A really fun and delicious treat that kids and adults will both enjoy. Especially good for Halloween or kids parties. Hope you enjoy! Adapted from PIL Halloween Party Recipes
- 1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated chocolate cookie dough
- 3 (4 ounce) containers chocolate pudding
- 1 1⁄2 cups crushed chocolate sandwich style cookies, crumbs
- gummy worms
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease 12 muffin cups.
- Remove dough from wrapper and shape into 12 balls.
- Press into bottoms and up the sides of muffin tin to create a cup.
- Bake about 10 minutes, or until set on the outside but gooey in the middle.
- Gently press down with a spoon in the center to creat a hollow again.
- Cool in pan 10 minutes.
- Remove cups from pan.
- Fill each cup with pudding and sprinkle with cookie crumbs.
- Top with gummy worms.
you can form the cups by molding the dough over an upside down muffin tin--this way is much easier to get them away from the tin without breaking them. also i used my mini muffin tins so they were just a little bit bigger than mouth sized.
Found this in the Silly Snacks cookbook and made it for a dessert (mostly for the kids but the adults couldn't stay away! LOL!). The recipe I have is slightly different and calls for 1 pkg (18 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough, 1/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder, 3 - 4oz containers prepared chocolate pudding and 1 1/4 C chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs (approx 15 cookies), gummy worms and is for 18 servings. Mix the cocoa into the cookie dough then make 1 oz balls. For the most part then continue as below. First problem is that the cookie dough packages are now 16.5 oz so I used slightly less cocoa powder than called for in the recipe. The amoung of cookie crumbs is much too much. I made 2 packages of cookie dough ane got 30 cups but if I pushed it might have gotten 34 cups. Recipe I have calls for baking 12-14 minutes. I used 3.5 containers of pudding for 10 cups and barely made a dent in the cookie crumbs (thank goodness I didn't double that!). I made the cups a day ahead and filled them right before dinner. The kids thought this was the best and were nearly fighting over which one they would get. This would be a great ativity to have the kids help fill these. ETA: I used chocolate fudge pudding to add to the chocolate decadence.
Everyone loved these treats!
