Oreo Dirt Pudding – This Easter I decided to make a recipe using Peeps and Oreos to make an dirt pudding the kids are sure to love.
Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Resurrection Sunday.
One way that you really know that Easter and Spring are fully upon us is by the large amount of marshmallow Peeps that you see everywhere that you turn. I mean really you cannot walk into any store this time of year without seeing them. So you know I could not resist picking up a few packs and finding a way to use them that would also incorporate the Easter holiday.
So after typing ‘Easter Desserts’ into the search box on Pinterest…this recipe was one that seemed easy enough that I could not resist giving it a try.
Oreo Dirt Pudding Ingredients:
- 1 large box instant chocolate pudding
- 2-3/4 cup cold milk
- 1 package Oreo cookies
- 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
- green food coloring
- Peeps marshmallow bunnies
- M&Ms candy eggs
Using an electric mixer whisk the chocolate pudding mix and cold milk for 5 minutes; until thick and smooth. Put all of the pudding in an even layer in a deep, glass serving dish and place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes until fully set.
Using a food processor or blender to mix the Oreo cookies into chunky crumbles and spread those over the pudding.
In a large disposable bag, add coconut and a little green food coloring. Shake the bag well until the food coloring is evenly distributed and the coconut turns ‘grass green’.
Spread the coconut over the cookie dirt layer.
Decorate with Peeps marshmallow bunnies and candy eggs.
*Tip – To get the bunnies to stand up straight, press a toothpick into the bottom on a bunny and into the layered dessert.
This dessert is sweet without being overly sweet if you know what I mean. Also the different textures and flavors really come together and make this recipe delicious. The shredded coconut also gives the smooth pudding a little bit of a crunch. In other words you have to give this recipe a try…the kids will also love helping out with this recipe.
