Dirt Cake! (lotsa pics)
Helloooo fellow foodies, man do I have a treat for you today!
For New Years I made my first dirt cake.
I decorated it using a pink theme, fake pink flowers and some pink tissue paper all around.
It looked so pretty, the next thing was to see if it was just as tasty.
The first people to try the cake were my annoying older brothers and when I saw them stop for a whole minute after taking a bite I knew it was a hit!
My brothers were very impressed with my lovely dessert, they loved it!
There is no doubt in my mind for it being one of my fave desserts.
I started out with a Martha Stewart recipe and made it my own along the way.
Here is the delicious recipe:
1 package Oreo cookies (16 ounces)
20 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
2 packages instant vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
2 cups Whipped Cream
1. If using a flowerpot with a drainage hole, reserve 1 cookie to place over hole to prevent leaking. Place remaining cookies in the bowl of a food processor. Process until mixture resembles dirt. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and butter, and stir until creamy. Set aside.
3. In another large bowl, whisk together instant-pudding mixes and milk; stir until well blended. Using a rubber spatula, fold pudding mixture into cream-cheese mixture. Fold in whipped cream.
4. In a flowerpot or bucket with a 5-quart capacity, alternate layers of cookie "dirt" and pudding mixture, starting and ending with cookie "dirt." Chill at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
Stick in some gummy worms if you like.
