Make these Dirt and Worm Cupcakes with your favorite box cake mix, top with chocolate cookie crumbs, and a gummy worm!
Okay, so I think I am getting the hang of this mommy thing in the aspect of cooking and baking. Let me explain to you what that means. I have already started becoming mindful of most of the dishes and baked good I create. I find myself asking questions like:
- How can I make this healthier?
- I wonder if I can hide veggies or extra fiber in this dish?
- Will Calvin like this?
- Is this something we all can eat?
Do you catch my drift?
My point is I want to make food and desserts that everyone in the house will be able to enjoy. I already made some Banana and Zucchini Muffins that my son absolutely loved. Now I am going 2 for 2. I don’t think I have to work that hard to win him over with this cute Dirt and Worm Cupcakes.
You know, to justify the sugar.
Let’s talk about how to make flower pot cupcakes.
Luckily using Miss Jones cake mix you won’t have that problem. This is definitely a product I would recommend to any mom. Yes, moms, it still has your share of sugar and carbs, but the kids need to have a break every now and then. These Dirt and Worm Cupcakes are perfect for the summer and you can decorate them with edible flowers and gummy worms!

Clay Pot Cupcake Molds
- 1 Miss Jones Yellow Cake Mix (including the required ingredients)
- 1 Miss Jones Chocolate Buttercream frosting
- 14 oz. Chocolate Wafer Cookies, crushed
- Gummy worms
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin cups with cupcake liners.
- Using a large bowl, prepare cake mix according to box. Add melted butter, eggs, and milk and mix completely with a hand held mixer. Mix until smooth.
- Use a large ice cream scoop and scoop batter in individual cupcake tins. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. Cool completely.
- Add chocolate cookies to a food processor and pulse 2-3 times until coarsely crushed.
- Spread the cupcakes with frosting, place a gummy worm on top, and add 1 heaping tablespoon of crushed chocolate cookies on top of the cupcake and worm. Set aside until ready to serve.
- NOTES: If you want the flower pot to affect, what I did was bought some plastic pots, stuffed them midway with brown paper bag paper that I rolled into a ball; I placed the cupcake securely on top of the brown paper bag; finally, top topped the cupcakes off with crushed chocolate cookies and the gummy worm as I mentioned earlier.
