Dirt Cake with Gummy Worms

This is the easiest way I know of to make a dirt cake! I make them for my kids often, and they LOVE them...especially for birthdays or other special events.





Ingredients:

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix
  • 1 package of Oreos
  • Gummy worms
  • Chocolate frosting


Directions:

1. Prepare chocolate cake mix, according to package directions, in a square or rectangular cake pan.

2. After the cake cools completely, frost an even layer of chocolate frosting on the top.

3. Dump Oreo cookies into a double-bagged freezer bag. Seal and crush with hands or mallet.

4. After Oreos are completely crushed (to look like "dirt"), pour them over your frosted cake.

5. Add gummy worms to complete the look. At Halloween, you can decorate this cake to look like a graveyard with little headstones, ghosts, worms, etc. For a birthday, you could spell out "Happy Birthday" with the gummy worms, or simply write the words on top with icing.
