Chocolate Dirt Pudding Cupcakes

Added on by Monica Cheng.

Guess whose birthday is tomorrow? ...It's our very own, one and only, mother Earth. So here's a recipe dedicated to Earth Day!

These chocolate dirt pudding cupcakes are incredibly fun to make, and it tastes absolutely divine and is like a chocolate lover's heaven. Chocolate cupcake filled with chocolate pudding, topped with chocolate frosting and Oreo crumb "dirt" layer. And an adorable gummy worm digging into the cupcake. How could you resist? We'll be bringing these to school on Monday, so be on a look-out!
