of that.
