This is a fun dessert for any time of year but especially for Halloween!
I used Homemade Jell-O worms for this recipe which I thought were super fun because they looked so real! Keep in mind that if you are making Jell-O worms, they need to set overnight (and can be a little messy to prepare). If you prefer you can use Gummy Worms to save time (and energy!)!
- 2 packages (4 servings size) Instant Chocolate Pudding
- Milk required for pudding
- 1 1/2 - 2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
- gummy worms or homemade Jell-O Worms (see recipe here)
- 6-8 small Mason jars or plastic cups (depending on the size you would like your desserts to be)
If making your own Jell-O Worms, prepare them 1 day ahead of time.
Prepare your cups by lining them up on the counter. Place 1 tablespoon of cookie crumbs in the bottom of each cup and add in one "worm".
Prepare ONE box of pudding and quickly divide it between the cups. It sets quickly so you will want to do this fast so it can pour and set evenly.
Top each cup with an additional tablespoon of cookie crumbs and another worm. Prepare the second box of pudding mix. Working quickly, add 1/2 cup of cookie crumbs and stir. Pour second layer of pudding in the cups. Top with additional worms and crumbs.
Let set in the fridge for 5 minutes or until ready to serve.
