Dirt & Worms Dessert

   I figured there’d be a few of you that wanted the recipe from Tylan’s birthday treat in the first post, so here it is!

This is a VERY popular dessert with my kiddos for their class treats at school, so we’ve made it several times.  I have tried many versions of this, some with butter, some with just pudding, but this one is by far the best we’ve tasted.  A nice creamy, but not too rich pudding, made by combining it with cream cheese and cool whip!

  • 1 package {15 Oz} Oreo Cookies
  • 16 ounces, weight Cool Whip , Thawed
  • 2 boxes (3.4 Oz. Each) Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3 cups Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • Gummy Worms

Preparation Instructions

Mix cool whip, softened cream cheese and powdered sugar. In a separate bowl, mix together milk and pudding mix, whipping until thickened. Stir them together and spread in the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
Crush Oreos in a food processor until fine crumbs remain, cover pudding completely. Tuck worms all over the surface.
Chill for a couple of hours before serving.
For fun, I’ve seen a clean garden trowel as the serving utensil and this served in clean, lined terra cotta pots.  Up to you how far you take this “theme.”
