When I got Aidan from the airport on Tuesday, there was a yellow Post-It in his blue pre-boarding sleeve. I fished it out and noticed that Aidan had written down a recipe. “It’s Dirt Dessert,” he said. “I want to make it with you. It’s from the book HOW TO EAT FRIED WORMS.”
That dream came true last night. So, without further ado, here’s DIRT DESSERT.
1 box of chocolate brownie mix
1 can of chocolate frosting
10 chocolate wafer cookies
20 gummy worms
make brownies as directed on box
once cooled, frost with the icing
(we used Betty Crocker milk chocolate Whipped)
break the cookies and make “dirt”
(we used chocolate sandwich cookies with chocolate creme)
spread the dirt on the frosting, and garnish with gummy worms
(Aidan added green sprinkles to for “grass”)
Maybe sneak a gummy worm or two.
ENJOY! Or be afraid. Very, very afraid.
