Fall into Flavor Finale

This is the last week of
Linda's Fall into Flavor Recipe exchange. Please check her site out for all of the participants!
This week my recipe is really simple but oh so yummy and fun!

"DIRT"

Ingredients:
20 oz. Oreo Cookies, crushed
8 oz. Cream Cheese
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 small Instant Vanilla Pudding
3 1/2 cups Milk
12 oz. Cool Whip

Mix all ingredients together. That's it, that simple!
The fun part is that in does resemble dirt! So put it in a plastic pot (that doesn't have any holes) and stick a fake flower, such as a Gerber daisy, in it and serve. It is a great conversation starter when you show up at a party with a present for the host that they can eat and admire all at the same time :)

Mmmmmmmm....gotta try this one. How come MY recipe on my blog was right next to a google ad about fat and flat stomachs?!? Oh, the shame!

I love making this. The last time I made it was for a family who had several kids. They loved it! I added gummy worms (don't like them myself, but kids seem to!). Thanks for sharing a fun recipe!

Even though your dessert is a family favorite, I didn't have a recipe for it until now. My sister-in-law is always the one who makes it for the in-law family gatherings.

Now I can make it for my side of the family get togethers. Thanks!

Oooo, I remember having "Dirt" at a family camp one time. The kids just loved it! They had put gummy worms in so every once in a while the kids would find a "treasure". hahaha

I wondered how it was made. Now I know! Thanks so much for sharing :-)
