My son who just turned 14 requested Oreo Dirt Cake for his birthday dinner dessert. Since he made it for me last Mother’s Day I thought I would return the favor and honor his wishes!
Little did I know I would be taking enough liberties with the recipe that I wanted to post about the changes I made (and show you a much better picture!)
The printable recipe is below but I”ll tell you what I did differently from the earlier recipe.
I used chocolate pudding this time instead of vanilla (your preference).
Instead of mixing the butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar in one bowl and the pudding mix, milk and whipped topping in a separate one, I mixed them all in one bowl (according to the directions below).
I also used a 9×13 pan (either glass or metal is fine) instead of an 8 inch diameter bowl.
Take this dessert to your favorite potluck dinner, and you will love the compliments you receive!
