Quarry Cake (AKA Dirt Cake)

Lesson:  The earth is made up of four layers – (1) Crust; (2) Mantle; (3) Outer Core; and (4) Inner Core.  Just as our Quarry Cake has four layers.  Thankfully, our Quarry Cake tastes much better than dirt!      

What you will need:

1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 – 8 oz. container of Cool Whip
1 – Package of Oreos
2 – Packs of French Vanilla Jello INSTANT Pudding
1 – 8 oz. container of Cream Cheese
1 cup of powdered sugar
3 and ½ cups of milk

Directions:

  1. Cream together butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.  

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk pudding, milk and Cool Whip.  Add in cream cheese mixture.  

  3. Crush Oreos    
    *Tip – Place Oreos in a tightly sealed, gallon Ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin.

  4. Layer cookie and pudding mixture and chill for at least 2 hours before serving. 
    *Tip – Layer in a 13x9 clear baking dish to see the layers.  

  5. Top with gummy worms, grapes (aka rocks), and/or Matchbox dump trucks.
