Dirt cake is easy to make, fun to eat and is perfect for Spring.
Dirt cake might possibly be the ultimate Spring dessert. I mean, eating a dessert that looks like soil and is complete with worms? Count me in. And you KNOW the kids are in too. This treat was a favorite of mine when I was a kid but I never knew how to make it until now.

Spring Dirt Cake
- Oreo cookies
- 2 packages 3.4 oz. each Jello instant vanilla pudding
- 1 cup powdered sugar confectioner's sugar
- 3 cups milk
- 8 oz. cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 12 oz. whipped topping Cool Whip
- Gummy worms
Crush the Oreos in a plastic bag
In a bowl, blend the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together on medium speed until light and fluffy
In a separate bowl, whisk the pudding and milk together for two minutes. Fold in the whipped topping
Blend the pudding mixture into the cream cheese mixture and combine well
Place a layer of cookie crumbs into each terra cotta pot. Place a layer of pudding mixture on top
Continue to layer mixture and cookies, ending with the cookies on top.
Place in fridge for a few hours to set.
Add gummy worms to the top
You can put the cake into any container but I I think that it is super cute in terra cotta pots. You just want to make sure that you line the pots with plastic wrap first so the cake isn’t touching the pot. The pots that I used were about 6″ in diameter.
This recipe is perfect for anything Spring related. Think garden party, Mother’s Day, kid’s birthday party, even brunch.
I’m so in love with the flower toppers. They add the perfect touch don’t you think?
