  • In your food processor, blitz the chocolate cookies into crumbs. Place into a spare bowl or plate and set aside.
    32 Oreo cookies
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 2 packages of instant pudding mix and 2 cups of milk, until combined.
    2 boxes instant chocolate pudding mix, 2 cups milk
  • Add 8 oz. whipped topping and whisk together with the pudding until well combined.
    8 ounces Cool Whip
  • Start layering your pudding cups by adding a few spoonfuls of Oreo cookie crumbs to the bottom of each cup.
  • Follow that up with a layer of pudding.
  • Add another layer of oreo crumbs and a 2nd layer of pudding mixture.
  • Finally, top with a 3rd layer of Oreo crumbs.
  • Place the individual cups into the refrigerator.
  • Meanwhile, place your Milano cookies onto a plate and set aside. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, on 20 second increments, stirring well in between.
    5 Milano cookies, 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • Add chocolate to a piping bag with a small round decorating tip (or a plastic sandwich sized storage bag) and snip a very small hole in the very tip off of the bag. Use the melted chocolate to write “RIP” onto your Milano cookies.
  • Before serving, decorate each cup of dirt with one of the tombstone cookies and gummy worms and a pair of candy eyeballs. Enjoy!
    10 candy eyeballs, 10 gummy worms


  • If you don’t have a food processor, you can put the cookies in a large Ziploc bag and beat them with a rolling pin until they are fine crumbs.
  • If you can’t find Milano cookies you can substitute Nutter Butter peanut butter cookies. To get more of a tombstone look, dip them into melted white chocolate and let them dry before piping on the “RIP.”
