    This is the ultimate hit with kids of all ages. My nephew once thought this was a real plant on the picnic table and could not believe it when people started eating it! It is really cute for kid's parties or picnics/potlucks. I usually don't make it in a flowerpot, mostly I use a wooden bowl, which works fine also. Not only does it look great, but it tastes awesome too! (Chill time is not included)

      I made these for my son's 2nd birthday, and I'm so glad I did. I processed vanilla oreos in the food processor for the "sand", and the combination of this pudding and the cookies is amazing. I made plenty for the kids but made sure I also had enough for the adults, and it was gobbled up faster than the kid's ate their's! I will be making this again for sure. Thank you!

      I haven't made this myself, but have sampled it several times while working at the school. Many moms bring this as a treat at Halloween time, and when the book "How to Eat Fried Worms" is featured for reading class. It is a great simple treat with absolute chocolate appeal.

      I know I look strange, but dig right in.... The flowers are fake but the dirt is cake. I don't need water or tender loving care, Just eat my dirt 'til my pot is bare.
