Frightfully Good Dirt Pudding

My middle daughter had a assignment to write a recipe for a Halloween project at school. She wanted to make something with cookies in it, but wasn't sure what recipe to use. We came up with Dirt Pudding. It's a standard dessert that kids love and I daresay adults do too (but don't want to admit it!). My daughter said she was allowed to make the recipe to bring in with her written one, so we did. And wouldn't you know, that bowl came back completely empty!

Dirt Pudding
3 5 oz. boxes of cook & serve chocolate pudding
9 cups milk
3/4 package of Oreos
1 small package Gummi Worms
1 small package white ghosts, or other marshmallow decoration

Make pudding according to package directions. While that is setting and cooling, scrape the white icing off the Oreo cookies. Discard (or eat some, like I did). Place chocolate cookies into a large zip lock bag. Crush cookies until only small pieces remain, but not to crumb texture. Place cooled pudding into serving container. Sprinkle cookies over surface of pudding. Decorate as desired. Makes enough to serve approx. 20 3rd graders and a few sneaky adults. Enjoy!
