  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa
  • Chocolate sandwich cookies or chocolate graham crackers
  • Gummy worms
  • Ice cream
  • Flower pot
  • 2 plastic bags
  • Rolling pin
Make "Yummy Worms"

Mix the honey and peanut butter in a coffee mug. Add the powdered milk and cocoa and stir until you can mix it with your hands. If it's too sticky, add more powdered milk. Shape the mixture into little worms. Use the back of a knife to mark the worms' rings. Serve the worms with a salad.

Make "Dirt Dessert"
  • Put a clean plastic bag in a small flower pot and cut it so that it fits perfectly.
  • Put some chocolate sandwich cookies or chocolate graham crackers in another plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them. Keep crushing more until you have enough to fill the pot. This will be the "soil."
  • Then mix in lots of gummy worms and put the mixture into the pot. Poke in a few more gummy worms to make it look as if some of them are crawling out of the pot.
  • Decorate your pot with a clean plastic flower or a flower you’ve made from cardboard.
  • Serve the "soil" and worms over a dish of ice cream.
