Dirt Cake

Saturday, September 27, 2008

This is my tried and true dirt cake recipe. I used to make it all the time when we lived closer to our good friends Joey and Corrine because it was Corrine’s favorite. This is a yummy dessert for adults, not just kids! Abbott and I decided to to make it for his birthday this year; we used lots of gummy worms and chocolate rocks and everyone enjoyed it (especially the party boys).

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix
3 1/2 cups milk
1 (10 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (32 ounces) packages of Oreos

Chop cookies very fine in food processor (the white cream will disappear) and save for later. Mix butter, cream cheese, and sugar in bowl and set aside. In a large bowl mix the milk and pudding to thicken it then fold in the whipped cream and butter/cream cheese/sugar mixture. In a flower pot layer the cake starting with cookies and then the mousse. Repeat layers. For extra fun sprinkle in some chocolate rocks and gummy worms in the layers and on top! Chill the cake and serve!
