Homemade dirt cups recipe

You can make these Oreo dirt cups at home instead of buying the store-bought kind. It's easy to change this treat to fit any holiday!

– 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams) – ⅓ cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder (30 grams) – ¼ cup cornstarch (32 grams) – ¼ teaspoon salt – 3 ½ cups whole milk – 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (45 grams) – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


– 1 cup heavy whipping cream (240 ml) – 2 tablespoons powdered sugar (15 grams) – 18 Oreos regular or double stuf – 16 to 24 gummy worm


Mix the sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt in a large pot. Carefully pour the milk into the pot with the dry ingredients, whisking until well incorporated.


Turn the mixture often over medium heat to boil (scrape bottom and sides with a rubber spatula). Let boil for 1 minute to thicken and coat spoon or spatula.


After cooling, add butter one spoonful at a time and vanilla. It should be filtered into a heatproof basin with a fine-mesh strainer. Fridge the custard with plastic wrap for 2–3 hours.


Mix powdered sugar and heavy whipping cream in a clean basin. Mix low to medium with a handheld or stand mixer whisk attachment for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then medium-high until stiff peaks form.


Half the whipped cream into the chocolate pudding until just incorporated, then add the remainder until fully integrated. Blend or grind Oreos into fine crumbs.


Fill eight 9-10 ounce cups with ⅓ cup chocolate pudding. Spoon-mix it evenly. Scatter 1 ½ tablespoons of crumbled Oreos crumbs on top of each pudding layer in each cup.
