Kansas Dirt Cake

My grandmother found this recipe in the paper and it was an instant hit in the family!  I have dressed this up for Halloween by adding gummy worms and making ‘headstones’ out of cookies.  My mom even served this in a large clay pot she lined with aluminium foil and put a fake plant in the top when she brought this to a family reunion.  You can freeze this as well.

This dessert is extremely rich and sweet no matter how you serve it.  As if we needed another excuse for loving Oreos!
