Culinary Adventures with Bob and Al: Franni's Dirt Cake Recipe Revealed

My mom makes LOTS of good things. This is just one of them. I love it, my sister really loves it, my whole family loves it. Anyone who tries it loves it. It's super good. Especially in the summer because its cool. Not cool like Zach Morris, but cool like chilly, cold, brrrr. 

It's also fun presentation-wise....

there it was in all of it's glory at the office yesterday

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 :)
