Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you do not have a food processor you can crush your Oreos with a freezer bag and rolling pin. Just place your Oreos inside the bag and seal it. Be sure to remove most of the air, then roll over the cookies with your rolling pin. 
  • You can also use a piping bag to add your pudding mixture if you prefer. 

Easter Dirt Pudding Cups
  • If you want to make a giant Easter Dirt Pudding dessert you can. You will need to double or triple the recipe and then use a trifle dish so it creates the same beautiful layers that you can see. 
  • You can swap out the flavor of the pudding if you prefer. We love to use the white chocolate pudding mix to keep the bright white for the layers, but any color/ flavor will work. 

Storage

You will want to store these dirt pudding cups in the fridge. They will stay fresh for up to 4 days. It is best if you can store them in an airtight container.

Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this dessert ahead of time. You can make the pudding mixture up to 24 hours in advance and store it covered in the fridge. When you are ready to serve, you can assemble these cute dirt cup desserts. If you prefer to assemble the entire dessert ahead of time, I suggest doing this up to 4 hours in advance.
