Dirt Cups for THE Party

You guys didnt forget about THE End of the Year Party/Sleepover/Playdate/Call it what you want.....did you?

It is this Friday. So in just a few short days my house will be overcome with more girls than usual. The Husband looooooves being the only boy around (read that sarcastically). Actually it isnt going to be too bad.
M invited 5 girls.
4 are coming
2 (sisters) are going home after a few hours of play
1 is staying
1 is coming but still hasnt decided if she wants to stay the night(which is fine and we totally understand....M has never stayed anywhere but my mom and brothers)
1 didnt even RSVP (hate.this!)

It will be fun. We are going to have pizza delivered, lots of girlie play and then dirt cups for dessert. Since I was copying the recipe I thought I would just post it for you guys too. It looks very easy and the kids will love them. I bought all the stuff to make them this weekend so we will make them tomorrow night to have ready for Fri evening. yay!

I'm a little nervous about picking all these kids up from school. I have plenty of room in my Pilot (3rd row seating) but its just the anxiety of actually getting them out of school. What if a parent forgets to write a note etc? (control freak, here) All of the girls are in the same class except the 1 sister who is older.....this one worries me the most.

Pudding Dirt Cups

This dirt dessert recipe is a great cooking activity for kids. Made with chocolate pudding, crushed Oreos and gummy worms, these pudding dirt cups are as fun for the kids to make, as they are tasty to eat.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
2 cups cold milk
1 4-serving size package instant chocolate pudding
8 oz. frozen whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), thawed
1-1/2 cups crushed sandwich cookies (such as Oreos)
20 gummy worms
Whisk together milk and instant pudding for two minutes, until pudding is completely dissolved and. Let stand 5 minutes to thicken.
Stir in frozen whipped topping and 1/2 cup of the crushed cookies.
Spoon into 10 cups.
Sprinkle remaining crushed cookies over the pudding mixture. Top with 2 gummy worms.
Chill until ready to serve.
Makes 10 servings.
