Dirt CakeThis, no-bake flower pot cake is as fun to make as it is to eat!

1 (20-ounce) package cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
1 (8-ounce) package Wisconsin cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 (3.5-ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix

  1. Crush cookies until fine. Set aside. Beat cream cheese, butter and sugar until smooth.
  2. In separate bowl, mix pudding and milk until well blended. Fold pudding into cream cheese mixture.
  3. Whip cream to soft peaks; add granulated sugar; beat to stiff peaks; gently fold into cream cheese mixture.
  4. Wash and dry terra cotta pot; cover hole in bottom with foil square (we suggest lining the inside of pot with foil or plastic wrap). Place one cup crushed cookies in bottom of pot. Top with 1/3 of the pudding mixture. Continue layering until pot is full, ending with crumbs on top. Chill several hours or overnight.
  5. Prior to serving, decorate the top with gummy worms and silk or plastic flowers.
