Easter dirt cake is my kids favorite of all our Easter treats!
Is it just my kids or does every child feel an irresistible urge to put dirt in their mouths? I think that is the beauty of this Easter dirt cake! It is dirt they are actually allowed to eat! My kids love our traditional dirt cake so much that I decided to switch it up and make a fun Easter treat version with peeps and cadbury eggs instead of the traditional gummy worms! I hope your little ones love it as much as mine always do!
How to make an Easter Dirt cake:
Easter dirt cake is made just like a regular dirt cake, but I have a secret ingredient in my cream cheese layer that takes this recipe over the top!
Fun and easy easter dirt cake! Everyone will love this delicious and festive Easter treat!
- 1 large box instant chocolate pudding
- 3 cups milk
- 25 vanilla sandwich cookies
- 25 chocolate sandwich cookies
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 8 oz cool whip
- green food coloring
- Cadbury Mini Eggs and Peeps for Decorating
First thing you’ll want to do is make your pudding mix according to package directions and stick in the fridge to set.
Next, process your chocolate cookies in a food processor and spread evenly on the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Spread pudding evenly across chocolate cookie layer.
In a separate bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, cool whip and cream cheese and beat until smooth. Add a few drops of green food coloring to make a grass layer. Smooth cream cheese mixture over pudding layer.
Crush white sandwich cookies in food processor until crumbs and then toss in your green food coloring.
Garnish with Cadbury eggs and Peeps, (the kids will love helping with this part)! Enjoy!
Here’s a picture of what all the stages look like! This Easter dirt cake is super rich too, so you really only need a little bit to curb that sweet craving!
