We love our themed posts, especially for back to school because they’re reminiscent of our younger days (check out our previous post on Pencil Themed Back to School Snack Ideas)! One theme we couldn’t wait to blog about for BTS is apples. It used to be tradition to bring an apple on the first day of school for the teacher. That soon evolved to other back to school gifts, but apples always made an appearance in the classroom.
In today’s post, we’re going to bring back the BTS apple idea, but with a twist! Instead of real apples, we’re going to share some fun apple themed food ideas for back to school, perfect for students and teachers!

Pencils are a definite necessity for back to school supplies. Without pencils, how can we write and do homework? So to show our appreciation for this essential writing instrument, we’re sharing some fun pencil themed food and snack ideas for back to school!

One time at a spring themed party, we were surprised at what was on the dessert table. There were little cups of dirt, that people were eating! Turns out, it wasn’t dirt, but a yummy dessert called dirt cake. It’s made to look like a potted plant in the spring!
They’re actually quite easy to make, and not to mention delicious! We’re going to share with you a list of supplies to make your own at home! Serve them at your next spring party to entertain the guests!

Ingredients/Supplies – to make ~6 servings
- 8 oz of Oreos or chocolate sandwich cookies (1/2 a pack)
- 2 packs of vanilla pudding mix
- 2 1/4 cups of milk
- 8 oz of Cool Whip
- 6 oz of cream cheese
- 3 tbs of room temp butter
- gummy worms
Combine the cream cheese together with the butter. In another bowl, mix the vanilla pudding mix and milk together. Fold in the Cool Whip and the cream cheese mixture. Next, crumble the cookies (either crush by hand, blender, or a food processor) until it looks like dirt.
In a cup, put alternating layers of cookie crumbles and cream cheese mix, starting and ending with a cookie layer. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
You can substitute the vanilla pudding with chocolate pudding to make this extra chocolatey, or top it off with a gummy worm to make it more creepy crawly!
This quick and easy dessert is great to serve at your next springtime party. It’s also fun to make with kids! Let us know if you’ve had dirt cake before in the comments below!
