Oreo Cookie Dirt Cake

Just a Sliver: Dirt CakeWe celebrated my sister’s birthday over Labor Day weekend [21 days early] because I won’t be here on her actual birthday to celebrate with everyone 🙁 we had a wonderful family dinner and her dessert of choice was Dirt Cake…also known as a giant, delicious, Oreo Cookie… except better. This was one of our favorites growing up so I was really excited to make it. If you’re looking for a healthy dessert this probably isn’t the one for you. And I wouldn’t encourage anyone trying to make this recipe “better for you” just make it, have a few bites…you won’t be sorry. It’s very simple to prepare – the longest part is layering the Oreo Cookie and cream filling AND it’s no-bake! Refrigerate and it will be great as leftover dessert for the rest of the week. You only need to serve a small dish of this dirt cake and it’s a huge hit with kids [and adults alike]

Fall baking is all the rage right now [seeing as we JUST hit September] but considering it’s 80 degrees, I’m going to keep on with the summertime baking. I’m holding on to the last bit of summer…

Happy Birthday, Little G!!! xoJust a Sliver: Dirt Cake

    I had a similar result as some others with it being too liquidity but after going through the comments I realized my mistake. I did not use instant pudding. But after refrigerating over night it hardened just fine! Thanks for the recipe!
