Pumpkin Patch Dirt Pie

This week we made our Pumpkin Patch Dirt pies for a few gatherings we did and went to. I wanted to share this yummy recipe with you. It’s really easy, not a lot of ingredients, and really yummy. Now if you have any intolerances or allergies you can totally tweak it to your liking. For me when it comes to desert I am sticking to the regular stuff, no subs here.

“Pumpkin Patch Dirt Pie”

Ingredients:
1 box chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos or a gluten free brand)
2 – 3.9 oz. packages instant chocolate pudding
3-1/2 cups milk (could use almond, coconut..whatever sub you’d like)
1 – 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 – 8-10 oz. containers frozen whipped topping, thawed
a few gummy worms
A few pumpkin candy corns, and regular candy corn for the fence. You can find the pumpkin ones at Walmart, Walgreens and maybe other grocery stores. But that’s where I found mine.

1. Place chocolate sandwich cookies in a food processor, fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until the cookies become coarse crumbs. It will look like dirt or coffee ground consistency. Place a layer of the crumbs in the pan. Note: Be sure to leave plenty of cookie crumbs for the top – you can’t have a dirt cake without a lot of dirt! I used half cookies for bottom and half for top layer.

2. Whisk together chocolate pudding and milk until thick and pudding like. The package may say 2cups of milk per box, but I only used 3 1/2 cups of milk for two boxes. Chill while making the cream cheese mixture.

3. Beat softened cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in 1 container of thawed whipped topping until smooth. Add the cream cheese mixture to the chocolate pudding mixture, mixing until smooth. See below…and make sure to taste test. Lol

4. Top with a layer of the chocolate pudding mixture, use all of it. And then top with remaining cookie crumbs. Place a few gummy worms in and on the dirt cake. And then add your pumpkins sporadically and the line the pan with candy corn to look like a fence.

5. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. This dirt cake can be made several hours before serving.

And Whola….here it is…the finished product.
