Heckerty’s Halloween Hacks – Day 25 – Dirt Cake

Dirt Cake – Perfect for Witches to play in!!

It’s not so much how you make this weird sounding “cake” –

it’s more how you present it!

And it’s so easy to make, you can do everything in 15 minutes.

For one dirt cake you need:

  • 2 packets of chocolate pudding
  • 4 cups cold milk
  • 12 Oreo cookies
  • gummy worms
  • plant pot or
  • kid’s pail
  • foil or press ‘n seal
  • whisk


How to do it:



  • In a large bowl whisk the milk and the chocolate pudding mix
  • Continue until well blended
  • Put the Oreo cookies into a zipped sandwich bag
  • Crush them with a rolling pin until there are crumbs
  • Carefully stir the crushed cookies into the pudding mix so it looks like dirt!
  • Leave in the fridge for 10 minutes to thicken
  • Line the inside of a clean, new plant pot with foil or press ‘n’ seal
  • Pour in the “dirt” mix
  • Decorate with gummy worms!!
