What better dessert after a busy morning in the dirt than Dirt? This has always brought forth lots of chuckles when I have made it in the past.
|Complete with worms!|
8-inch plastic flower pot
Tacky plastic flowers
20-oz. Oreo cookies
1/2 stick butter
1 (8-oz.) cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
3 1/2 cups milk
2 small packages instant vanilla pudding
12-oz. Cool Whip
- Crush Oreo cookies; cream butter, powdered sugar, and cream cheese. in another bowl, mix milk and pudding. mix well, then add Cool Whip. After mixing, add creamed mixture. Tape Saran Wrap under the hole in the flower pot.
- Put layer of crushed cookies in pot, then layer of pudding mix and continue to layer with last layer being cookies. Be sure cookie mix covers all of top to look like "dirt." Wrap Saran Wrap around some tacky flowers and insert in top of cake. Ask if anyone wants a spoonful of dirt and serve with garden spatula.
I have made this in previous years using vanilla sandwich cookies and called it "Sand." The gummy worms always seem to be lots of fun, especially for children. For a number of years this was City Girl's favorite dessert. It can be made with a blend of chocolate and vanilla instant pudding, if that seems to be in order. It was certainly a big hit here over the week-end.:-)
I am happy to report that our potatoes are breaking through the ground. They were planted on the first Friday in April.
