Dirt cup recipe

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!

Dirt pudding cups for Easter with strawberry carrots

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!

If you love themed Easter desserts, this idea is for you! Here’s how to make these dirt pudding cups.


  • Chocolate pudding cups (vanilla pudding works too since you’ll be putting crumbs on top)
  • Oreos
  • Strawberries – at least 1 per pudding cup
  • 1/2 cup orange candy melts
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Cool whip (optional)

Other Tools

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

Note: you can also use pudding mix and make that, then spoon the pudding mixture into smaller containers. The pre-prepared cups are just easy!

Some people use a food processor to break up Oreos, which you can also do. I just find this bottle method way easier.
