I'm definitely a dessert girl, through and through, and growing up in North Carolina most of my life I have become well-acquainted with dirt cake at school bake sales, outdoor barbecues, and family reunions. I, however, had never made dirt cake myself before and was looking for an easy, straight-forward recipe that I could adapt to my own personal tastes... this one is it! I made a couple of substitutions, however. Instead of just using vanilla pudding, I decided to use BOTH vanilla and chocolate! I just mixed the two puddings together with milk and added the whipped topping, like the recipe calls for. If you don't have a food processor, or, like in my case, you don't have a food processor that is very big, filling a Ziploc baggy full of the cookie and crushing them with something heavy - I asked my fiance to do it for me - will work just fine! :) I took this over to my future-in-laws for dinner last night and it was a big hit! Next time, I think I will try using peanut-butter flavored pudding instead of the vanilla or chocolate for something different - a Reese's type dirt cake. Definitely worth a shot, I say. Can't go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate! Mmm!
