We are wrapping up our Easter festivities at the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club this month with a little dessert. Rowan joined me to help make Mini Easter Dirt Cups complete with a candy carrot to top them off.
We love this no-bake dessert option that’s a triple layer of chocolate, but just the right size after a big meal. You can grab all the how-to steps below after watching Rowan & I whip up this cute and scrumptious Easter dessert in our video segment.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful & festive holiday that’s filled with easy, but delicious bites!
Triple Layered Chocolate Mini Easter Dirt Cups by Jodie Fitz
½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels
4 oz. Price Chopper frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 oz. Price Chopper low-fat cream cheese, softened
½ teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla extract
2 tablespoons Price Chopper powdered sugar
3.4 oz. package Price Chopper instant vanilla pudding
1 cup Price Chopper low-fat milk
Price Chopper chocolate crème filled cookies
Orange slice candies
Layer one: Melt the chocolate morsels in a glass bowl in the microwave for one minute. Note: The chocolate will not look fully melted; stir it to finish the melting process.
Fold the melted chocolate together with the whipped topping. Add to the bottom of the serving dish.
Layer two: Stir the cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar together. Set aside. In a separate bowl, stir the instant pudding and the milk together until thick. Fold the cream cheese mixture together with the pudding mixture. Add the layer to your serving dishes.
Layer three: Depending on the serving size of your dishes and the number of guests you are planning on serving, grind 2 – 3 cookies per serving dish in a mini food processor to create the dirt affect for the final layer. Add it to the serving dish.
Candy Carrot: Cut the orange slice candies in half. Using the tip of a small paring knife cut an insert into the top of the candy. Cut the green twizzler into a thin slice that you can cut down the top to look like a carrot top & insert it into the top of the carrot. Add the carrot candy to the top of the dirt as shown in the photo.
The Serving Dish: I used a mini glass dish that I found at Michaels Craft Stores that looks like a glass-potting dish for serving, but you can use whatever dish you prefer. It’s approximately 3” in height and 2 ¾” in width, making it the perfect mini bite. This makes approximately 10 – 12 mini servings.
