Halloween Dessert Idea- Pot 'O Dirt!

One of my all time favorite desserts. I learned about Pot'O Dirt during our very first murder mystery dinner party by a guest. That was 6 years ago and we have thrown a murder mystery party every year since. Every once in a while we revisit this dessert.

Our second time making pot o dirt desserts - minus the gummy worms and spiders :(

So if you've never come across this great idea before, let me break it down for you.

You will need the following:

  • as many small terra-cotta plant pots as you have guests (you can buy these at many craft stores, home supply, garden or even convenient stores (do those still exist?)
  • small paper dessert cups to place inside the terra-cotta pots (since most have nice big holes on the bottom, you don't want your ice cream to come pouring out!)
  • Your favorite flavor icecream
  • Clean fake flowers (if you really want to be fancy consider edible flowers with long stems)
  • Oreos that are separated and ground up to be dirt!
  • Candy - Gummy worms and spiders - then VOILA! You're done(YAY!)
  • Imagine adding some little tombstones...(hmm thats an idea).
