Nothing can be easier than making mud pies. You can home make this recipe or simply assemble premade ingredients. I made these from my youngest’s 2nd birthday this past weekend. We had an insect theme and dirt cake just seemed to fit in perfectly. This is perfect for perfectly themed birthday parties (insects, flowers, gardening) and “gross” Halloween snacks. This is a fun recipe for a surprise in your child’s lunchbox too.
These ingredients can be verified to include your favorites — favorite pudding, favorite cakes or cookies, favorite accents. This is a fun dessert, have fun with it AND let it be messy because it’s dirt (cake).
I recommend a clear cup so people can spy on the layers and what’s inside.
Dirt Cake Mix Recipe
2 boxes of pudding, made according to directions
2 cups crusted/crumbled cake, brownies or cookies
accents – candy chocolate rocks, flower lollipops, gummy worms or bugs, dyed green coconut as grass
Layer! Pudding, crumbles, accents. Repeat. For fun have a bug crawling out of the dirt.
