This was a big hit when I made it for our soup kitchen. The kids just loved it!

"Dirt Cake"


1 box of moist chocolate cake mix using two 9x9 round cake pans.
Instant chocolate pudding mix
Gummy worms
Chocolate Oreo graham cracker pie crust


Select the size pan you want to use as the sand box; but make sure it is deep. Work around whatever theme you want to use. I used the beach theme with a pail & shovel.

Once the cakes are cool, crumble one on bottom of sand box pan evenly. Add a few gummy worms. Then spread choc. pudding evenly on top of cake (the amount of boxes will depend on the size of the pan you are using but be generous). Next, crumble only half of the other cake evenly over the pudding (You can use the whole cake if you want to if you were very generous with the pudding. You don't want the end result to be too dry.) Add a few more gummy worms. Be creative! The final layer will be the graham crackers. I used the chocolate oreo graham cracker pie crusts, because it looks more like dirt. Spread graham crackers evenly on top (be generous). Add more gummy worms.
