Dirt Cake

Today I'm sharing my boys favorite dessert.  It's yummy and crunchy and creamy all at the same time.  It's super easy to make and it looks gross - which my boys ADORE!

Here's what you need (minus the milk and whipped cream) and I can't get this picture to turn for the life of me!

I really think Mason may end up being a chef one day... he LOOOOOOOVES all things cooking and about 90% of the time he's playing some sort of "cooking" game with his imagination.  Whipping up pancakes, cookies, macaroni, etc. and having us sample.  He wanted to be my "big helper" when I made this so there was lots of sampling, tasting and licking :)

First thing I do is crush up an entire package of Oreos in my food processor.  You could also smash them up in a ziploc bag, but I like using the food processor because it's quick and easy and makes a really fine "dirt".

Next... I soften the cream cheese and margarine and mix them together.  Throw in 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and mix it all together.

Next combine 3 1/2 cups milk with the two packages of pudding.

After the pudding is all mixed together, fold in the two tubs of whipped cream.

And then mix in the cream cheese/powdered sugar mixture.

Last, I layer the pudding mixture with the cookie "dirt" and then usually will top it all off with some gummy worms. 

This keeps great in the fridge and is super fun for the kiddos to make with you! ENJOY!


  1. Oh my goodness! Mason in the kitchen just makes my heart happy! I loooooove that kid!

  2. Yummy!! Love this stuff, but have never tried to make it myself! May have to remedy that with your recipe!! :-)

  3. I love dirt cake! I had a friend growing up who always had dirt cake for her birthday cake. I'm waiting for my daughter to get a little bigger to enjoy it (maybe for her second birthday party!).
