I wanted to make one of my classes a treat for being so well-behaved. In South Carolina, second year teachers have to go through an evaluation process to get our professional teaching license. That means several unannounced observations throughout the year. I had my first one recently, and my kids were so well behaved that I wanted to reward them with a treat. (Luckily they are also well behaved all the time anyway!). Since it was so close to Halloween, I wanted to make something appropriate for the occasion and something they would love (this is 7th grade). I decided on dirt cupcakes. It just came to me to make these, but since I’ve seen them before I can’t exactly take the credit- I think they’re a pretty commonly made kid treat. They are very simple to make, and kids (and probably adults too!) will just love them! My kids told me that I am their favorite teacher
Bake cupcakes as directed and cool. Frost lightly with chocolate frosting. Dip in Oreo crumbs, and then stick the gummy worm in the center of the cupcake. Enjoy!
