  1. This always looks so good! In a funny way, of course! 🙂 I love oreos and cream cheese!

    Thanks! Check out my dessert! You won't be disappointed!

  2. Yummy!!! On the 4th of July..I made the Duggars Layered Ice cream cake. It was my son's first birthday…so I had to try it out ;).

    Will have to make a dirt cake sometime. Looks yummy and fun for the kids to participate in!

  3. Hi Courtney,
    I used to love this cake and had forgotten about it. My girls, even though they are now 15 and 13…will be crazy about it too so thank you for posting the recipe! We kind of need a treat to dig into…I was just told 5 days ago I have MS so we are staying close, staying strong, praying…and finding little ways to make us smile…and your cake will do that!

  4. Thanks, Courtney! I'm going to save this for when we do "G" week with my preschooler! 🙂 (for garden) 😉

  5. I’ve never done this, seen others do it through the years….my 16 has missed out, but now that we have a 2 year old also…I think it’s time to get dirty and make this one 🙂 Thanks!!

  6. I make a very similar dessert in a trifle dish, but I use vanilla pudding, 3 1/2 cups milk and only one package of oreos. It has white and black layers, very cool.

  7. “Thing,” not “Think.” My eyes are at a point where I need my glasses, the regular ones, to see far away and another pair to see up close. Right now I’m refusing to get the ones for up close or a dual.
