Dirt Pudding

A fun and simple no bake dessert  that is layered with a creamy pudding and Oreo cookies.

This is family favorite dessert that my sister has been making forever. For real, forever

It is requested at nearly every family get together and she gets kinda creative with it. Serves it up in a flower pot and loads it with gummy worms. The kids think it's the best thing since sliced bread.  Me too!

 It's fab-u-lous.  Fabulous

Dirt Pudding

As you may of already guessed, this is not really dirt.  If you didn't guess that yet, well, um, it's not.  

It's crushed Oreo cookies layered with a pudding-whipped topping-cream cheese mixture and honestly, it is fabulous. This dessert also requires zero baking and can be served in a variety of ways.  

As mentioned, my sister always gets creative and serves it up in a flower pot dish with gummy worms.   Personally, I have never been that crafty, but, have served it different ways on different occasions.  An 9 x 13 baking dish will work or split it into 2- 8 in baking dishes, a large glass bowl, or like the photos, in individual cups. These cups are just a clear, plastic, 9 oz cup, but, you can get as fancy or simple as you like.  Totally versatile.

However you do decide to serve it, just be prepared to eat many servings. 😋
