When I was younger, Worms In Dirt was such a fun dessert to make. You stuck some gummy worms inside some pudding and crushed up some cookies on top. This is still a favorite dessert of my kids, but we have a new spin on it now. Worms In Dirt Bark is so much fun to make and even more fun to eat.
Instead of making this dessert in a cup, you will be making it out on a sheet, and instead of pudding, you are going to be using melted chocolate as your base. I love all sorts of bark but this has got to be one of the more fun to make. You can truly make it all your own with more worms or less worms. My kids love to make it with a good amount of gummy worms and of course the crushed cookies dirt.
This Worms In Dirt Bark has a little bit extra than what the original dessert did before. We are adding in some brown M&Ms which make for a tasty little surprise when you are eating the bark. I love making treats with my kids instead of just for them and this is a great family recipe. You can make it differently every time with a different mix up of the ingredients, but this recipe will give you a great starting point.
Snacking just got a lot more fun with this one that is typically ready pretty quickly. There is not a lot of wait time and these would be great to share with their friends. Having friends over is something that happens a lot here and making treats and watching a movie is always on the agenda. This is perfect for getting all the guests involved. You will also be helping them make a memory together that I am sure will get repeated over and over again.
Worms In Dirt Bark is such a fun dessert all the way around. Make sure to whip up some with your kids!
