Dirt Pudding Recipe

Let me tell you the story of how this dirt pudding became a staple at all family gatherings.
A few years ago, after church one morning, I asked my dad what dessert he’d like for our Father’s Day celebration. He said Dirt Pudding.
This confused me a bit because that’s NOT a dessert our family makes…ever. But, hey, it’s his day so I said OK and headed to the store. Ever since then, this Oreo Dirt Pudding Recipe is in the rotation of desserts at family meals.
Oreo Dirt Pudding is a delicious no-bake dessert that everyone loves.

This particular dirt pudding recipe is very versatile in the way you serve it.

The great thing about this no bake dessert recipe is that you can make it like the trifle seen above, or you could just grab a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and add the vanilla pudding mixture then top with the crushed Oreos and call it good.
