A little last minute Halloween Dessert (Dirt Pie)

| by | Desserts, Fun stuff, Pies & Tarts, Recipes

Hello there and a very Happy Halloween to all! I have a busy day ahead of me (most of it doesn’t even involve the holiday other than doing some last minute pumpkin carving, lol) so I am going to keep this post short and to the point.



I know there are probably a few of us out there that either put off making a special dessert, were far too busy to even think about it, or just didn’t even know what to make. For those of you who fit these descriptions, I have good news: today I am sharing with you probably the most perfect last minute dessert you are going to find! It’s quick, easy, fun, and super tasty, it’s Dirt Pie.

Halloween is almost here and I’m trying to squeeze in the last of my themed desserts while I can before moving on to Thanksgiving goodness and then… CHRISTMAS!!! Anyway… this past week has been nothing but a dessert failure for me; it began with a cheesecake venture that started out as miniature cheesecakes with a surprise inside (I’m not going to say what the surprise is as hopefully a better result will be up on the blog at some point this week) but somehow morphed into cheesecake squish balls dipped in chocolate ganache – how much further away from individual cheesecakes topped with chocolate ganache could you get? I know. Then… came the cake balls. Oh yes, the cake balls. Do ever get one idea that just seems to keep changing into another? That happens to me a lot. Anyway, this was one of those things. It started out as an idea to make a cake that consisted purely of cake balls but then when looking up the idea to see if that sort of thing even existed, so I would know how on earth to cut/serve/eat it, I couldn’t find anything but cakes wrapped in cake balls.

It’s getting closer and closer to Halloween and it seems to be getting warmer here in Texas… alas, most likely no cool holiday here! I guess I can pretend – especially with these homemade Oreos.

Halloween used to be one of my favorite holidays of the year and, it probably still is to some extent, I only wish I lived in a state where fall actually is a season!
