I was a skeptic, but now I love Dirt Cake! Or as my husband usually calls it, mud pie. I used to think this dessert was just like chocolate pudding with some crumbled cookies. But at least with this recipe it is soooo good.
1.5 package of Oreo Cookies
1 (8 oz.) package of Cream Cheese
1/2 C. Butter, softened
1 C. Powdered Sugar
3 C. Milk
1 (12 oz.) tub of Whip Cream
2 (3 ½ oz.) packages of Instant Pudding, chocolate or vanilla
1/2 t. Vanilla
- Crush all the Oreo Cookies and set aside.
- Mix together the butter, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Set aside
- Mix together the pudding and the milk. Then fold together the cream cheese mixture and the pudding. Add the whip cream to the mixture.
- Layer the crushed cookies, and the pudding mixture starting with the cookies. 3 layers of cookies and 2 layers of the pudding mixture.
*You can add gummy worms to the top layer of oreos to make it fun for kids. You can also put it in a new, clean flower pot and stuff a fake flower down in the middle of the “dirt”.
