Dragon Food Dessert
A variation on the classic dirt cake, this dessert is a hit with kids. The layers of pudding, cookies, and gummy candies are a winning combination.
1 (16-ounce) package chocolate sandwich cookies
3 1/2 cups cold milk
2 (4-serving size) packages instant chocolate pudding
3 cups frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed
Yellow jelly beans
Green jelly beans
Fruit-flavored worm-shaped jelly candies
Clear plastic cups
- Crush the chocolate sandwich cookies in a self-sealing plastic bag using a rolling pin.
- Pour the cold milk into a bowl. Add the instant chocolate pudding. Beat with a whisk for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed, and half the crushed cookies. Chill mixture for one hour.
- In plastic cups, layer pudding mix, remaining crushed cookies, and yellow and green jelly beans. Add a "mushrooom" or two made by sticking a round green jelly candy attached with icing to the cut end of an oblong jelly candy. Top with fruit-flavored worm-shaped candies.
