Who Wants Some Dirt?

No, I’m not talking about the soil that plants grow in.
No, I’m not talking about the scoop, gossip, or low-down type of dirt either.
I’m talking about the amazingly delicious dessert dirt. And no, not that horrendous chocolate-pudding-with-crushed-oreos-and-a-gummy-worm type of dirt that you were probably served in elementary school. I’m talking about the real deal. Oreo Dirt Trifle.
The recipe for this trifle was introduced to me by my Mom, who used to make it for almost every one of my birthdays ages 5-9. It’s ridiculously good. A sugar bomb and not healthy in any way, but incredibly tasty nonetheless.
Memories of this childhood trifle flooded back to me earlier this week when my Mom approached me about my birthday menu requests. Nachos, BBQ chicken pizza, Cake Batter Cheesecake Bars, and some Dirt, please!
Oreo Dirt Trifle
- 1 ½ (18 ounce) packages Oreos, well-crushed (I don’t recommend using Double Stuf.)
- ½ stick butter, softened
- 1 block (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 2 (4 ounce) boxes instant vanilla pudding
- 1 (12 ounce) container Cool Whip
- In a large bowl, cream together butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the dry pudding mix with the milk and Cool Whip. Stir in the butter mixture.
- In a trifle dish, alternate layers of pudding and crushed cookies, finishing with cookies on top. Refridgerate for at least 1 hour and serve.
Yield: ~12 servings
