Food Storage Recipes: Worms & Dirt

food-storageI have a confession to make … my husband HATES powdered milk. Even with Crystal’s delicious drinkable powdered milk tips my husband still refuses to drink it (he loves the fatty kind!). As one of the emergencies from our Seven Day Challenge, we had no power, and no fridge food and we decided to make a treat for our kids to keep them occupied in the evening. We happened to have some gummy worms hidden in a cupboard so I made delicious “Worms and Dirt” inspired by a meal at Boston Pizza in Banff, Canada. YUMM!

Worms and Dirt Recipe

1 box of chocolate pudding
Make with Powdered Milk!
Top with Gummy Worms

And my husband didn’t even complain that it was made ONLY with powdered milk! So at least I have one way to sneak it into foods that I know works now 🙂

What other sneaky tips do you have for using powdered milk?

    Not sneaky and not a problem. I am lactose intolerant and use powdered milk in everything that uses regular milk. My daughter’s 5 year old twins and 3 year old have drunk powedered milk since babies. So the taste is not a problem. It has never bothered me either.

    My kids love this. I loved it when I was a kid. We do put oreo's or equivilent into it to make it look more like dirt. I aslo get a kick out of putting food storage into stuff that my kids can't tell. oh and the powdered milk thing- crystal has a great powdered milk trick using vanilla and or sugar! my kids can't taste the difference! thanks

  • My only tip for when someone complains about powdered milk is me saying,
    “Get over it.”
