A fun happy yummy dessert! I once won a cooking contest with this! For the most creative dessert! One of the only things I've ever won!
1 medium sized, new plastic flower pot (about 8 inches in diameter works well
, or use two smaller pots about 6 inces in diameter.)
*I've used a childs sand bucket and shovel too.
1 newly purchased garden trowel.
3 large gummy or plastic worms, optional
Plastic flowers or edible flowers from a specialty store.
1 16 oz bag Oreo cookies
1/2 cup butter softened
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powderd sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 4-serving size boxes INSTANT chocolate-fudge flavor pudding
3 cups milk
1 12-oz container non-dairy frozen whipped topping, thawed
Gather pot, trowel, worms and flowers.
Crush the cookies until they resmeble potting soil. Set aside.
Cream the butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy.
Combine the pudding mix and milk until will blended, then fold in the whipped topping. Gently fold the cream cheese and pudding mixture together.
To asemble: layer 1/3 of the cookie crumbs followed by 1/2 of the pudding mixture, the 1/3 of the crumbs and then the rest of the pudding. Top with the remaining crumbs. Refrigerate 10-12 hours.
About 1/2 hours before serving, remove from refrigerator and decorate with flowers and worms. Serve by digging out the portions with the trowel!
If you can serve with a large glass of ice cold milk!
Instead of putting it in a flower pot you could use a plastic pumkin... and decorate the top to look like a grave yard.
