Dirt Cake

Nope, I didn’t just start gardening. This is where I used the chocolate pudding I made yesterday. Good ol’ Dirt Cake ….. just in time for Halloween! This is a great conversation piece on your food table ,I tell ya..

I was planning to make this in little pots for single serving but I wasn’t able to find a pot to my liking. They are either too small or too big …or too dirty! I was shopping for pots at a plant/garden store, after all. Well, If you don’t want to make this in pots, I suggest a wheelbarrow, a garden trowel, or a kid’s pail and shovel set.

I know the cake-thing on the name of this recipe is intimidating but  this is really a no-bake recipe and is fairly easy to do. 30- 45 minutes tops. Other versions of this may take longer to do because of the addition of other ingredients such as cream cheese and butter to enhance the flavor.

Ready to eat dirt? Then here’s the recipe…

Ingredients:
gummy worms
oreo cookies, crushed
chocolate pudding
whipped cream [optional]

you can also use other  items like: candy rocks and artificial flowers to emphasize the garden effect.

Directions:

  • If you are using a flower pot, make sure it is washed and dried. Put aluminum foil on the inner part of the pot so your cake won’t leak out of the little drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.
  • Oreo cookies can be crushed using food processor or can be manually crushed using mortar and pestle.
  • In a bowl, mix pudding and whipped topping.
  • It’s good to start with oreo and end with the oreo. Layer it in the pot. Oreo- Pudding-Oreo.
  • Repeat layers and chill until ready to serve.
  • Add gummy worms before serving.
Happy Halloween everyone!
