  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins

Yield: Makes 12 mini brownie cups 1x



Dirt cups:

Chocolate pudding:

  • 1 15-ounce can full-fat coconut milk (MUST be full-fat farm a can! place in fridge overnight)
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


To make the brownies:

  1. Mine a mini muffin tray with liners or grease well and fill each with brownie recipe and bake in oven for about 10 minutes or until ready (I make the pudding as they bake)
  2. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes then take a spoon (I used a tablespoon) and press down each brownie bite to make an indentation to fill with pudding

To make the pudding:

  1. Open the can of coconut milk from the fridge and scoop out all the coconut “cream” aka the thick part inside the can and add it to a medium mixing bowl (save the rest of the liquid for smoothes or overnight oats!)
  2. Using a hand mixer, beat the coconut cream in a bowl for about 2-3 minutes or until it starts to thicken a bit
  3. Add in the cacao powder, powdered sugar and maple syrup and beat again for 2 minutes
  4. I like to add the pudding to the fridge to set/chill for a bit but totally optional

To assemble the dirt cups:

  1. Add chocolate pudding to the brownie cups and sprinkle cookies on top and add worms
  2. Serve immediately or store in fridge (they are best served at room temp or the pudding will get thick from fridge!)


*Store leftovers in fridge. I like mine room temp or I microwave for 10 seconds to soften! Just take out the gummy worm
