The one time you'll be glad your kid has a taste for dirt! Use up those mountains of leftover gummy worms with this Halloween spin on "dirt and worms."

Ingredients

  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chocolate frosting
  • 20 cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
  • 24 gummy worms, halved

Directions

  1. Prepare and bake cake batter according to package directions for cupcakes. Cool completely.
  2. Set aside 1 tablespoon frosting. Frost cupcakes with remaining frosting; dip each into crushed cookies. Place a dab of the reserved frosting on the cut end of each worm half; place two on each cupcake.

Yield: 2 dozen.
