Dirt Pie

Dirt Pie
Hi everyone, okay I know I am a terrible person that makes promises about my blog and never follows through.  I have no idea what it is, but it's almost like when I was more busy, I made it a point to post blogs, but now with more free time, I just don't feel like sitting and blogging? Does that even make sense? Haha, I don't think it does.  Also, I recently got really fast internet for our family and became hooked on YouTube, I mean I have always watched YouTube videos, but at home that meant waiting 10 minutes for a video to load before being able to watch anything. Now I can just watch video after video.  And my addiction are beauty videos and cooking videos! Okay now on to the recipe!

Okay, well I made this dish way back on Halloween and I am just getting around to posting it.  But maybe this will inspire folks to make this next Halloween? Or you can get white oreo cookies and some beachy gummy worm and make it for a summer themed party?  I actually made this dish for my co-worker who kept insisting that he really wanted some dirt pie.  And while I was at it, I made two pies, one for my office and one for my friend's kiddie Halloween party.  You can just half the ingredients and make one pie, or better if you have a trifle dish, then you can layer the oreo and creamy layers!  This was definitely a hit and believe me worth EVERY calorie ;)

Ingredients for Pie
Ingredients (2 - 9inch circle pies):
1/4 cup butter
2 - 8oz packages of cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
2 - instant vanilla pudding packs
3 1/2 cups milk
8oz Cool Whip
1 1/2 package of Oreo cookies
1 package Gummy Worms

1. In a medium bowl, make the vanilla pudding according the the instructions on the box of the instant pudding.
2. Fold in thawed cool whip.
3. In another small bowl mix the butter, cream cheese, and powder sugar.
4. Mix the ingredients from the small bowl (step 3) with the medium bowl (step 2). Mix so everything is well incorporated.
5. Smash the oreos in a Ziploc bag until they are finely chopped (should resemble dirt).  I used a food processor to eliminate the mess!
6. In your first circle dish, first lay out a layer of 'dirt' (orea crumbs), then lay out some worms for a surprise for people, lay with half the whipped creamy mixture (step 4), and top with 'dirt.'
7. Add some worms here and there to make it seem like they are coming out of the 'dirt.'
8. Repeat process for the second pie.
9. Chill for at least 2 hours.  I stored mine in the fridge overnight!
10. ENJOY!
