Holiday crafts - Dirt cup puddings

Mini had spotted the packet of biscuits in the cupboard a good week ago, and had been asking to eat them. Each time I had to say no without revealing their actual use, I think he assumed me and the NC were just going to eat them all, so imagine his face when I called him and Dollop through to the kitchen to find a plate of the desired biscuits, with packets of instant whip and jelly snakes!

Today's make is Dirt Cup Puddings. These would be great for parties, or if you had a group of kids over in the holidays - either make them in advance, or give them something to do.

Again, these are inspired by good old Pinterest. All the 'recipes' for these that I've seen though use Oreos. As much as I love Oreos, I prefer Bourbon biscuits, so that's what I've used.

What you need:
Chocolate Instant Whip, and enough milk to make
Bourbon biscuits (about 4 per pack of Instant Whip)
Jelly snakes or worms

These are so simple to make, Dollop managed it with minimal assistance, Mini with none.

 Crush the biscuits in a bag with a rolling pin or similar until fine.

Make the Instant Whip following the instructions.

Spoon the Instant Whip into bowls (we found that 4 portions was a good size).

Sprinkle the biscuit crumbs over the Instant Whip.

Finally, add the Jelly Snakes/Worms - poke them in and around the Instant Whip, lay them on top - however you fancy. Leave in the fridge for an hour or so, then serve.
