  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar. Set aside.

  • Pour pudding mix into cream cheese mixture. Beat until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Fold in Cool Whip.
  • Prepare in a 9×13 dish by pressing half the crush Oreos on bottom, followed by the pudding filling, and then topped with the remaining Oreos.

Here are some fun substitutions that you could also try for your Easter Dirt Cake:

Coconut Grass: Another fun idea is to mix green food coloring with 2-3 cups of shredded coconut to make “grass” for the bunnies to be in a field!

Different Toppings: You could also substitute the bunny peeps with chick peeps, or swap out the Easter M and M’s for mini marshmallows or your other favorite candies.
