How to Make Dirt Brownie Bites
This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below.
Step 1: Grease the mini muffin pan and set aside. Prepare brownie mix by following the directions on the bag.
Step 2: Remove the pan from the oven once a toothpick inserted in the center of a brownie comes out clean. While the brownies are still in the pan and hot, use a shot glass or something of a similar shape to make an impression in the center of the brownie bite.
Step 3: Pop each brownie bite carefully out of the pan. Allow brownie bites to cool completely.
Step 4: Fill the top of each brownie bite with chocolate pudding.
Step 5: Crush cookies using a food processor or by place them into a freezer bag and crushing them with a rolling pin (or your hands) until you get fine crumbs (some chunks are okay).
Step 6: Sprinkle the crushed cookies on top of the pudding.
Step 7: Add a couple of gummy worms on top of the brownie bites and enjoy!
Due to the pudding, your leftover Halloween brownie bites need to be refrigerated. Place in an airtight container and refrigerator for up to 2 days.
However, these treats are best when served immediately, as the brownie and cookie crumbs will begin to get mushy and they sit with the pudding. Also, refrigerating will cause the gummy worms to become hard.
If you want to make them ahead of time for an event I recommend making only the brownie cups and storing those in an airtight container at room temperate for day or two. Then add the pudding, crumbs, and worms when ready to serve.
