Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Wormy Snacks

My kids love getting gummy worms (or other animals) as a treat. Sometimes I add the worms to make wormy snacks.

For these snacks (or desserts), you will need:
  • Oreo Cookies (or other chocolate cookies)
  • Gummy Worms (or bugs, or other animals)
  • Chocolate Pudding
1. Make pudding and let cool. (Or make it super easy and use pudding cups like I did!)
2. Crush Oreo cookies and create a "dirt" on top of the pudding. (I left the white filling on when I crushed the cookies, so you can see some of it in the "dirt". If you want all chocolate dirt, use other chocolate cookies or scrape off the filling before crushing.)
3. Push worm into pudding.
4. Enjoy!

  • Place worm in ice cream and cover with a layer of crushed cookies.
  • Place in a bowl of fruit salad for a fun snack.
  • Mix in a few gummy worms with goldfish and pretzel sticks/rods to create a fishing themed snack! 
  • Cut a hole in the top of a cupcake top, stick in the worm, add a layer of icing, and top icing with crushed chocolate cookies.
  • Make wormy popsicles! Place a gummy worn in a Popsicle mold (or paper cup), cover with juice or other drink. Insert stick and freeze!

ADULT WORMY TREATS: (These are for 21 years old and older!!!!)
Place gummy worms in a container. Cover with flavored vodka or rum and let sit in the fridge for 24-48 hours. (They will get bigger as they absorb the alcohol!)
