This was a breeze to make and the hit of the party. With a baby in the house, I never have time to make a dish from start to finish in one shot. This is a great recipe for those with a tiny time budget. Day 1, I crushed the oreos. Day 2, I made the butter mixture. Day 3, I made the pudding mixture and added it to the butter. Day 4, I put it all together, decorated it, and ate it! I must say, though, this is expensive to make compared to a regular old cake. Very few of the ingredients are pantry staples, so I had to go out and buy all these processed foods. Cream cheese - $3. Cool whip - $4. Oreos - $7. Pudding - $2. Decorations - $5. Holy cow! $21 for DIRT CAKE??? Not so great for those with a tiny money budget. By the way, I decorated it with gummy worms and fake body parts. I layered it in a glass cake dish and I was disappointed that the cream layer was white, so layered the effect looks more like an oreo than dirt. I added about 5 tablespoons of cocoa powder, plus food coloring, to turn it brown. It was yummy!
