Wiggly Worm Torte Recipe

Wiggly Worm Torte Recipe
Want some new ideas for your upcoming Halloween BOO-ffet? There are plenty of absolutely disgusting things that can be served at Halloween, and the following Wiggly Worm Torte is not only disgusting, unappetizing, easy, and tasty, but it is perfect for a small centerpiece or boo-ffet offering at the annual Halloween BOO-ffet. Halloween is the only time we can get away with serving repulsive food like this, so why not have fun and see family and guests reactions when they discover what you have prepared. The unspoken rule of course, is that the food has to be made with fresh, good ingredients and has to taste good; it’s only the presentation and name of the dish that should be frightening.
Instant pudding, cookie crumbs, and gummy worms make up this scary torte; only on Halloween does anyone want to pluck worms from a pile of dirt and gobble them down. Kids will not only enjoy eating this torte, but it is easy enough for them to make by themselves. There is no cooking involved, so it doesn’t require much supervision. The ingredients are minimal, too, so it is an extremely quick dessert.
