Dirt Cake

1 (20 oz) package of Oreo cookies

1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened

4 tablespoons margarine softened

1 cup powdered sugar

2 (6 serving size) vanilla pudding mixes

3 1/2 cups of milk

1 (12 oz) carton of frozen whipped topping, thawed

Crush cookies including centers in a blender or food processor until the mixture resembles dirt.  Set aside.  Cream together: cream cheese, margarine and powdered sugar.  Mix pudding mixes and milk 1 to 2 minutes until well blended.  Fold pudding mixture into cream cheese mixture with a rubber spatula.  Fold in whipped topping.  In a 8-10” flower pot, alternate layers of cookie crumbs and pudding cream, ending with cookie dirt.  Chill several hours or overnight before serving.  Decorate with gummy worms or plastic flowers.  Serve with plastic sand pail shovel.  If you are using a clay or ceramic flower pot, line it with foil.  A 9×13 pan can be used instead of a flower pot.

This has been Colby’s birthday cake more times than I can count.  We used to put gummy worms in it to add to the dirt theme.  However, the general consensus was that they were speed bumps to eating it.  We take our dirt cake seriously.
