Must Have for Cookouts- Dirt Cake

This cake is a cookout must! It's somewhat light, due to the whipped cream, and has just enough chocolate! It makes a great finished after a couple of hot dogs, chips, potato salad, and who knows what else.

Some people make it in a pan, others make it in a small plastic bucket and add a plastic shovel.

Dirt Cake
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons margarine, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 boxes instant vanilla pudding mix
3 1/2 cups milk
12 ounces Cool Whip, thawed
1 package Oreo cookies, crushed

gummy worms (optional)


Cream together the cream cheese, margarine and sugar. Mix together pudding, milk and Cool Whip. Combine chocolate mixture with creamed mixture. Stir well.

In a clean flowerpot, layer mixture with crushed Oreo cookies, ending with cookies on top. Add gummy worms or silk flowers on top. Also, if made in a plastic bucket, include a shovel for serving.

Enjoy! :)
