Oreo Dirt Cake

Oreo Dirt Cake

One of my favorite childhood recipes and a crowd favorite! Perfect if you do not have an oven available. We love to add fun toppings for certain holidays.

*The recipe says to chill overnight, but you do not need to if necessary. I made this at 3 PM and it was good to eat by 7.

Prep Time 25 minutes
Additional Time 1 day
Total Time 1 day 25 minutes


  • FYI: We doubled the recipe to fit our bowl, so we DOUBLED the ingredients below:
  • 3½ cups milk
  • 2 (3.4 oz) packages Jello Instant Vanilla Pudding 
  • 1 package of Oreos
  • ½ cup butter room temperature
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature (we prefer the “light” Cream cheese)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 oz Cool Whip thawed in the refrigerator ( I love Cool Whip so I added a little more)
  • Optional Toppings: Gummy worms, strawberries, candy canes



  1. Reserve 8-10 Oreos and cut into fourths. Set aside
  2. Crush Oreos in either a food processor or a Ziplock bag + rolling pin until they are finely crushed. We did not have a food processor or a rolling pin so we crushed the Oreos with a serving spoon. I made sure to put a cutting board underneath.
  3. Set aside

  1. Mix the pudding and milk in a large bowl and set in refrigerator to chill/thicken
  2. While the pudding is in the fridge, In a mixer or hand-held mixer, mix together cream cheese and butter until smooth (30-60 seconds)
  3. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth
  4. Add pudding to the mixture and beat until smooth. (Make sure pudding as set before adding)
  5. Fold in cool whip until smooth.


  1. Layer the pudding mixture and Oreos. Start with pudding and sprinkle the Oreo crumbles and a few of the Oreo chunks in each layer.
  2. Add the optional toppings (Gummy worms, strawberries, candy canes) if desired.
  3. Make sure top layer is the Oreo crumbles.
  4. Chill in Fridge overnight and then serve. **HOWEVER: If you do not have time to chill, we were able to chill for only a few hours and it was so good!
