Janelle from Comfy In the Kitchen is back with a  fun summer recipe!  She Writes:

Dirt pudding is so easy…so fun…so yummy! Adults and children alike enjoy this special dessert. You can dress it up with wormies, put it in a flower pot {or small pots like the ones shown above}, or simply serve it with the oreo “dirt” topping in a serving bowl. No matter the initial presentation, there will surely be a bowl licked clean in the end! Enjoy!

{This recipe can be multiplied to your desired amount}

*Oh, yes…I do enjoy making my own whipped cream but I am not offended by Cool-Whip once in a while. I know, I know. ;)

Whisk together pudding packages with milk and set aside in refrigerator.

Crush oreos by placing them in a large ziploc bag and pounding them with a mallet. Spread 1/2 of them down in the bottom of a pan {or whatever serving dish you desire}.

In another bowl, add butter, powdered sugar, and cream cheese.

Beat well.

Add cream cheese mixture to pudding and stir.

Fold in Cool-Whip

Layer onto crushed Oreos.

  1. This is just perfect timing – I had written down in our menu to make dirt pudding for my boys this weekend! I’ll be adapting your recipe, since we don’t have cool whip overseas.

  2. Janelle…this post is so timely; I made DIRT for a Botany homeschool class I taught some years ago and filled a plastic flower pot with the dessert and stuck plastic flowers in it to look like a flowerpot.

    This past weekend, I made ‘SAND’ for some dear friends who are moving to Florida this weekend. The ingredients are the same but the Oreos are replaced with Nilla Wafers or crushed graham cracker. I served it in a bright orange sand bucket and the serving spoon was a pink plastic shovel. We also had Nutter Butter cookies decorated the top of the cookie with icing andused licorice as ‘straps’ which made the cookies look like flip flops; my daughter partially decorated cupcakes with light blue icing, we stuck a little drink umbrella in the cupcake, and positioned two Teddy Graham crackers beneath the umbrella as though they were sitting on the beach. We decorated our walk way up to our front porch with beach balls, sun lotion, and sand toys, and blow-up palm trees. It was delightful.

  3. Yum! My 10 year old daughter, the dessert diva of our family, is ready to make this right now. She just said, “Mom, send me the recipe. I’m going to make those!”
