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!
