Oops: National Gummy Worm Day, which was yesterday, flew by before we had a chance to post this recipe.
The dessert, “Dirt In A Box,” was created by Ruby Foo’s restaurant in Times Square, New York City. It’s a no-cook “dirt pudding” or trifle, decorated with Gummy Worms.
You can make the recipe more elaborate, or turn it into a dirt cake, by preparing it in a small casserole or cake pan. Our preference is to use a small, clean flowerpot (we ran ours through the dishwasher).
Get the recipe and plan to surprise your family. Just don’t wait a year until the next official Gummy Worms Day.
You’ll also learn the history of Gummy (Gummi) Worms.
