Adorable Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups are such a cute, kid-friendly dessert recipe for fall, Thanksgiving and Halloween parties!
Are you throwing a Halloween party this year or just celebrating at home with the family? If you are doing either, then these easy Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cups should be on your TO DO list! I love me some Halloween recipes!
Today has already been much cooler and to celebrate the fall-ish weather we are having, I bring you a classic Halloween dessert. These super adorable Pumpkin Patch Pudding Dirt Cups are such a fun fall activity to do with the whole family! I love love LOVE them for a party.
This easy recipe perfect to whip up while watching Hocus Pocus or your favorite Halloween movie and cuddling on the couch! Full disclosure: I’ve never actually seen that movie. Is it scary? Anyway, they are simple to make and taste delicious for a fall dessert.
In the spirit of the fall and Halloween season, I wanted to celebrate with festive fall dirt cups that didn’t involve worms. I think I would like Halloween a lot better if it didn’t involve worms or spiders! Why does everything have to be decorated with BUGS?! I mean, my Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Spider Webs are super cute, but still.
I almost apologized for saying I hate bugs. But! At this point, I don’t even care. Ghosts I can totally handle (hello, Halloween Boo Meringues.)
This pumpkin patch pudding dessert is perfect for what I wanted. These would even be cute for Thanksgiving, because, pumpkins. Make the “dirt” Oreo crumbs (a.k.a. the black soil) out of Oreo cookies. I use a food processor and it takes seconds and you get nice fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, just simply place them in a zip-lock bag and smash them with a rolling pin or meat tenderizer.
Pumpkin patch dirt cups are so easy, so they are the perfect fall treat to involve kids in and to send with them to school as a fun classroom snack that all the kids will be impressed by. You can easily make these gluten-free, as well. We also love this my Sweet & Salty Halloween Chex Mix if you need a good snack for a party.
Keep these cute little Halloween desserts in the fridge before serving. Happy Halloween!
