Some recipes call for the addition of cream cheese or cool whip.  But our Oreo dirt pudding recipe is much simpler. This is the easiest way to make it and it’s totally delicious.

These little dirt cups are so much fun.  You can make one large dirt pudding in a trifle bowl, but I think they’re more cute when each one is in a separate bowl.  Some people even make them look like real flower pots, by putting each one in an individual real clay pot.  I think clear cups work really well though, because you can see the Oreo pudding cake better.

Optional Details

We added some cute details to our Oreo dirt pudding cups as the top layer.  The chocolate rocks are from the bulk food store.  They’re candy covered chocolate, and not only do they look great, but they’re delicious too and add a great crunch.   We also added sprigs of fresh mint to make it look as though they were growing in the dirt.  Mint is a great choice for this as it’s edible, and many love chocolate mint flavor.  

One last detail was to use wooden spoons and make them look like plant labels.  I used a sharpie marker to write the word “mint” on the handle of the wood spoons, and then we pushed them into the pudding so that they looked like plant labels in a pot.

If you are making these for kids, you can also add in some gummy worms.  We wanted ours to look more realistic so we skipped these for our dirt dessert recipe, but they’re a fun addition.  If you’re making an Easter dirt cake, you can add some peeps as a fun addition.
