"I have used this recipie in the past, I called it worms in dirt, I placed the crushed cookie and pudding mixture in a sand bucket like the ones you make castles out of in the summer time. and mixed in the gummy worms so it looked like they too where covered in dirt and used the shovel for the pail to serve. It is an awsome party treat. I am thinking of making this for my kiddos and freinds this halloween."
