Creepy Dirt Cups – Tasty Halloween Treats
Making these yummy Dirt Cups today made me miss my little boy. He is all grown up now and living on his own. I remember making stuff like these as well as Harry Potter Frogs, and many others that I can’t even remember. Now the one thing I will say about these cups, the recipe will tell you it should make 10. Well I doubled the recipe and I was only able to make 6 cups. My cups are 8 oz cups as I’m making for adults and they are already all gone. lol.
These cookies are my weakness, so if you are anything like me, you might want to get the big bag. A cookie for me, a cookie in the grinder etc.. I’m sure you get the picture.

The “Oreo Biscuit” was first developed and produced by the National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco) in 1912 at its Chelsea, Manhattan factory in the current-day Chelsea Market complex, located on Ninth Avenue between 15th and 16th Streets. Today, this same block of Ninth Avenue is known as “Oreo Way.” The name was first trademarked on March 14, 1912. It was launched as an imitation of the Hydrox cookie manufactured by Sunshine company, introduced in 1908.
The original design of the cookie featured a wreath around the edge of the cookie and the name “OREO” in the center. In the United States, they were sold for 25 cents a pound (453 g) in novelty cans with clear glass tops. The first Oreo was sold on March 6, 1912, to a grocer in Hoboken, New Jersey.
The Oreo Biscuit was renamed in 1921, to “Oreo Sandwich.” A new design for the cookie was introduced in 1924. A lemon-filled variety was available briefly during the 1920s, but was discontinued. In 1948, the Oreo Sandwich was renamed the “Oreo Creme’ Sandwich”; it was changed in 1974 to the Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie. The modern-day design was developed in 1952 by William A. Turnier, to include the Nabisco logo.
