  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • 1 box instant chocolate pudding

  • 1 package Oreo cookies

  • 1 bag gummy worms


  • Follow the instructions on the instant chocolate pudding box. Substitute heavy cream for the milk. This provides more of a mousse texture after mixing together.

  • Now take one package of Oreo cookies and put them into a zip lock bag. Crush the cookies till it starts to look like dirt.
