Dirt Cake

Dirt cake is one of my favorite desserts. Brings back memories of childhood when I played softball in a summer league. Every summer we would have a end of season banquet to pass out trophies and to have a cook out. One of the mother's would always being dirt cake.  It was always the hit of the cook out. The recipe below has been doubled since I am using a large flower pot. If you want to use a smaller potion please half all the ingredients.

In a large bowl mix two (16oz) packages of cream cheese, half a cup of butter, and two cups of powdered sugar together. Note: Make sure to use a large bowl. Also I used a mixer when mixing all the ingredients together and it flew things everywhere. I found that if I used a spoon first to mix and then use the mixer that it worked better.

In a separate large bowl mix 16oz. container of whipped topping, four small packages of instant french vanilla pudding, and seven cups of milk together. 

Note: Make sure to use two bowls to mix the ingredients together and then pour together into a large bowl. I had a tough time mixing. I need to buy a larger bowl. 

Combine both mixtures together until smooth.

Crumble Oreos in food processor or roll with a rolling pin. I used two large packages of Oreos. 

Note: When I make this recipe again and if I use the same size container I would use three packages or Oreos.

If you decide to use a clean flower pot, line it with tin foil for added protection.

Layer the Oreos and pudding mixture to the top beginning and ending with Oreos. 

Chill for several hours or overnight. Decorate with gummy worms, silk flowers, or 
construction toys. You will be sure to be the hit of your Memorial Day BBQ.
