Reliving Childhood with Dirt Pudding

Remember dirt pudding? That creamy pudding. Those chocolatey cookie crumbs. The fun gummy worms on top.

If you’re like me, it’s probably been about 15 years since you’ve had this child-like concoction. In fact, I forgot all about this treat until I saw an episode of The Chew last week. Carla Hall made dirt pudding as part of their trubute show to the 1970s.

I immediately looked for the recipe online so I could make it myself. Although it looked delicious and received rave reviews from the other cast members on the show, I was disappointed in the ingredients. True, it’s a dessert. But I thought I could swap the butter, heavy cream (2 cups!) and brick of cream cheese for ingredients that are a little more waist friendly.

Here is the version I came up with, and I can’t imagine how it could be any tastier.
