This post is long overdue! Last summer while crafting my boy’s’ joint 3rd and 4th “Dinosaur Dig” birthday party, I had so much fun planning decor and activities…and I also managed to find inspiration and create a themed dessert that looked like dinosaurs in the dirt! You can browse around this site for more ideas.
It was super easy to do and tasted pretty good as well, although I do think some of the preschool crowd was a bit skeptical until they discovered what was inside!
At any rate, it was super easy to do and here’s what you’ll need:
Chocolate pudding – I bought a couple packs of the 12-cup Snack Pack pudding
Oreo Cookies – generic chocolate creme cookies work too!
Dinosaur Gummies – I had to hunt around for these and ended up ordering (more than I needed) on Amazon.
Once I had all my ingredients, it was easy to assemble day of the party – my baby sister and sister-in-law assisted! We emptied out about half of the pudding from each cup into a clear cup – so if you buy a 12-pack, you can actually get 24 treats out of it, then added a layer of crushed cookies (do this ahead of time), I simply took a handful of cookies and put into a zipped plastic bag and crushed them up! Then, for the final touch, add a few dinosaur gummies to the top…honestly, 2 is good, 3 is plenty. And, that’s it, ready to serve! RAWR!!
