I made this without the powdered sugar and butter because I didn't have them on hand, and this turned out SO good. It takes a bit of time to make, but it is well worth it. I used a mini food chopper to crush the oreos and it was very quick and much easier than crushing them by hand! Thanks for the recipe.

I make this without the butter and powdered sugar and it turns out great too! If you buy an inexpensive clay flower pot and some fake flowers you can make this look like your serving real dirt ;-) Add a cute gummy worm for added fun.

I make this with chocolate pudding, and omit butter/margarine for a healthier version.
Layering the pudding first, then the cream cheese (light)/cool whip (light) mixture, topping with Oreos. It does taste better once refrigerated for 2 hrs or so to meld the flavors, but sometimes we can't help ourselves and eat right away! Don't forget the gummy worms!

This is a favorite for us all around. The kids (and those who are a kid at heart) love it when I add gummy worms. I stick the bottom half in so they look like they are climbing out. An attention getter for sure!!

A family favorite! Sometimes we'll switch it up with chocolate pudding and syrup. Or, we'll use Nilla cookies instead of Oreos. But the favorite is the vanilla and Oreos because it tastes like a GIANT CRUSHED OREO! Thanks for posting!

YUMMY!!! What a great easy recipe! My 10 year old daughter helped me make it and it came out delicious! I put it in a plastic beach pale and used the shovel to serve it! TOO CUTE!

made it for the daycare children and they loved it! I added vanilla flavoring to the cream cheese mixture.

I tasted this before I added the oreo's and mumbled under my breath "this is dangerous". The best dessert I have ever had. It was very easy to make. Thank you!!
