“Carrots in Dirt” Pudding Cups

If you’re here, that means you want to learn how to make “Carrots in Dirt” Pudding Cups and don’t necessarily want an anecdote to go along with the blog post, am I right?

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve clicked on a pin or followed a link off google in search for a recipe and the blog post is sooo long. Like, just give me what I came here for, lady! The recipe! 🙂

So in the spirit of keeping it short & sweet, let’s jump right in…

What you’ll need

• Pack of original Oreo cookies

• About 4 packs of chocolate snack pudding cups (will make 8)

• 1 pack of orange colored candy melts

• 8 strawberries

• candy for garnish (optional)

• storage gallon sized ziploc bag

• parchment paper

• clear 9 oz. plastic cups

• rolling pin

Make your “dirt”

Separate Oreo cookies from crème filling, leaving only the chocolate cookies (top + bottom). Discard crème filling or set aside for another day 🙂

Place your chocolate top and bottom cookie pieces in storage gallon ziploc and seal bag.

Using your rolling pin, mildly pat ziploc bag until cookies start to crumble. Alternate by rolling pin back and forth over flat bag. Once you’ve reached desired “dirt” texture, set aside.

Make your “carrots”

In a medium mixing bowl, place orange candy melts. Set in microwave for 30 seconds at a time, on high, for a total of 60 seconds. Gently stirring chocolate pieces with spatula in between heating.

Pro Tip: add a teaspoon of coconut oil to melted candy melts to smooth out texture for dipping.

Dip one strawberry at a time, covering the body of the strawberry. Do not cut off leaves or stems! Set aside to dry on parchment paper. Repeat this process with remaining strawberries.


Take two chocolate pudding cups and pour out into one 9oz clear cup. Make sure cup is filled evenly. Top with cookie crumble. Place “carrot” in the center of the crumble, slightly vertical to appear as if coming out of the ground. 

Garnish with candy is optional and always welcomed!

That’s all! Super cute and easy to make. Watch full video for step by step tutorial

Hope you enjoy and please let me know if you tried making it!

XOXO, terri
