Diet of Worms and Pumpkin Pie Crunch

Maddie and I have had some fun cooking together for our CSUN Reformation party tonight. Here are some of the fallish recipes we've made...

Diet of Worms

Since we celebrate the Reformation during this time of year, I thought it would be fun to make a Diet of Worms dessert. It's pretty simple! We made 2 boxes of chocolate pudding.
Then ate a couple Oreos.
Next, we took off the Oreo icing and crushed up the Oreos into fine cookie crumbs.
After that we mixed up some fresh whipping cream.
Then we layered the pudding, whipping cream, and cookie crumbs. The cookie crumbs on top look like dirt, and then we just decorated the top with gummy worms. Maddie had a blast making this one!
Next, we made a more adult-friendly dessert...Pumpkin Pie Crunch

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9 x 13 pan.
*Combine 16 oz. pumpkin, 12 oz. evaporated milk, 3 eggs, 1 1/2 c. sugar, 4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, and 1 tsp. salt.
*Pour into prepared pan.
*Sprinkle with one package of golden cake mix evenly over the top of the pumpkin mixture.
*Top with 1 c. chopped pecans.
*Drizzle top with 1 c. melted butter.
*Bake for 50-55 mins or until golden brown.
*Cool completely and serve with whipped topping.
*Refrigerate leftovers.


Reformation party pictures will be coming soon...keep your eyes out for a really cute ladybug :)

Diedre, you're putting me to shame! I'm (only slightly) less pregnant than you and wouldn't DREAM of cooking this much right now! :)
