It is My Son’s Birthday. When asked what Birthday Dessert He would like, he automatically Responded “Dirt Cake”. He’s 25 today. And He wanted a Matchbox Truck on top. (Kids! LOL) I first made this Cake 25 years ago for my then 5 year old Daughter.( Who is now 30) I still have the Clear Planter Pot. I went so far as to buy a spray of fake flowers, wrapped the stems is a Ziploc Bag and stuck it in the middle of the Pot. She fussed around asking where her Cake was, My brother got a big spoon and walked over to the table & told her “Right Here”, she proceeded to tell him he was being silly, til my brother spooned out a big bite & ate it. She was yelling,” Mommie did you see that? Uncle Joey is eating Dirt!” Took us a while to convince her it was “Dirt Cake” She requests it every year for her Birthday Dessert.
I had enough left over to make Ramekins without the Gummie Worms, for those of us who just enjoy the pudding mix & Crushed Oreos.
So here is the Recipe:
8oz Cream Cheese Softened
2 small Instant Vanilla Pudding Pkgs
8oz Cool Whip Softened
2 lbs Oreo Cookies
Follow Directions on Vanilla Pudding pkgs in a big bowl, Set aside.
In a Food Processor, (or a Blender) Process Oreo’s til resemblance of well…Dirt. 🙂
Add Soften Cream Cheese to Pudding and mix well, then add Soften Cool whip, mix.
Now depending on what container you put it in… I started with Layer of Oreo first, but you could start w/Pudding then Oreo. Add Gummies in Pudding layer. And that’s it!
Hope you Have Fun with this Recipe as we have with the Little Ones.
