    1. You can make it with shredded coconut and food coloring. I mixed the two and spread it on a large baking sheet to dry. It turned out great!

  1. My cream cheese mixture came out kinda runny. πŸ™ 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?!

    1. 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!

  2. 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.

    1. 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!!

      1. Do you use the pudding mix, milk and vanilla and whisk it until it is set like pudding or do you just whisk it until is mixed, but still runny and then fold it into cream cheese mix?

    1. 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:)

    2. Hi I’m from Australia and want to know what cool whip is..or what I can use as a substitute and it says a container, how much is that…?

      1. It’s whipped cream and a 16 ounce container. You can make your own, using heavy whipping cream. Just google how to make homemade whipped cream/topping. Hope that helps!!

  3. 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.)

    1. 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:)

    1. You can usually find it by jello or in the baking aisle. It’s in a box and is powder in vanilla or white chocolate flavor. Hope that helps!! Hope you find it πŸ™‚

    1. I personally haven’t tried. It’s a pretty important ingredient for this recipe. You can google some cream cheese substitutes, if you can’t have it. Hope that helps πŸ™‚

  4. Can you tell me where you purchased the “grass” candy and what the name of it is? I haven’t seen anything like it. This is such a cute idea! I’m making it for Easter!! Thank you for sharing!

  5. On the dirt cake, can this be made the day before, and when do you decorate it with the bunnies,candy,grass? Do you just refrigerate it and cover with foil everything, or what is the best way to do this? Can’t wait to try.

  6. We loved your cake! I don’t care much for the edible grass so I added a few drops of green food coloring to some coconut. The t turned out lovely and made that delicious cake taste even better!

  7. I made this with my niece and nephew last year and it was a total hit!
    Instead of putting on the peeps and eggs and grass on immediately I had them take “magic beans” and plant them carefully into the cake. I told them that they had to get ready for bed and sleep so the Easter bunny could make it grow….
    He arrived around midnight and carefully took out the beans and placed the peeps and grass in those spots! It was such a hit everyone talked about it all year and we are getting it ready to make one for Easter.
    The EB also left them each a pack of magic beans for this year and amazingly they kept them so safe!
    Thank you and happy Easter!

  8. Fun version is to mix the yellow Oreos with black, use reg. choc pudding and put tootsie rolls in it (some on top, some partially buried). Serve in new small kitty litter pan with scoop. πŸ˜€ Tip – Tootsie rolls get hard if you leave in fridge. I made this & took it into work years ago – people were hesitant to try it! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  9. I’ve visited your website and LOVE it. I see where you can sign up for free ebook, but do you send out emails that I can get?
    Thanks, happy Friday and hope you have a blessed day!!

    1. Thank you so much!! Down at the bottom of the home page, you can subscribe to emails. Also, if you are looking for the e-books, click on the shop tab at the top. There are many different ones πŸ™‚ I hope you like the recipes you try!!

          1. My local Target is not stocking the “grass” this year, however, I went next door and WORLD MARKET stocked it for Easter this year. Score πŸ™‚

    1. It’s actually called edible grass. I found it at Target. They may have it at Walmart. If you have troubles finding it, you could always dye coconut green πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  10. Hi Kristyn… I was just looking fore Easter Cake recipes and found this page.. Your blog is amazing! I am going to try this recipe. Are these original recipes? They look wonderful! Amazing job on your website. I wish you continued success.

  11. Hello! I can’t wait to try this with my family! I noticed in the recipe it states Sugar but in the directions it states powdered sugar. Which one do I use?

  12. Hi, can you please tell me what size cool whip? I know the recipe says a large container but how many ounces in the container?

    Thanks in advance!

  13. I am planning to prepare the Easter Dirt Cake next Sunday.
    It is not clear what size box of pudding I should use.
    Could you please specify .

    1. My only other question is that you use 2 3.4 oz pudding mix but don’t follow the directions on the box? Because then you would use 4 cups milk and not 3?

  14. Had a question for the the Easter dirt cake. For the 2 boxes of instant white chocolate or pudding mix, is it the small box or larger box of pudding mix? Also is there is there a white chocolate pudding mix or would I buy vanilla pudding mix?

    Thank you
    Marissa

  15. So I made a silly mistake and accidentally only did one small container of whip topping and I wondered why it was so soupy. Will putting it in the freezer help at all?

    1. Hmmm..I don’t know. You didn’t make the pudding, then add more milk, did you? I know some make that mistake, which makes it super soupy. You will just have to see if that helps. I know it needs that bigger amount, so it might change it up a little.

    1. I’m not really sure what you did? Did you make the pudding according to the box, then add the milk in the recipe? I know some do & that would make it runny, because of the extra milk.

  16. This was fun to make and delicious! My husband doesn’t care for cool whip and had two servings. Couldn’t find the grass so used green sprinkles.
    Thank You!

  17. This went over well at Easter with my family!! And my boyfriend lived it so much he made .e make more a few days later for home.
