A true kids dessert. I have even made it with banana cookie crumbs as sand and placed a drink umbrella in top of the cup. It is pretty in a clear cup.

I made this for a friends bridal shower and served it with a little plastic shovel. It was the biggest hit. Great conversation piece.

I made this years ago when the kids were little. Now DD is grown up and her best friend is getting married. The best friend requested Dirt for her bridal shower so, of course we obliged! We made this and put it in children's sand buckets - served with the plastic spoon. Of course, we topped it with gummy worms. A big hit with everyone, including the groom who with him 2 best friends in time to help "clean up" the buffet. Absolutely easy to make and delicious, a pleasure to eat. It's not just kids food!
