Here’s our version of this fun ‘n silly dessert! We’ve swapped pudding for protein-packed Greek yogurt—feel free to jazz it up with Summer Berry Sweet Dip or cocoa powder (see Tips). Make the top layer extra “dirty” by adding crushed cookies. It’s the ultimate kid’s party treat! Let them assemble their own cups. Using leftover cake or doing a bit of prep ahead of time, you can whip this up in under 10 min.  


Ingredients
Preparation
  1. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat cake mix with egg, milk, oil, and vanilla for 2 min on medium. Gently stir in boiling water until smooth (batter will be thin).  
  2. Pour into lightly oiled 8" round silicone cake pan. 
  3. Microwave, uncovered, on high 5–7 min, or until centre is almost set. Rest in pan for 6 min; invert onto Cooling Rack to cool completely. Or, bake in preheated 350° F oven for 30–35 min, or until a toothpick inserted in centre of cake comes out clean. Cool 10 min before unmolding, then let cool completely.  
  4. When cooled, crumble cake.  
  5. Fill twelve 7-oz transparent cups with 2 heaping tbsp of crumbled cake, then top with 2 tbsp yogurt. Repeat with another layer of cake, then yogurt, and finally the remaining cake. Add a gummy worm to each cup.  
Tips

Turn plain yogurt into “mud”! Stir in 2 tbsp cocoa powder and 12 tbsp sugar into the yogurt before layering. 

Have fun with the layers! Swap yogurt for Chocolate Pudding, Dulce de Leche Pudding, Luscious Lemon Curd, Summer Berry Sweet Dip, or a combo. 

No Chocolate Cake Mix? Swap for your other fave Epicure dessert mixes, such as Ruby Red Velvet Cupcake Mix, Morning Glory Muffin Mix, or Fudgy Brownie Mix. Follow the recipe on the package, cool, crumble, and then continue with the final recipe step.
