About this recipe: Serve this easy no-bake cake in a flower pot to trick kids on April Fool's Day, or try it as a good humoured dessert for a gardening friend. Chocolate cookie crumbs are layered with an easy to make vanilla cream.
I loved the dirt cake. I will in the future however, beat the cream cheese by itself first or maybe with a little of the butter. When I added the cream cheese brick to the cold pudding with the electric beater it became very lumpy. This was a big hit with my son's class though. - 04 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this several times over the summer for picnics. Everyone loved it and it's now requested for other gatherings. Beware if someone else cuts it, they have a tendency to leave the cookie crumb crust at the bottom of the pan. - 31 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This stuff is AWESOME. I prefer to 'frost' the top with the Cool Whip, instead of mixing it in, but I'm sure it's great either way. Also, the recipe doesn't specify to soften the cream cheese, but if you do it mixes in much easier. - 21 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
