Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

2 pkg
cream cheese (8 oz each)
1 c
margarine
2 c
powdered sugar
4 pkg
french vanilla instant pudding (3 oz each)
7 c
cold milk
2 pkg
cool whip (12 oz each)
2 pkg
chocolate oreos (with white filling)

How to Make Dirt Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1At room temperature mix the cream cheese, margarine, powdered sugar together.
  • 2In a separate bowl, beat until thickened, pudding and milk.
  • 3Then fold in Cool Whip and mix with cream cheese mixture.
  • 4Crush the Oreos using a food processor (easiest way I've found to do it)
  • 5make several layers, of the Oreos and then the cream cheese mixture in either 2 new flowerpots, or several individual plastic desert cups. Add Gummy worms and/or creepy crawlies into the layers and on the top of the mix. You can leave it as is, or put a small garden tool in the pot to use for serving. I take this a lot to bridal showers and baby showers, and make it elegant by using a decorated flower pot with pretty artificial flowers stuck into it. If you do this make sure you let everyone know that it's a desert, as it tends to look a little too real in presentation.
