Mud Pie

Friday my kids made this mud pie, with minimal assistance from me.  (It is meant to be made with gummy worms, but we couldn't find them at the store so went with Swedish Fish.  Logical? No.  Amusing?  Yes.)  Here are a few pictures over on my family blog of the dessert being assembled and then consumed.

1 package Oreos
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 8oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 container cool whip, thawed
1 package gummy worms (or whatever)
1 lg package instant chocolate pudding
Milk for the pudding

  1. Prepare pudding as directed and place in the fridge.
  2. Crush about 3/4 of the Oreos.  Stir with melted butter.  Press into a 9x13.
  3. Whip the cream cheese and powdered sugar together.  Fold in cool whip.  Spread into the pan.
  4. Spread the pudding into the pan.
  5. Break the remaining Oreos and sprinkle into the pan.
  6. Squish worms or fish or whatever into the dessert.
  7. Refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
