Dirt Cups

Dirt Cups (taken from the Jell-O Kids' Cooking Fun Book)

Ingredients

2 cups of cold milk

1 package (4 serving size) JELL-O Instant Pudding (chocolate flavor)

3 1/2 cups (8 ounce container) COOL WHIP whipped topping, thawed

1 package (16 ounces) chocolate sandwich cookies (like OREOS)
(crush them into tiny pieces in a plastic bag)

Gummy worms or insects

Equipment:

Measuring cup

Medium mixing bowl

Wire whisk

Rubber scraper or large spoon

Measuring spoons

8-10 paper or plastic cups (8 ounce size)

Pour the milk into the mixing bowl and add the pudding mix. Beat
with the wire whisk until well blended (about two minutes). Let
pudding stand for five minutes. Stir whipped topping and 1/2 of
the crushed cookies into the pudding (very gently) with rubber
scraper until mixture is all the same color. Place about 1
tablespoon of the remaining crushed cookies into the bottom of
each cup.

Fill cups about 3/4 full with pudding mixture. Top each cup with
the rest of the crushed cookies. Add gummy worms and insects to
decorate. Put cups into the refrigerator for about one hour to
chill them--and enjoy!

MMMmmmm. The dirt cups look great - nothing to bake!

I was surfing the net, trying to find some idea for my soon-to-be 3 year old to take to daycare for his birthday treat. I was looking for cake batter baked in ice cream cones. I had made them in the past, but turned out kind-of soggy.

But I found this idea on the Betty Crocker site (maybe everyone else already knew this): Instead of pouring the batter into the ice cream cones to bake, you pour it into muffin cups (lined) and set the ice cream cone upside down on top of the batter. Then bake. Later, take off the paper liner and set the cone upright to decorate. I'm going to try it.

Then on another site, recipecircus.com, I found the idea to make your cake the color or flavor you want by adding kool-aid to the mix. Ethan's really into Blue's Clues. So I'll make a white cake, mixing in blue koolaid, bake it in ice cream cones, and decorate them with paw prints.

It doesn't look too difficult, and the daycare kids should love it!

oh thanks, I will try that one with the gbabies, and then pass it to the dd...

the way I am understand, you bake the ice cream cone with the muffin, so would you bake it at the same temp you normal would do with a muffin receipe?

Right. Here's a link to the recipe, and a pic of how it's supposed to look:

I just tried the ice cream cone recipe. It turned out good. I also tried adding the koolaid to the cake mix. I won't do that again. It added a lot of sugar to the cake (the koolaid had to be sweetened).

so if you add the kool aid would it need to be unsweeten? I got a little confused there. thanks.

wonder how it would be if you just added the package and not make it up into koolaid?

thanks for the feedback on this.

The recipe called for presweetened koolaid. It might be ok without the sugar, though. Maybe if I get brave, I'll try it that way.
