Let’s Make Dirt Cake

Dirt Cake is super easy! If you can open packages and stir, you can make this. The hardest thing about this recipe is remembering to take out the cool whip, cream cheese and margarine to soften before your ready to make it. I have forgotten a few times and you can always soften it in the microwave.

Dirt Cake is a delicious, creamy bite of heaven and this recipe is perfect for chocolate lovers.

Start by putting a package of Oreos in a gallon size bag and smash them with a rolling pin (this is fun and a great stress reliever). In a 13×9 pan put half of the bag of Oreos. Save the other half of the of the bag for topping the dirt cake.

The fun thing about dirt cake is you can change the taste by using different flavors of cool whip. I honestly thought I had bought two of the same kind of cool whips, but when I went to make it I realized I didn’t. So this dirt cake has one container of cookies n cream and one brownie flavored. Has that ever happened to you before? It taste amazing so this mishap worked out perfectly.

In a large separate bowl mix milk, vanilla, instant chocolate pudding.
