Chocolate Friday - Dirt Cake




Lisa has had a yummy week over at her spot in bloggy world; Stop and Smell the Chocolates. It's been all about cake. And today is the topper, the icing on the cake so to speak. Chocolate Cake!! Does it get any better than that? So without farther ado, here is my contribution to this sweet week.

Dirt Cake (trust me it's good)

Ingredients:
chocolate cake mix, whichever one you like best; I get the one that looks the closest to black as possible. I can't remember the kind right now.
2 boxes chocolate pudding
milk (according to directions on pudding boxes)
1 regular tub cool whip, softened
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 package oreo cookies or equivalent
optional: brand new, clean flower pot, gummi worms, fake flowers, plastic toy insects.

Bake the cake according to instructions on box. While the cake is baking mix together the pudding; again, according to the instructions. Add cool whip. Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar, then add that to pudding mixture. Grind oreo cookies in the blender. After cake is done and cooled so that you can handle it, layer in pan, bowl, or flower pot: cake, pudding mix, oreos. Make a couple of layers. You can layer the worms in with it or put them on top. Add the flowers and insects on top for decoration. This is a neat and fun cake for kids to make. And it fits right in with summer and things growing.



Now go check out Lisa's place and find more chocolate cake recipes and other cake recipes. I'm telling you, this week, Lisa's was the place to get your sugar high. Sweet!




Until next time...

You know, I've eaten this cake before at fellowships and such, but I've never actually made it! I'll have to bookmark this and try it next time I need a dessert :o)

Great idea about dressing your kids in the same color, I would do that too. I only have two and sometimes people ask if they are both mine!!! The nerve of some people.
