Its Jen here from Buried with Children. Since Halloween is right around the corner, the kids and I made this ghoulish snack to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Now this snack doesn’t really involve cooking, you don’t have to turn on the stove or touch a pot. But it is fast, fun and produces lots of giggles and good times.

So gather your Ghouligans, and let’s get started.

You will only need a few things: Oreo cookies, gummy worms, wooden spoon, baggies and bowls.

Put some Oreo cookies into the bags.

I used 5 cookies for each bag and honestly, I don’t know what I was thinking. Two or three cookies would be plenty.

Once the cookies are in the bags,

Take the wooden spoons and smash them until you get a dirt like texture.

Just make sure that you only smash the cookies and not a sibling.
The latter results are not pretty.

(Trust me on this. I tried to capture this but I had to be the parent and stop the sibling smashing.)

Here is what it looks like when all the smashing is done.

Next pour the dirt into a bowl.

Now get ready to put the worms in…..

Careful, don’t let them escape. Those worms can be tricky.

All that is left is to eat!

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
