Dirt Cake  

 

 

 

Ingredients
1 packet orea cookies.  
Put in food processor and sit aside.
Mix:
2 carton of cream cheese
1 1container of cool whip or whipped cream
1 cup confectioners sugar (castor or icing sugar)
2 large pkg of chocolate instant pudding mix
2 cups of milk
Gummy worms, and other sweets that look like they belong in the garden!!
 
Notes: Cool Whip is similar to Orley Whip (bought from Pick n Pay, etc in boxes, but still in the fridge)  It is like an 'artificial cream'.  You can use ordinary whipping cream too. You can leave ingredients out (except for the oreos - of course), you can add ingredients, you can replace ingredients with whatever suits your dietery requirements.  Your measurements do not have to be accurate either.  The nice thing about the Dirt Cake is that you cannot mess it up - it is a mess by itself :)  Use your initiative and make your own recipe.
 
Method
Begin with a small layer of oreo in the bottom of a huge pot. Layer of pudding mixture, layer of cookies, etc until all of mixture is gone. You will end with a layer of oreo.
If you want to make this more fun you can buy a flower pot and put the mixture in the pot. Begin with a small layer of oreo in the bottom of a flower pot. Layer of pudding mixture, layer of cookies, etc until all of mixture is gone. You will end with a layer of oreo. Top your dessert off with an artificial flower, or put gummy worms in the dirt.  If you want to do this for a kids birthday party you can buy all the kids little sea spades and they can make their dirt cake in a potting planter, or little buckets.
 
Another variation on the typical dirt cake recipe is to use crushed vanilla biscuits instead of chocolate cookies. Make the dirt cake in a beach pail instead of a flower pot, serve with a beach shovel, and you have a 'sand cake'. Great for kids' summer birthdays.
