Another my family favorite is this wonderfully rich Dirt Cake Recipe. Serve this one at your next get-together and I can almost guarantee there won't be any leftovers..
Oreo Dirt Cake
- 1 lb. Oreo cookies
- 8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
- 3 Cups Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 12 oz. Container of Cool Whip
- 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 Small Packages of Vanilla or Chocolate Instant Pudding Mix
Crush half the package of Oreo cookies and spread in the bottom of a 9"x13" pan. Mix well the Cool Whip, softened cream cheese and powdered sugar. Pour this mixture over the cookies. Mix milk, pudding and vanilla. Pour pudding over mixture in the pan. Crush the remaining half package of Oreos and scatter them over the top of the cake. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. This cake is best if made the day before you are wanting to serve it.
This is optional, but if you want the dirt cake to look more "realistic", you may garnish the top with a few gummy worms scattered over the top. There are many other ways you could dress this up if you let your creativity flow. Enjoy!
