Dirt Pie


This recipe has done the rounds and may very well look similar to others on the internet.  I have just adapted the various versions to fit my requirements etc. 

2 Cups Oreo crumbs
2 Oreo cookies
1/3 cup of melted butter
1/4 cup of sugar

1 small tub of cream cheese (250ml)
1 cup of icing sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 tub of Cool Whip

1 box of chocolate pudding (or 2 if you'd like a thicker layer)
2 cups of milk (or 4 if you are doubling the chocolate pudding layer)

1 small carton of whipping cream

CRUST -
  • Combine the Oreo crumbs, melted butter, and sugar together and press into a 9x9 pan
CREAM CHEESE LAYER -
  • Mix/blend the cream cheese, icing sugar, Cool Whip, and 2 Oreo cookies together until smooth
  • Pour on top of the Oreo base
  • Chill until set (usually 20 minutes should be good but don't quote me - my day was somewhat hectic)
CHOCOLATE FILLING - 
  • Easy - make as per the box instructions (whipping the mix and milk together), and then pour over the cream cheese layer
TOPPING - 
  • Whip the cream until stiff and add to the top of the pie
  • Decorate with more cookie crumbs, or I grated some chocolate over the top
