Dirt Cake

Pin It

Fun to decorate for Fall or Halloween

1 pound Oreo Cookies
12 oz. Cream cheese, softened
4 cups Longmont Dairy Milk
3 small packages instant vanilla pudding mix
12 oz. Longmont Dairy Whipping Cream—whipped until moderately firm
8 clear plastic party cups, 6-10 ounce size
8 gummy worm candies

Whip the cream and chill. Freeze, then grind the cookies in a food processor or blender until they look like dirt.

In a bowl, thin the cream cheese with a small part of the milk, mixing until smooth. Add the rest of the milk, mix, then add the pudding and beat until smooth, around 3 minutes. Fold in the whipped cream.

To assemble, spoon 1 tablespoon of the crumbs into each cup. Carefully spoon 1/2 of the pudding mixture into the cups, then follow with a layer of crumbs. Add balance of pudding mixture to cups and sprinkle the rest of the crumbs on top. Serve within 3 to 4 hours. Before serving, place a gummy worm in each cup. The mixture can also be built in a large, glass bowl or glass baking dish and decorated as a graveyard for Halloween.
