Total Time1 hr 15 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 cups


  • Hand mixer
  • High power blender or food processor (optional)


  • 2 cans full-fat coconut milk chilled in the fridge overnight
  • 1 large avocado ripe
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 rows gluten-free sandwich cookies
  • 1 package gummy worms if you are vegan, ensure the gummies comply


  • Begin by opening the cans of coconut milk and scooping the thick white coconut cream into a large bowl. This will be easy if the cans have been chilled overnight, as the cream will be solid. Be sure to avoid adding any coconut water. Save this for another recipe or discard.
  • Add the avocado, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla to the bowl. Beat with a hand mixer for 2-3 minutes to combine the ingredients into a thick and smooth mousse.
  • Cover and place the mousse in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • Next, crush the cookies into crumbs. Do this by using high power blender, food processor, or placing the cookies in a ziplock bag and hitting them with a rolling pin. Set aside.
  • Ideally prepare the dirt cups just before you're ready to serve. Layer mousse and cookie crumbs in a 250ml clear glass of your choosing until it's full. Top with gummy worms.
  • Best served immediately, however the cups will last in the fridge for 2-3 days. The cookie crumbs may become less crunchy over time. Enjoy!
