Delicious Dirt Pudding Recipe

Celebrate Earth Day or any fun occasion with this creative and tasty Dirt Pudding! This dessert is not only visually appealing but also incredibly delicious. Here’s how to make it:


  • 2 boxes chocolate fudge pudding mix
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or 2 cups regular milk if using 1 box of pudding mix)
  • 1/2 family pack of Oreos, crushed (creme scraped off)
  • 1 tub Philadelphia cheesecake filling
  • Haribo gummy worms


  1. Prepare the Pudding:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the 2 boxes of chocolate fudge pudding mix with 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk.
    • Whisk together until the pudding mix is fully dissolved and the mixture starts to thicken.
  2. Add the Cheesecake Filling:
    • Gently fold in the tub of Philadelphia cheesecake filling into the prepared pudding.
    • Stir until the cheesecake filling is fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Crush the Oreos:
    • Scrape the creme filling off the Oreos and discard or save for another use.
    • Place the Oreo cookies in a zip-top bag and crush them using a rolling pin or pulse them in a food processor until they resemble dirt.
  4. Assemble the Dirt Pudding:
    • Pour the pudding and cheesecake mixture into a large serving bowl or individual serving cups.
    • Sprinkle the crushed Oreos evenly over the top to create the “dirt” layer.
  5. Refrigerate:
    • Cover the bowl or cups with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the pudding to set.
  6. Decorate and Serve:
    • Before serving, top the dirt pudding with Haribo gummy worms, arranging them so they look like they are crawling out of the dirt.
    • Dish into bowls or serve directly from the large bowl.

  • Layering Options: For a more layered effect, alternate layers of pudding mixture and Oreo crumbs in clear cups.
  • Gummy Worms: Chill the gummy worms before adding them to the top to keep them from getting too sticky.
