    Mmmmm….goood! I’ve made a version of this dessert with just chocolate pudding and gummy worms, but your recipe looks much better! I’ve got to make this for my kids (and me)! I think the cookie crumbs would make it seem extra ‘dirty’!

    How fun! My son would get a kick out of this.

    I would be honored if you shared this on my Sweet Tooth Friday linky. I hope to see you there. http://alli-n-son.com/2011/04/21/quick-no-rise-chocolate-cinnamon-rolls/

    Yum! Chocolate ice cream is a great addition to this! I made some last week for my son’s class with cream cheese, powdered sugar, and cool whip mixed with chocolate pudding…yum!

    Hi! I am so happy you stopped by today – I had to check out your blog only to find this…and now I am tempted to send my husband to the store! haha. I will totally blame almost 3rd trimester pregnant cravings 🙂

    Oh how funny, I made something similar earlier this week on my blog too! But mine were pudding cups instead of ice cream, and ice cream sounds much better! I’ll definitely be substituting some rich chocolate ice cream for pudding in the future. Thanks for the idea!

    Sometimes, we must throw the rules out the window…

    I just need to find a GF oreo substitute… Annie’s makes healthier bunnies, but not gummie worms…

    I did this with my first graders eons ago…

    Thanks for linking to Creative Juice Thursday…Hope to see more of your ideas this week!
