Is this not the cutest little Halloween dessert idea you've ever seen?

So, funnily enough, graveyard dirt (like, actual dirt from a graveyard) does have uses in witchcraft and folk magic. People will collect dirt from graves for protection magic, for hexing their enemies, for communicating with the dead, and a lot more. There are ways of collecting it that are respectful (and don't get you haunted by whichever spirit guards the graveyards), but luckily, the graveyard dirt we're creating today doesn't require you to visit any such places and deal with any such forces.

Our graveyard dirt is made with chocolate pudding and Oreos, and boy, is it delicious.

The ingredients that go into this aren't our usual ones, of course: there aren't many ingredients our ancestors might've recognized, or anything they might've actually called food. (After all... what the hell even is candy corn?) But that doesn't mean there isn't good magic to do here, be it with the colors of your little gummy worms, or with the actual ingredients (yes, even the Red 40). For this specifically, we're going to focus on the Red 40, chocolate, milk, and wheat that makes up our candy, cookies, and pudding.

Magic in Graveyard Dirt Dessert

Again, by all means, get deep into the color magic for this recipe. Gummy worms typically come in multiple colors, like red and blue, green and purple, orange and yellow, all that. Work with it! Call on those colors of psychic power and growth if you'd like! Or, if you want to get even crazier, start inspecting the packages for the ingredients in your ingredients. Maybe that'll make you not want to buy them again, but I mean, for a dessert for one Halloween night, I'm sure you'll be okay if you have some artificial dye.

When it comes to things like gummy worms and candy corn, you know there’ll be some suspect ingredients--like Red 40--so why not make use of them? Whether you choose to use the colors alone in color magic, or whether you use the synthetic quality of the ingredient to charm (or hex) your food, trust that there’s absolutely a magical use to even the strangest ingredients in your party foods. Here, the combination of the Moon, Earth, and Mars, as well as water, fire, and earth, come together to give you all kinds of whimsical, energetic, and prosperous fun.

  3. Let pudding stand for five minutes, or until set.

  4. Take a medium sized baking pan and spread the pudding out into an even layer

  5. Put most of your gummy worms into the pudding (they’ll sink in a bit; that’s okay).

  6. Sprinkle your oreo crumbs on top of the pudding.

  7. (Optional) use pudding or black frosting to write “RIP” on your Milanos.

  8. Stick Milanos into the pudding to act as tombstones.

  9. Decorate with remaining gummy worms and candy corn pumpkins.

  10. Store in the refridgerator until it’s time to serve.

I was cackling by time I was done setting this up. It seriously took only fifteen minutes, and it was so cute I could've died looking at it. (And I mean... it's chocolate pudding and Oreos! Of course it was delicious!) If you were looking for easy, kid-friendly desserts for your Halloween, or just quick desserts you could bring to a party, this is the dish for you. Try it out!
