Delicious Dirt Cake

Most people have had dirt cake, so I didn't think it was worth a post until I saw how much everyone at a recent party loved it! I am not a huge pudding fan, so I enjoy dirt cake but it isn't on the top of my list. It is a simple dessert that is extremely kid friendly, oh and a man pleaser.

I usually put this in a bucket with gummy worms, the traditional way.

But since this was an adult party I decided to put it in
a trifle dish, and I really love the way layers look.

I haven't made this cake since my boyfriend's mother bought me a handy dandy food processor for Christmas. I love it, can't get enough of it. I kiss it before I go to sleep every night. I hate when people say that food processors aren't necessary. NOT TRUE! 

I have tried to grind Oreos up in a blender, it was a mess and they stuck in the bottom. 
Crushing them with a can is effective but it is time consuming  and most of the time I crush the bag so much there's a hole and then a mess. The processor cut my time in half, it was like a cooking miracle. 

Look at how fine crumbs turned out. Ah fabulous.

1 pkg Oreos
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 cup Powered Sugar
1/2 cup Softened Butter
3 1/2 cups Milk
2 (3.9 oz) packages Vanilla Pudding
12 oz Cool Whip

Cream together, Butter, Cream Cheese and Powdered Sugar
Mix 3 1/2 cups of milk with pudding packages (I put mine in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up) then add cool whip. Then mix with Cream Cheese mixture.
Place Oreo cookies in a food processor and process until the cookies are fine crumbs, you can also place cookies in a large ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin, or even a soup can would work, until cookies become desired consistency.
Starting with cookie crumbs alternate layering with cream cheese and pudding mixture ending with crumbs. Let refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
