Bird Nest Dirt Cake Cups are the perfect chocolate pudding layered dessert to celebrate Spring.
Spring weather is finally here! It is warm and sunny outside. The birds are singing and flowers are blooming. To celebrate springtime, I decided to make Bird Nest Dirt Cake Cups. If you don’t know what dirt cake is, it is a pudding dessert layered with crushed cookies. I used chocolate pudding and crushed Oreos for the layers with mini candy eggs placed throughout. Then I decorated the top to look like a bird nest. I used crushed Oreos to form a nest. I decorated the nest with chocolate sprinkles and placed mini candy eggs inside. I also used green sprinkles around the nest as decoration. To complete the bird nest look, you can top each dirt cup with a marshmallow peep. These adorable Bird Nest Dirt Cake Cups are the perfect dessert to celebrate Spring.
