Dirt Cake Cups

This post is sponsored by Netflix as a member of their #StreamTeam.

The newest Netflix hit in our house is their new series called Dinotrux. Dustyn is a fan of dinosaurs and trucks right now, so I knew this would be a huge hit. We have already finished the 1st season and can not wait for more seasons. Of course we have been watching the episodes over again but this is one kid show I don’t mind watching. Watch the trailer below to see what the show is about.

To celebrate the new series I decided to make dirt cake cups. These were delicious and super easy to make. Dustyn was so excited to enjoy this after his scavenger hunt after school the other day.

Of course he enjoyed these dirt cake cups while watching Dinotrux. What could be more perfect?

I was just chatting with a friend the other day about how awesome it is to have Netflix. I really don’t like letting the boys watch regular tv, because even though the show might be okay for them to watch the commercials are mostly bad, or trying to sell you stuff they don’t need.

    My daughter is still too young for TV — she’s 6-months-old, but I look forward to showing her shows like this when the time comes. And I look forward to whipping up some Dirt Cake Cups of our own. Such a fun dessert to make that kids will love!
