I have made this several times and it is always a hit. I have put this in a new flower pot and put plastic flowers in it and a plastic trowel. It's a cute way to take it to a bbq in the summer.

This is the best dirt dessert recipe! I use white chocolate pudding and whipped cream cheese. Thanks for posting!

This is a great recipe! The consistency of the pudding is mousse-like. Is very rich and creamy but not droopy. Love it! Thanx!
