How to make Easter Dirt Cake

This cake only takes about 15 minutes to make. It does need to set up in the fridge for a few hours, but it takes little work and the result is amazing.

CREAM. Begin by making your creamy, pudding mixture. To make this, cream your cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in the powdered sugar with a hand mixer and fold in whipped topping. Set this aside.

PUDDING. In another bowl, make pudding by mixing milk, pudding and vanilla. Let this set up for a few minutes and then pour into the cream cheese mixture. Use your hand mixer to mix well. Set aside.

OREOS. Then, crush all the Oreos by putting them in a food processor or Ziploc bag and crushing with hands or the bottom of a cup. Pour about 2/3 of the Oreos into the bottom of a 9×13 pan.

LAYER. Pour the cream cheese/pudding mixture over the Oreos. Then top with remaining crushed Oreos. Place in fridge and let set for a few hours before serving.

Top with the following candies right before serving:

  • Edible Grass
  • M&Ms (your favorite variety)

So cute and so delicious!

Variations and Storing

This cake can also be made using chocolate pudding if you are going for a more dirt-looking cake. You can also change it up based on the OREOS you use. There are always new Oreo varieties that come out during the holiday and you can change the flavor up just a bit based on which cookies you use.

You can also change out the candies, or can even add Carrot Strawberries on top instead of Easter candy.

STORING. Dirt Cake is best stored when covered tightly with Saran Wrap or foil and placed in the fridge for up to 3 days – you may need to remove some candies to do this. We love to have this cake for leftovers, but admit we rarely have any. 😉

  2. 5 stars
    This cake is everything! We call it Oreo fluff and it’s my husband’s absolute fave!! I’ve made it for every holiday so far!!!

      1. Target usually carries edible grass in their stores during the Easter season. I would try there first and if they don’t have it you could check at Wal-Mart. Hope this helps!

    1. Target usually carries edible grass around Easter time. If Target doesn’t have it you can try Wal-Mart as well. Good luck! Hope this helps!

    1. It sure will! Just half all of the ingredients from the ingredient list and place everything in an 8×8 pan instead of a 9×13. 🙂

    Unfortunately I am OBESE and trying to lose weight ~ so I will stay away from this.
    Thanks for sharing 🐰

    I love this, my grand-daughter and I made this, only thing different was we made in small individual pies. The kids love having their own.
    Thank you

    My question refers to the oreos…befor crushing them, did you leave or remove the cream from the oreos?

    1. You sure can! The only thing I wouldn’t do yet is put the toppings of PEEPS, edible grass or M&M’s on the cake until just before serving. That way the toppings will stay fresh. 🙂

      1. This will be my first time making! Would it be ok if I make it Saturday evening and leave it in the fridge over night? Would it still be good?

    1. You can but it’s usually best when stored in the fridge. You can cover it tightly with Saran Wrap or foil and place it in the fridge for up to 3 days – you may need to remove some candies to do this. 🙂
