    (16 ounce) container Cool Whip (defrosted)
  • 1
    (8 ounce) package gummy worms (for topping)


  • Bake cake mix according to directions on box for 9x13 pan and cool.
  • I use a huge bowl so I do 2 sets of layers.
  • Layer 1 Once the cake is cooled cut into squares (makes it easier to crumble) and start to crumble it for you first layer. Note: Only for this first layer of cake, press into the bottom of the bowl.
  • Layer 2 Mix chocolate pudding according to package directions (don't let it set because it can just be poured over the cake layer easier).
  • Layer 3 Cool Whip (spread on with spatula to cover pudding).
  • Repeat layer process one more time. Then top it with an extra layer of dirt( crumbled cake) for the gummy worms to sit on.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Top with Gummy Worms just before serving.
  • You can also make these in little individual cups for a kid party. Just do 1 layer of each and 1 extra layer of dirt (cake) Top with 1 or 2 gummy worms.
  • Note: Prep and Cooking Time do not include cooling time for cake or setting time in the refrigerator.
