Hello, it’s me Lily again!

Do you know what’s coming up? If you guessed Spring Break, you’re correct!! Today is the first day of Spring Break and we have some friends coming from Arizona to visit us. We are so excited to hang out with them and do some fun things like the rodeo, the zoo, San Antonio and more. 😀

Do you know we are still on the bunny theme (remember the Bunny Pudding cups from last week)? Today’s recipe is for Easter Oreo Dirt Cake. This is one of our favorite desserts, but we made it an Easter version. I think if you like PEEPS and OREOS, then you’ll love this. It’s really easy and of course – it’s YUMMY!!

Here is the recipe:

You can make this with vanilla pudding too, but we love the white chocolate pudding best!

    I can’t wait to make this for my family for Easter! Thank you for the coconut grass tip. Happy Easter!

    My cream cheese mixture came out kinda runny. 🙁 I mixed everything together and went to pour it on the crushed oreos and it was runny and not thick like in the pic above. Wonder what I did wrong?!

    • 18

      Can I make two days before serving without it getting runny!

      Not sure what happened. Did you melt the butter? You mix the softened cream cheese and softened butter, then mix in the powdered sugar and fold in whipped topping. Also, you mix the pudding mix with the vanilla and milk. Some make the pudding, then add the milk and vanilla, which would make it runny. I hope that helps. Let me know if you try it again!

    I found my grass in the Easter candy section at Walgreens if that helps anyone. The only issue was that it was flavored and green happens to be green apple. I think with so little it won’t be too overpowering though. I also know the Joann Fabrics by house carries it.

    I love your dirt cake. You have inspired me to make it for dessert for Easter this year. Thanks for sharing. Jnetti

    Do you only use the pudding mix or do you actually make the pudding?

    • 24

      You will just use the pudding mix, but it will get mixed with the milk and vanilla, so it’s like making the pudding. You can make this year round, without adding the treats on top..we love it!!

    Enjoy your recipes and posts very much ! Thank you !

    Kim Thompson :

    I’ve never had white chocolate pudding. Is it as good as regular chocolate pudding?

  14. 29

    Does the cookie crust hold together to slice this like a cake or do you scoop it out like a pudding?

    • 30

      Did you give it a try? I have a recipe for Dirt Cake that we eat all year long, that is so good! It’s our go-to dessert and it’s just scooped out:)

  15. 31

    I couldn’t find the edible grass, so we used some food coloring to dye shredded coconut. Turned out great!

    Rachel Belardo :

    Will the peeps hold up in the fridge overnight or should I wait til tomorrow to decorate?

  17. 34

    The Easter Dirt Cake was a hit! So much fun to make, and eat! Thank you for sharing this! (For anyone planning on making the portion size in the photo, make sure you half the recipe.)

  18. 35

    Is the butter melted or softned

    • 36

      Softened:) Thanks for stopping by!! I know it’s passed Easter, but I have the recipe for our regular Kansas City Dirt Cake on the blog, that we enjoy all year long:)

    This was so yummy! I posted our version on my blog with a link back to yours for the recipe (I hope that’s ok!?) Ours doesn’t look nearly as cute, but we had fun making it (and eating it!)
