Dragon Food DessertA 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

Cooking Directions:

  1. Crush the chocolate sandwich cookies in a self-sealing plastic bag using a rolling pin.
  2. Pour the cold milk into a bowl. Add the instant chocolate pudding. Beat with a whisk for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed, and half the crushed cookies. Chill mixture for one hour.
  4. 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.
