Dirt Cupcakes

When I made these creepy crawly dirt pudding cups, I knew I had to try making some dirt cupcakes the same way too! And I was not disappointed. I mean, basically its a chocolate cupcake, with chocolate frosting, topped with oreo crumbs and gummy worms. What’s not to like?!

Plus besides being delicious, they’re completely adorable too. Perfect just for fun or for a Halloween party, or leave off the spiders and take them to a gardening party, whatever.

For this “recipe”, you just need chocolate cupcakes (from scratch or a box), chocolate frosting (from scratch or a box), oreos, gummy worms and spiders. I used homemade cupcakes, but canned frosting and they turned out just perfect.
