Aunt Tiny’s Dirt Cake

This gooey dessert is assembled in a flowerpot.
Serve it with a garden trowel and a smile!

    Mix these things together:
  • 1/4 cup softened margarine
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
    Combine these things:
  • 12 oz Cool Whip
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 packages French Vanilla instant pudding

and mix them with the first three ingredients.

Take one large package of Oreo cookies – crush most of them with the centers left in.
Save out a 4 or 5 cookies, unscrew them, remove the middle, and crush to use for the top ‘dirt’.
Optional: 8 or 10 Gummi Worms. Highly recommended.

Alternate layer of pudding mixture and crushed oreos in a clean 8” flowerpot.
Put a bit of plastic wrap over the hole at the bottom.
Add a few Gummi Worms along with the layers.
Put the Oreo crumbs on the top.
Let this set up in the refrigerator for a few hours.

To serve: Stick a few colorful plastic flowers into the pot and add a few more gummy worms to the top for good measure.
Serve with a garden trowel.

This recipe is from my Aunt Tiny Westedt. She had a way of making our Wisconsin family gatherings fun. Thanks to Dana Westedt for reminding me to include the Gummi Worms.
