We stayed up all night crushing Oreos in a zip-lock bag because we did not have a food processor. Can you believe it? We were so determined to make it and we did. Here it is! 15 years later and my cousins are still asking: Trina did you make the Oreo stuff? Lol!

How to Serve Oreo Dirt Pudding?
Dirt Pudding Recipe is made during Halloween and other holidays, so it is a perfect choice for any occasion. It is often served by adding gummy worms.
My favorite way to serve Dirt Pudding is by setting it in glass trifle bowls to see all the different layers! You can also use a 9 x 13-inch pan, and spread thin pudding and Oreo layers; this way you will get a dirt cake.
One of the funniest ways to serve Oreo Dirt Pudding is in a cute sand pail topped with colored gummy worms. Another best way to serve Dirt Pudding is to make them in individual cups, especially at birthday parties and kids’ gatherings.
Give your cups an extra decorative flair by placing mini garden tools or edible flowers on top for a more garden-like appearance. You can adapt this dessert to match the theme of your special event. Be creative and create a unique memorable treat!
