Recipe from "The Sometimes Single Mom"...

Are you guys enjoying all these posts?!? I think this is one, you won't want to miss...

This past summer, I participated in a fun "Summer Swap" on another blog, and I was paired up with an awesome military wife, Bonnie... from "The Sometimes Single Mom". It was such a fun treat to receive her package in the mail, and we've been in touch since. Today, she's sharing a recipe for a dessert with us. I've heard of Dirt Cakes before, but have never created one... and this recipe looks super delicious, and super easy...which is my kind of recipe.

1 pack of oreos (20 oz)
1/4 cup butter softened
1 8oz package of cream cheese softened
1 cup powdered sugar (also known as confectioners sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3.9 oz package of instant vanilla pudding mix
1 3.9 oz package of chocolate pudding mix
3 cups milk
1 12 oz container whipped topping (thawed)

1- Smash your cookies!! It works easiest if you put them in a big ziplock bag and just smash away.
2- Combine butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat on low then beat medium. Add chocolate pudding
with milk to a bowl, beat on low.
3- Fold whipped topping into pudding mixture with rubber spatchula.
4- Mix vanilla pudding and chocolate pudding/whipped topping mixture
5- Assemble in ungreased 9x13 pan in layers
1. cookie
2. pudding
3. cookie
4. pudding
and so on and so forth until no pudding mix or cookie is left

Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.

Thanks Bonnie, for what sounds to be, a YUMMY dessert recipe!! Here's what I'm thinking dear friends... in just a few days it will be Halloween... wouldn't it be fun to make a dirt cake, and decorate the top like a graveyard?! Yes, it's been done before... just looked it up in flickr...and here's a picture to prove it! Enjoy...and happy "non-baking" to you!

Pin It!
