  • 8 Walkers Shortbread Fingers
  • 1 cup White candy melts or almond bark 4 mummies
  • 1 cup Green candy melts 4 monsters
  • 16 Sugar eyeballs
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups cold nonfat milk
  • 9 Crushed chocolate cookies (1 box Chocolate Walkers Scottie Dogs or similar)


To make the monsters and mummies:

  • Lay cookies out on a parchment paper or wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Melt candy according to package directions, adding some shortening or oil to help aid in melting if needed. Place melted candy in a sandwich bag and cut off one tip. Pipe the candy over the cookies, making them look like monsters or mummies, as shown. Add eyeballs as desired. Chill to set.

To assemble the dirt cups:

  • Make pudding according to package directions. Place in serving cups. Top with crushed chocolate cookies. Add a monster or mummy cookie to each serving. (You can use glass dishes as I've shown, or use plastic cups for easy clean up.)
  • Store in refrigerator. Do not place the cookies in the pudding until you're ready to serve them.
