The Easiest Way to Make Dinosaur Dirt Cups!!

My youngest does not like cake!  Not sure how a child doesn’t like cake, but he doesn’t.  So for his dinosaur themed birthday party, he picked out dinosaur dirt cups for his dessert.  These were super easy, fun, fast, and cheap to make!  They were a big hit at the party.  Of course my birthday boy only ate the chocolate rocks and oreos off the top and still didn’t eat the pudding!  I, on the other hand, had a few too many!

 Dinosaur Dirt Cups

I ended up making 20 cups of desserts.  I think they were 6-8 oz cups.

First my daughter mashed up almost a full box of oreos.  We put them in a Ziploc, sealed the bag, put a towel over it, and started smashing.

 Dinosaur Dirt Cups

I used 5 large boxes of instant pudding and 3/4 of a gallon of milk for the dinosaur dirt cups.  I dumped the milk and pudding powder into my vitamix and turned on medium for about a minute.

It was so easy in a blender to be able to pour the pudding out.  I poured about 1/3 of each paper cup full of pudding.  Then my daughter topped it with some oreo crumbs.  I just kept adding milk and pudding mix in to the blender and making more when I ran out.  I poured another 1/3 of cup on top of that and she added a second handful of oreos on top.  We got chocolate rocks in the bins at Winco and spread a few on top.  Super easy, huh?

I put all the dinosaur dirt cups on two trays and covered with plastic wrap.  We made everything the day before so the day of the party I just added the dinosaur toys on top of each cup.  Way cheaper and easier than making and decorating a cake!  My kind of frugal party!
