Oreo Dirt Pudding

Classic Oreo Dirt Pudding


  • 2 packages vanilla instant pudding
  • 6 cup cold milk, whole or 2%
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 8 oz. block cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 12 oz. container of Cool Whip
  • 1 14 oz. package of Oreos
  • Gummy worms, to decorate


  1. In a large bowl with a handheld mixer, combine the cold milk with the instant vanilla pudding packages for 3-5 minutes. Let this mixture sit for an additional 5 minutes to firm up.
  2. Add 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the cream cheese, mixing together until everything is fully incorporated. If you see a few tiny specs of cream cheese, that is okay.
  3. Lastly, stir in the cold Cool Whip until completely incorporated.
  4. Set in the fridge until you are ready to assemble.
  5. To assemble, gently crush all of the Oreos in a Ziploc bag. Don’t be afraid to leave some larger chunks.
  6. In a small mason jar, layer the Oreo crumble followed by the pudding. Repeat the layering process until the jar is full. Finish by topping with Oreo crumble and gummy worms.

Note: This dessert can also be made in a 9×13 baking dish or a classic parfait bowl.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
