Dirt Cake, Dig In!

Little Man's birthday week festivities are in full swing! Because our family and friends are spread from hither to yonder (yep, that's a real thing), his celebration ends up spanning a ten day period. I hear no one complaining...especially not him!

One of his favorite traditions is Aunt Rekah's special birthday cake. Every year, she creates a treat that makes him momentarily (and rarely) speechless! It's lovely...and the cake is great too. Ha!

This par-tay was no different!With his new interest in bugs, Sista rolled out a first-class dirt cake...ADORNED WITH THE BIGGEST CREEPY CRAWLERS I've ever seen. Eeek!

 Those better not end up in my bed later.

Needless to say, he was a happy...happy boy.

For the first time, I found myself saying..."Let them eat dirt"!  

Another successful culinary creation! Thank you, Aunt Rekah!

Dirt Cake
1 box instant chocolate pudding mix (I used Sugar Free/Fat Free)
2 cups milk, to prepare pudding
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
8 oz cream cheese (I used Neufchatel), room temperature
8 oz Cool Whip (I used Lite), thawed
18 oz package of Oreo cookies
Directions:Mix chocolate pudding according to directions and place in fridge.
Chop up all Oreos in food processor.
Beat sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, and Cool Whip until well mixed.
Cover bottom of 9x13 glass pan with layer of half the Oreos. Layer with chocolate pudding. Cover with cream mix. Layer remaining Oreo mixture on top.

Decorate with gummy worms, bugs, flowers, etc.

Refrigerate for about 20 minutes or until ready to serve.
Dig in! Literally. Ha!
