This delicious dessert is basically a variation of Oreo dirt cups with gummy worms. You just use different candies.

Peeps bunnies, milk, oreos, cool whip, minni eggs, jello pudding and sprinkles.


You can find these simple ingredients in your local grocery store. Full ingredient amounts are in the printable recipe card below.

  • Instant chocolate Pudding Mix — I use Jello instant pudding. Make sure you get instant and not cook and serve.
  • Milk — to make the pudding. Whole milk or 2 percent works best.
  • Cool Whip — makes the pudding nice and fluffy. Make sure it is thawed.
  • Oreo cookies — or any chocolate sandwich cookie to make the dirt layers
  • Marshmallow Peeps — We used pink and yellow bunnies, but chicks will work.
  • Mini eggs — Either dark chocolate or milk chocolate
  • Holiday sprinkles — We used ones with mini carrots

You will also need plastic cups or small glasses and toothpicks to hold up the bunnies for this recipe.

How to Make Easter Dirt Pudding Cups

First, crush up the Oreos. You can do this in a food processor or in a plastic bag using a meat mallet or rolling pin.

Then, make the pudding in a large mixing bowl.

Fold the whipped topping into the pudding mixture until it is well blended. Use a rubber spatula instead of a hand mixer for this part so the pudding will stay light and fluffy.

Next, assemble the cups. Just add a little bit of the crushed cookies to the bottom of the cup. Then, spoon some of the pudding on top of the cookie layer.

Top with more crushed Oreos. Add the Easter peeps and candy. Make sure to stick a toothpick into the marshmallow peeps so that they stand up. Just don’t forget to remove the toothpick before eating! Super easy and super cute!

Substitutions and Tips

You can use vanilla instant pudding instead of chocolate. For the easiest Easter treat, use store bought pudding cups and top with cookies and candy.

Add another layer of crushed cookies between the pudding layer. You can also use both chocolate and vanilla pudding and alternate layers. If you want to make an Easter dirt cake, you can make it like our Halloween cake. Just layer ingredients in a cake pan.

Add some edible grass or tinted coconut to make grass around the peep. Try jelly beans or Robin’s eggs instead of Cadbury eggs.


Store the dessert cups in the refrigerator until ready to serve. You can make them up to 2 days in advance — To make ahead of time, don’t add the candy layer, and cover the cups with plastic wrap. Add the candy the day you serve them. Refrigerate any leftover dirt cups within 2 hours of serving for up to 2 days.
