Dirt Cake

Note:  It is Earth Day so I wanted to find some recipe that complimented the day.    What says Earth Day more than Dirt Cake?     You even serve it in a flower pot!     OR if you are going to take these as treats to school, then make them in plastic cups and just put some gummi worms on top.    (See picture!  Borrowed from internet)

Dirt Cake

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
3 1/2 cups milk
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
32 ounces chocolate sandwich cookies with creme filling

Chop cookies very fine in food processor. The white cream will disappear.  Mix butter, cream cheese, and sugar in bowl. In a large bowl mix milk, pudding and whipped topping together. Combine pudding mixture and cream mixture together. Layer in flower pot, starting with cookies then cream mixture. Repeat layers. Chill until ready to serve.   

For effect, add a few gummi worms, artificial flower and trowel. Enjoy!
