Dirt Cake



Dirt Cake

I call this a dirt cake because it looks like dirt but others have called it the Mississipi Mud Pie. This can be a fun dessert to serve if you place it in a clean planter you can display some silk flowers in it as a centerpeice. The dessert will be hidden under the noses of the guests. But as soon as it is dicovered it won't hang around long. Now if you want to have a little more fun for a children's party plant some gummy worms in the bottom for a surrpise in the dirt.

 

Do not cheat on the ingredients to save money. Use the name brand products I suggest for the cookies, the cream cheese and the whipped topping. I have tried others and it just does not turn out the same. With the pudding make sure you have INSTANT pudding. If you use the Bake and Serve you will have to completely cool the pudding before you can put it together with the whipped topping or you will melt the topping. This dish cannot be made too much in advance or the cookies become mushy. Preparation the night before use is fine. It will keep not more than 3 days.

Dirt Cake

NOTE: This dish could be served in a clean planters pot and have silk flowers set in it to be used as a table decoration. I did this once for a church picknick. Nobody knew it was edible until I started spooing some out. Nice surprise dessert.

 

Variation: Since it does look like dirt you could even hide some gummy worms in the dirt that will be discovered by the consumers of this dish. I don't really like to do that but it was fun as a joke for a children's party.
