"Dirt Cake"


I put that in parenthesis, because it's not actually made of dirt.
But so good! I made it last night for our potluck church gathering, and yum!
And so fun-looking for the kids.
Here you go...

8 oz. softened cream cheese
1/4 margarine, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 small pckg. instant vanilla pudding
1 small pckg. instant chocolate pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
12 oz. Cool Whip
20 oz. bag of Oreos or, if you're like me, "Twisters" HEB brand
1 pckg. of Gummi Worms

Mix cream cheese, margarine, and powdered sugar together. In another bowl, mix together the puddings and milk and let is set for five minutes until thick. (It needs to have that pudding consistency.) Combine, adding the Cool Whip in.
In a food processor, twist apart your Oreos, and pulse in your processor or blender until fine, looking like dirt.
Then, in whatever container you wish (like a flower pot lined with wax paper, a glass bowl, whatever) layer your Oreos, then pudding mixture, a few times, starting and ending with "dirt".
Sneak a few gummi worms into your layers, and also arrange a few on top.
You can also serve this in individual clear cups.

I make this at least once a year!! My family loves it! We have done mini flower pots, with gummy worms. Also, a large pot with flowers as a centerpiece.

I was wondering if you are going to post pumpkin recipes again?? I can't remember if that was you or Heather last year. I have one to share but am always looking for new ones.

Are you loving this weather? Happy Fall!
