When I was in 5th grade, I had one of the best teachers! She was young, sweet, and caring, yet had high expectations. I often find myself trying to emulate this wonderful role model. Amongst the memories that I have of her, one I will never forget is her “dirt.” As a reward, she would make each one of us a cup-full of smooth, rich, worm-filled dirt! It was always the most requested incentive.
1 pkg. (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups cold milk
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
15 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 1-1/4 cups), divided
10 gummy worms
BEAT pudding mix and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. Let stand 5 min. Stir in COOL WHIP and 1/2 cup cookie crumbs.
SPOON into 10 (6- to 7-oz.) paper or plastic cups; top with remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE 1 hour. Top with fruit snacks just before serving
