Dirt Pudding


1 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 small boxes Jell-O chocolate or
vanilla instant pudding mix
3 1/2 cups milk
8 oz. Cool Whip
1 pack Oreos, crushed

In a medium bowl, whisk together the two pudding mixes and the milk and sit in the refrigerator. With a mixer, cream together the cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Add the pudding mixture to it and blend well. Fold in the Cool Whip and crushed Oreos and refrigerate.

This is my son’s favorite dessert. It’s on his list of food that he knows all he has to do is ask his Grandma to make it for him and she will. She puts it in a clear glass flower pot bowl and decorates it for him with gummy worms. When I make it, I put it in whatever I can find. And it’s equally delicious. Not as fun, but I guess that’s what Grandmas are for. It can be made with either chocolate or vanilla pudding mix, but we prefer it with vanilla.
