Dirt & Peeps

Happy Easter everyone!

For dessert yesterday I made a variation of dirt & worms that I saw on Pretty Providence via pinterest.

I messed with the recipe a bit to make a more layered treat so here's what I did.

2 packages prepared chocolate pudding
1 package prepared whipped dessert topping (or cool whip, or, if you're feeling decadent whipping cream)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
crushed chocolate cookies
coconut dyed green for grass (put coconut in a bag with a few drops of green food colouring and mix them together)
peeps/marshmallow chicks or bunnies
candy coated chocolate eggs

I mixed the cocoa powder into the dessert topping to make it taste chocolaty.

I layered a full package of pudding at the bottom, half the whipped topping, the second pudding, then the rest of the whipped topping.  To decorate (added just before serving so the crumbs didn't get soggy) I added the cookie crumbs to simulate 'dirt', then the dyed coconut.  I didn't do a full covering of 'grass' since I didn't know if everyone liked coconut.  I then added the peeps and eggs on top.
