Who doesn’t love DIRT PUDDING?! This recipe is made vegan and dairy-free using avocados, cocoa powder, maple syrup and non-dairy milk. And we’re topping them off with STRAWBERRY GHOSTS! This recipe is paleo-friendly and vegan-friendly using your favorite candies and vegan white chocolate.



Dirt Pudding:

  • 4 ripe medium avocados, pitted and fleshed
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup* (or honey)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used cashew)
  • 8 chocolate cream sandwich cookies** (dairy-free or gluten-free if needed)

Strawberry Ghosts:

  • 1 quart strawberries, washed and dried – keep stems
  • 10 oz dairy-free white chocolate
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 TBS dairy-free dark chocolate chips
  • toothpick
  • baking sheet and parchment paper or silicone

Extra Toppings:

  • gummy worms
  • pumpkin candies


Lay out all ingredients needed, including jars and toppings for easy assembly. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat; set aside. Read through all instructions first before starting. 

  1. Make the Dirt Pudding:
    • In a small food processor bowl or blender cup add avocado, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and milk. Blend ingredients until smooth – you may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl or cup a couple of times with a spatula.
    • Evenly disperse dirt pudding into 6 jars or cups – use 2oz plastic shooter glasses if serving a crowd.
    • Rinse and wipe clean the pudding blender cup.
    • Process chocolate cream sandwich cookies for “dirt”. Once the cookies have processed into crumbs, evenly distribute on top of pudding.
  2. Make the strawberry ghosts:
    • Melt white chocolate and coconut oil in medium microwave-safe bowl on half power, about 15 second increments stirring in between until chocolate is fully melted. Set aside.
    • Melt the dark chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl in 10 second increments stirring in between until fully melted.
    • Carefully dip the strawberries into the bowl of white chocolate until fully covered, then lay on lined baking sheet. Repeat this process with the rest of the strawberries.
    • Once white chocolate has dried, dip toothpick into dark chocolate and dot on eyes and mouth. Let dry completely, about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Add toppings to dirt pudding:
    • Add gummy worms, pumpkin candies, strawberry ghosts and other spooky candies you’d like to the dirt pudding.
    • Store in fridge until ready to serve
    • Enjoy these spooky treats!


*May sub honey, or even half honey-half maple syrup. If you’re not a fan of maple syrup, I would go for agave or honey and adjust measurement to desired sweetness.

**If looking for paleo option, try these.
