Have you had a favorite go-to dirt dessert recipe as a child or an old-fashioned dirt dessert recipe for the Mom-in-law’s arsenal when you were young? They were often made using sweet chocolate pudding, delicious white chocolate pudding, candy worms made of ground crews, thickened white cream, and delicious shredded chocolate cookie layers. The only variation on that theme is that now we use a variety of different flavors for our deserts, such as nut and spice, cinnamon and brown sugar, and lemon and orange, to name a few. For this reason, these are becoming increasingly popular among the young at heart.

Dirt Dessert Recipes

I can remember, as a small child, and my mom would make a wonderful dessert for us to enjoy our “junk food” phase. Typical deserts back then were banana splits, peanut butter and jelly, cinnamon rolls, and the classic chocolate chip cookie. The ones I mentioned above were probably her favorite desserts as she would spend hours planning the best combination of ingredients to create her masterpiece. She also would add canned fruits (such as pears or peaches) and other items, depending upon her personal tastes. We could never have any of the “junk foods” as served in today’s restaurants, but we were still able to savor a fantastic dessert that was made using a simple mixture of sweet chocolate, gummy worms, and crushed Oreo cookies.

Different Types Of Dirt Dessert Recipes

It seems that there are many variations on this dirt dessert recipe, but one of the more popular versions uses gummy worms that are combined with chocolate chips. Other variations include adding nuts such as pecans or walnuts and then mixing in a mixture of melted unsweetened and dark chocolate. You may also like to add chopped and pitted fresh fruits to the mix, such as bananas, cherries, grapes, or strawberries. Another variation is to add miniature marshmallows to the dessert mixture, which will be especially enjoyable when it is served in a terracotta pot, as that is the most popular way that chocolate worms are presented.

This dessert is truly enjoyed by both children and adults alike, so the best thing to do is make it once. Then, you can serve the dessert as a dessert buffet for those coming over for a birthday party. It would also make a good addition to a baby shower if you created a candy version of the dirt dessert recipe. It can be quite difficult to recreate the distinctive taste of this dessert due to the addition of gummy worms, but it is well worth the effort.

Tips For The Dessert Recipes

For the most part, you will want to use a bakers’ mix that has some sugar in it. As you probably know, traditional dirt cakes use heavy cream in their dough. Therefore, you will need to adjust your baking time to account for the addition of the cream. This is not as complicated a process as it may sound. Just adjust your baking time accordingly to the instructions of your cocktail shaker.

When you are making this dessert, you will also need to include some edible flowers. You will want to add some cherry and raspberry leaves to the mix as well as some chocolate chips. If you are looking for a completely authentic look, then you may choose to include chocolate-covered edible flowers. These flowers are typically sold in bulk at craft fairs.

As the dessert is being prepared, you will need to carefully stir it to ensure that all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. This will help you avoid over mixing the mixture, which will usually cause the dirt to spread around in the finished product. Once the dirt is blended, it will be ready to pour into its proper container. You will find that the classic dirt dessert recipe includes some gummy worms, which serve as an appetizer to the delicious mixture.

Bottom Line

If you would like to add a little something different to the traditional dirt dessert recipe, you can use both gummy worms and edible flowers to create something completely unique. Both of these ingredients can be used together to create a very unique and delicious drink. Both of these drinks can be served as the main course on their own, or they can be combined with the traditional old-fashioned dirt pudding recipe. This will give you an altogether unique version of a dessert drink. You can easily substitute one for the other to create a very fun dessert that your guests will enjoy.
