  1. Crush Oreos into very small pieces. You can do this in a food processor or by placing them in a Ziploc bag and crushing them with a rolling pin or the flat side of a meat mallet. (The heel of your shoe might even work. JK)
  2. Place crushed Oreos into the serving cups, enough to cover the bottom.
  3. In a bowl, mix cream cheese and margarine until creamy.
  4. In a different bowl, whisk the pudding mix and milk together. Whisk the powdered sugar and then the Cool Whip into this mixture.
  5. Add the pudding mixture into the bowl with the cream cheese and margarine. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Pour or spoon the mixture into the cups you fixed earlier. Fill to about 1/2″ from the top.
  7. Sprinkle the top of the cups with more crushed Oreos. Add a few gummy worms to the top.
Recipe Notes

You can also make Sand Cake Cups using this recipe.  Simply swap the regular Oreos for the vanilla version, use vanilla pudding mix, and add an umbrella for a beach/sand/ocean themed party or occasion.
