Dirt Cake

I've tried different type of dirt dessert recipes over the years, but I've never been fully satisfied with one I've found... til now.

This is perfect. I seriously wouldn't change anything about this recipe! (Well, except for the calorie content...) If you really wanted to cut down on the calories, you could try cutting out some of the Oreos, using light cream cheese, skim milk, etc. However... this is worth the calories. 

I made this for Easter with my extended family (thus the Peeps, eggs, and green sprinkles), but you really don't need to decorate it unless it's for a holiday. I'm considering making this again soon just for a random Wednesday or something. Or possibly just because baby says it sounds good. ;) 

Remember, comments are loved! Do you have a favorite dirt dessert recipe?
