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!
So cute and creative! My daughters will love this treat!
What a great idea! your kids are soo cute!
