Did Someone Say Dirt Cake?
I love dirt cake. Every year the hubs and kids ask me what kind of cake I want and I always, without fail, ask for dirt cake. This year Jake did an amazing job at it and it was the most delicious dirt cake I’ve ever eaten. He used 3 entire packs of Oreos with a recipe that just called for one, so, I think that was the secret.
On Earth Day, what’s better than a dessert snack that looks like dirt? Wouldn’t dirt cake be the perfect way to end Earth Day.
Absolutely, but today I’m sharing with you a second best option.
“Healthy” dirt cake.
The ingredients are simple: greek yogurt, chocolate animal crackers (technically ours was chocolate letters and numbers, but same idea), and sour gummy worms (because, come on, the kids expect a worm!). I used toasted coconut yogurt in this one and it was delicious, but I can only imagine that any kind would work.
Step One: Crush the animal crackers.
Step Two: Layer animal crackers on bottom, yogurt in the middle, animal crackers on top.
Step Three: Add a worm or two and serve to your happy children!
