Graveyard Dirt Cake
This is our first post for Halloween this year. Look for more holiday themed recipes later this week. The pictures for this were really cute. The name cake is a little misleading, it is more of a pudding, I ate it with a spoon. I liked that this was really themed without being too elaborate.
This idea comes from Lil Luna.
-1 package Halloween Oreos
-8 oz. cream cheese
-1 cup powdered sugar
-1 large container cool whip
-1/2 cup butter or margarine
-2 boxes vanilla pudding
-3 cups milk
-1 tsp. vanilla
-candy corn pumpkins
|Layer the bottom of the pan with crushed Oreos.|
Save some though for the top.
I used the orange Halloween ones.
|First beat the cream cheese and butter with a mixer.|
Then fold in all the other cake ingredients.
|Spread over the Oreo crust.|
Sprinkle with more crushed Oreos.
|Decorate with pumpkins and tombstone cookies.|
I didn't put the pumpkin candies on until right before I took the pictures and served this, I think that was a good choice because a few hours later a lot of the orange had melted into the cake and turned it orange. I thought the orange Oreos looked good on top, and the cookies were easy to make this look like a graveyard.
