This is my husband's and son favorite dessert. For my son's birthday he did not want a cake, just dirt pudding.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Dirt pudding recipes are everywhere... we loved this one because it uses real whipped cream rather than whipped topping. That, along with vanilla pudding, makes this simple dessert very rich and creamy. It adds some flavor too. This is a perfect dessert for any occasion and will disappear quickly. The hardest part is waiting for the no-bake dessert to chill!
