Decadent Dirt Pudding – This ain’t your momma’s regular old dirt pudding. This is my Aunt Beth’s version of dirt pudding. It’s a must-have at every holiday dinner in my house. In fact, we must have TWO whole Tupperware cake carriers full! My guys need lots of leftovers of everything, and this more so than most any other dish or dessert. I have to say, I don’t blame them. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how our first born son, Bradley, takes what is already a truly decadent dirt pudding straight over the top. 😛
Okay. If the recipe as given just isn’t decadent enough, use two bags of Double Stuf Oreos instead! It’ll make it super rich, but perfect for those with an insatiable sweet tooth. 😋
I mentioned this recipe in my Decadent Nilla Wafer Banana Pudding post. I never liked banana puddings until I started making it using the same base ingredients, but with Jello Instant Banana Pudding mix and vanilla wafer cookies. It’s unbelievably, incredibly scrumpdillyicious! You should try it, too! 😊
Truly Decadent Dirt Pudding
- 1 bag Oreos (family size), crushed
- 2 boxes Jello Instant French Vanilla Pudding
- 3-1/2 cups 2% or whole milk
- 1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 large or 2 smalls bowls frozen whipped topping, thawed
Whisk the 2 boxes of pudding with the milk in a large bowl. Refrigerate until well-chilled and set, about 20 minutes.
Using a wire whisk, beat the cream cheese, butter, and sugar until well-blended and cheese lumps are all gone. (Microwave for 20 seconds if too stiff to whisk, but try not to let the butter melt.)
Scrape the cream cheese mixture into the chilled and set pudding and stir until completely combined.
Fold the Cool Whip into the pudding cream cheese mixture until completely combined.
Spread the pudding mixture in a 9×13 or larger dish (a rectangular Tupperware cake keeper works great) and spread crushed Oreos evenly over the top.
Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or over night to allow the crushed cookies to soften.
Serve and enjoy!
Happy eating! 😊
