My great aunt introduced me to Dirt Cake when I was a wee tyke and I looked forward to every family gathering after that initial intro. I lost my recipe, which is what brought me here. I wish I had listened to my gut when it told me that better and confectioners sugar were nit a part of my aunt's recipe. But alas, it's been so long and I lost my recipe, so what do I know...
Anyway, heed the reviewers' suggestions to omit the butter and sugar. The batter tastes like pure lard with all that butter and the finished product just tastes like a bowl of sugar, saccharine, and Secondly, mix chocolate and French vanilla for a more "muddy" look that also tastes better than plain vanilla. As for the amount of cookies, I probably could have used more, though this could be due to one or both of the following: 1) the batter was too rich so thicker layers of cookie crumbs would have served to break up the lard consistency of the batter. 2) I manually crushed the Oreos, so they may not have been as fine as they would be had I used a food professor.
