Dirt-N-Worms

For her birthday, which I can't believe was already a month ago, my mother in law asked for lasagna roll ups and Dirt-N-Worms for her birthday dinner. Easy enough, consider it done! :) Looking back at my recipes, I found it extremely hard to believe that I have never posted about Dirt-N-Worms... It is a family favorite, usually found instead of cake at a lot of my nieces and nephews birthday parties. It was even the "grooms cake" at my brother's wedding, that is how much our family likes Dirt-N-Worms!! I've seen it made in individual cups, my brother's was even in a sand pail, but I just make one big pan - ready for everyone and easy as can be! :)



Dirt-N-Worms

2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 packages of instant chocolate pudding
3 cups milk
12 ounces cool whip, thawed
1 package oreos
gummy worms

In first bowl, combine butter, cream cheese and sugar. In second bowl, combine pudding and milk. Combine both bowls together and fold in cool whip. Smash oreos and layer half of the oreos on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Add pudding and cover with rest of oreos. Poke worms into "dirt". Refrigerate.

Additional idea: We have tried this using butterscotch pudding and gummy bears... Bears in the bed - still a hit, but I definitely like the original idea best! :)
