Happy Earth Day!

In honor of Earth Day today, my kiddo and I whipped up a "dirt cake". He had alot of fun making it and actually didn't even leave me with much clean up. He was on a bit of a sugar high afterwards from all the oreos and gummi worms though. LOL I did make this as a reduced fat version using fat free products and you could not tell a bit. The crunch of the cookies combined with the creaminess of the pudding mixture made for a quite thrilling after dinner dessert.

What did you do today to celebrate Planet Earth?

"Dirt Cake"
1/4 cup softened butter
8oz softened cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 boxes of chocolate fudge instant pudding mix
3 cups milk
1 container of Cool Whip
1 package of Oreos, crushed
Gummi worms to garnish

Mix butter, cream, cheese, sugar and vanilla on low until well blended. Mix in pudding mixes and milk a half a cup at a time until well blended. Fold in Cool Whip. Layer cookies, then pudding, then cookies, then pudding and finally top with cookies. Garnish with Gummi Worms.
