Dirt Cake

    •  1 bag Oreo cookies
    • 1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine
    • 1 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
    • 2 boxes instant vanilla pudding ( 4 serving size)
    • 2 cups milk
    • 1 (8 ounce) containers Cool Whip
    • 8 inches flower pot
    • artificial flower
My daughter brought two pots of this to a family dinner, and we couldn't stop laughing. Delicious!
  1. Crush the Oreo cookies in a blender or food processor; set aside.
  2. Cream together butter or margarine and cream cheese.
  3. In a large bowl, mix 2 large boxes of vanilla instant pudding (add amount of milk according to package of pudding).
  4. Add cream cheese mixture and 8 ounces of Cool Whip.
  5. Beat together until mixed.
  6. In an 8 inch flower pot, layer the cookie mixture, the pudding mixture, the cookie mixture, and so on.
  7. End up with the cookie mixture (this looks like dirt).
  8. Add an artificial flower on top.

My mother-in-law used to make an ice cream version of this as part of Christmas dinner every year. Very easy & I think would be a great summer treat. Substitute vanilla ice cream for the pudding mixture and put back in freezer until ready to serve. You can also crush those nabisco chocolate wafers for the top layer of dirt.
