Dirt Cake Recipe

Dirt Cake is fun to serve at family gatherings, or to give as a gift. I've also taken it to church dinners. It not only tastes good but is unique.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (15-1/2 ounces) Oreo cookies
  • 2 clean new plastic flower pots, about 6 inches in diameter
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Silk flowers, aluminum foil, gummy worms and clean new gardening tools, optional

Directions

  • 1. Crush cookies until they resemble potting soil. Divide half of the crumbs between the flower pots. Set pots and remaining crumbs aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. In another bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes (mixture will be thick). Fold in whipped topping. Gently fold into cream cheese mixture until blended.
  • 3. Add filling to pots; top with reserved crumbs. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. If desired, wrap silk flower stems in foil; add to flower pots. Decorate with gummy worms and display with gardening tools if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
