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.
I know dirt (the dessert that consists of pudding, crushed Oreos, and Cool Whip) is rather unoriginal and you have probably seen quite of a few of those recipes already, so I thought putting it into a pie shell might add a little something extra and with no fuss! There may already be an recipe like this out there on the web, but I had an unused pie crust sitting around so that is what partially gave me the idea.
This is a great dessert to make in the morning or even an hour before rushing out the door for parties, trick or treating, etc. – you decide!
The lowdown: A light pudding-like filling filled with Oreos and Cool Whip then thrown into a chocolate pie crust, topped with a pile of crushed Oreos and gummy snacks. Perfect for the last minute or not so last minute of us out there!
NOTE: As you can see in the picture of the slice it’s a bit messy looking and doesn’t look like a regular slice of pie. If you dob’t like the idea of making a pie that doesn’t serve perfect slices than this might not be a good recipe for you. But honestly, it’s easy to serve and so good, that I don’t think anyone will mind – especially the kiddos!
