Cup of Worms

Time

  • 5 to 10 minutes

Materials

  • Clear glasses or cups
  • Chocolate pudding
  • Candied jelly worms
  • Cocoa powder

Directions

  1. Here is a playful party treat perfectly suited to preschool humor. Make the pudding together and spoon it into clear cups before cooling it in the refrigerator.
  2. Top it with a few candy worms and sprinkle with a little cocoa powder (dirt) on the top for a very playful snack of dirt dessert.

Extensions

  • Add worms to the sides of the clear plastic cups before adding the pudding so you can see the worms underground.
  • Add some grated coconut for baby worms.
