Shamrock Dirt Cups

Dirt cups….Earth shattering, I know.

But I had this idea weeks ago and just couldn’t shake it. I’m glad I didn’t, cause they turned out super cute :)


Instant Pudding
Air Heads

Make pudding according to directions (add milk and whisk). Crush Oreos.

Break Air Head into thirds. Then break each third in half. Then each half in half again. You should get 3 sets of four pieces.

Mold/roll each piece into a ball.

Smush the four balls together.

Using a chopstick or toothpick, push a small indentation into the center of each ball.

Push toothpick into the back. It will need a good push and some Air Head pushed over it.

Assemble your dirt cups and enjoy a shamrock treat!

    Ahhh! I love these! Brilliant and soooo cute! I will defiantly be making these for the sisters classes this year! Thanks for sharing!

    Way cute! I totally thought that those shamrocks were going to be more difficult. I think this looks yummy. Do you think it would be good with mint oreos? For an added festive touch o' green.

    Airheads? You're kind of a genius – and they're the right green for sure! I was doing mine with different kinds of mints/candies with food coloring and all sorts of over-complicated stuff! Thanks for sharing!

    When I saw your post on my blogger reading list I thought you had made something with plants and pots! What a cute desert :) And I'm sure it's delicious too (I don't know why, I like instant pudding and chocolate mousse better than the homemade ones)
