It's also fun presentation-wise....
It looks like a flower in a flower pot right?? Lots of fun. It's also really easy to make too. A little messy, but easy.
Here's the recipe.
Franni's Dirt Cake
ingredients: 1 package of Oreos, 1/2 cup butter (softened), 8 oz. of cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 packages of vanilla instant pudding, 3 cups of milk and 1 12 oz. container of cool whip
-crush oreos in the food processor. set aside.
-cream together butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar
-in another large mixing bowl mix the 2 packages of vanilla instant pudding, 3 cups of milk and cool whip
-combine with butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth
-begin to layer - start with cookies (i used a 1/4 cup) then the cream mixture (i used 1 cup) end with cookies
-if using a flower pot, don't forget to put wax paper in the bottom
-also, if making for a big group, don't be afraid to double the recipe - it goes fast!
I wish I would have made a double batch because I want some right now.........but, it's all gone.
Hope you enjoy :)
