Dirt Cake


  • 1 (20 ounce) package Oreos
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 12 ounces Cool Whip
  • 2 (3 1/2 ounce) boxes instant vanilla pudding
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Crush cookies to find crumbs in food processor. Set aside.
  2. Mix cream cheese, margarine and sugar. Fold in Cool Whip. Set aside.
  3. Mix pudding mixes, milk and vanilla extract. Stir pudding mixture into cream cheese mixture and mix well.
  4. In plastic flower pot alternate the cream cheese mixture and crumbs ending with the crumbs.
  5. Just before serving, decorate with a stem of silk flowers (and a gummi worm or 2). Serve with a garden trowel.

You can also make this a Sand Cake using vanilla cream cookies instead of the Oreos and assemble it in a child's beach bucket and serve with a sand shovel.
