Okay, I realize this isn’t anything new, but I just wanted to post the recipe for Dirt Cake anyway! It’s so easy and fun, and the kiddos love it! Best of all it only takes about 10 minutes to whip together, great for a last minute dessert!

Ingredients:

  • 1 small pkg vanilla pudding
  • 1/4 c. softened butter
  • 1 – 8 oz. package cream cheese
  • 1 c. confectioners sugar
  • 3 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 – 12 oz. container frozen whipped topping thawed
  • 32 oz. chocolate sandwich cookies with crème filling (Oreos)
  • Optional: Gummy worms!

Directions:

  1. Finely chop cookies in food processor, or put in Ziploc bag and bang around with a rolling pin until well crumbled!
  2. Mix butter, cream cheese, and sugar in bowl and set aside.
  3. In large bowl mix milk, pudding, and whipped topping together.
  4. Add cream cheese mixture to pudding mixture, combine well.
  5. Layer ingredients in flower pot or large bowl starting with cookies, then cream mixture. Repeat layers ending with cookie mixture so cake looks like it’s covered in dirt.
  6. Optional: add gummy worms or artificial flower and trowel and serve!

 

Enjoy!

    What kind of pudding and how much? The recipe ingredients don’t say:)

      Use instant pudding and the small boxes are 4 servings. I think the weight is 4oz or less. The recipe calls for vanilla, but I’ve always used chocolate. 🙂

    So excited to try this, but like Brenday, I was wondering about the pudding 🙂

    This looks delicious – but what is whipped topping? Is that simply cake frosting/icing or is that whipped cream? I haven’t heard of it before 🙂

      @Jade, whipped topping is known by the brand name of Cool Whip. It is generally a non dairy whipped topping and found in the frozen section in a tub type container instead of whipped cream which is in an aerosal type can in the refridgerated section. HTH
