Carrot Patch “Dirt” Cups

  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


These Carrot Patch “Dirt” Cups are made with an easy chocolate-avocado mousse, topped with crumbled Oreos, then topped with (naturally-colored) chocolate-covered strawberry “carrots”.  They’re the fun sweet treat for Spring!



Carrot Patch Dirt Cups

  • 1 batch chocolate-covered strawberry “carrots”
  • 1 batch chocolate avocado mousse “dirt”
  • 24 Oreos, crumbled

Chocolate Avocado Mousse “Dirt” Ingredients:

  • 3 large ripe avocados
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate, melted*
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry “Carrots” Ingredients:


  1. To Make The “Dirt”: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process for 1 minute, or until completely smooth.  If you would like a thinner mousse, feel free to add in a few extra tablespoons of almond milk.  Stir in about 2/3 of the crumbled Oreo mixture until combined, reserving the rest for the “dirt” topping.
  2. To Make The “Carrots”: Combine melted chocolate and food coloring together in a small bowl, and stir until your desired color is reached.  (Heads up — you’ll need more yellow than red food coloring!)  Then one by one, dip the strawberries in the chocolate until they are covered, and place them on a sheet of parchment paper to cool.  Once all of the strawberries have been dunked, use a fork (or transfer the remaining chocolate to a piping bag) to drizzle little carrot-like lines across the strawberries.  Let cool until the chocolate is completely hardened.
  3. To Assemble: Portion the “dirt” mousse mixture evenly between your serving cups.  Sprinkle the remaining crumbled Oreos evenly on top of each cup.  Then top with a “carrot”.
  4. Serve immediately…and enjoy!  Or if you’d like to prep these in advance, you can refrigerate the mousse mixture and the carrots in sealed containers for up to 2 days.  Then assemble just before serving.
