Make this Oreo dirt pudding with pudding cups, Oreos, and strawberries. These Oreo dirt cups are the cutest Easter treats you’ve ever seen!

Carrot Oreo Dirt Cups

I’m a big fan of themed Easter treats. If you saw our carrot krispies, you know that we like to turn things into carrots around here!

Strawberries are a fruit that can make a natural transition into short, fat carrots with the help of candy melts.

So goes this delicious little snack with yummy strawberry carrots in pudding “dirt.” Oh, and did I mention that the dirt is actually Oreos?

It’s all very tasty, and the look of carrots growing in the dirt is so fun. These are great for a classroom dessert for spring in addition to the holiday!

The concept is simple – you’re going to make “dirt” by crumbling Oreos, then turn strawberries into carrots with some orange candy melts.

What I like about this treat idea is that it’s really easy, and you can make a bunch in just a few minutes. That’s why this dirt dessert is perfect for the classroom!

Oreo Dirt Pudding

Ingredients

Other Tools

  • Parchment or wax paper
  • Fork
  • Microwave safe bowl
  • Plastic baggy
  • Rolling pin or heavy round bottle

Prep your space. Set up the parchment or wax paper in the spot you’ll be working. Open the pudding cups and put them to the side.

Orange candy melts melted in a bowl

Start by putting your orange candy melts and coconut oil into a bowl. Heat for 15 seconds, stir, and repeat. Do this until it is smooth and creamy, about 2 – 3 times.

dip strawberries

Grab your strawberries. Hold them by the leaves and dip it into the candy melts. Use your fork to remove the excess.

How to make strawberries that look like carrots

Place your strawberry the parchment paper. Use your fork and drag the candy melts across sideways to create lines like a real carrot. Repeat for as many as you want.

Oreos and pudding cups

When you’re done with all of the strawberries, place them in the fridge for about 10 minutes or until hardened.

Fill a plastic baggy with Oreos – about 4 – 6 cookies. Approximately one to 1.5 cookies per pudding cup.

Grab something to roll with – in this case I used a glass milk bottle. Gently beat your cookies until they crumble. You can also roll the bottle on top of the cookies to crumble them further.

Spoon a large tablespoon of cookie crumbles on top of each pudding cup. Place one strawberry in each cup, about half way into the “dirt.” Use any leftover Oreo crumbs to cover any uncovered areas of pudding.
