Dirt Cake Recipe

DIY, inexpensive crafts, dollar store, cheap

Let’s talk dirty — dirt cake dirty.

Hello, lovelies! I realize I have been posting more food related instructions then DIY crafts and that is only because I have been doing a lot of baking recently. And, of course, wanted to share that with all of you!

I am celebrated my birthday last night with my family and every year the birthday girl/boy gets to pick what kind of cake they want. This year I thought I wanted to bring back an old classic that is just as delicious as it is timeless, the dirt cake! This cake is so much fun to make and eat!

Everything you need to complete your dirt cake recipe

Get the good stuff:

8 oz. cream cheese (softened)

2 tablespoons butter

2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding

3 cups of milk

16 oz. Cool Whip

1 large pack of Oreos

Gummy worms, fake rocks, and gummy frogs

Plastic flower pot & garden tool*

*Make sure you clean everything before you use it.

This is how you get it done:

Use a food possessor to chop Oreos until they look like dirt

1. In a food processor, process Oreos until they look like dirt.

Mix together cream cheese and butter until they become one

2. Mix butter and cream cheese — use those muscles, girl!

3. In a separate bowl, mix the pudding and milk.

4. Mix both mixtures together with a hand mixer (wow, I said mix a lot) then fold in cool whip.

Placed a plastic lid on the bottom of he flower pot
I placed a plastic lid on the bottom of the flower pot to ensure the mixture would fill to the top.


5. In your flower pot create a nice thick layer of the Oreos on the bottom. Next, add pudding/cool whip mixture. Lastly, top with remaining Oreos and spread evenly.

6. Place gummy worms and other fun critters on top!

7. Serve with the gardening tool.
