Foodie Friday

Kansas Dirt Cake
I made this one for baby Emma's baptism for fun for the kids. There are many different ways to make it, I saw on BNOTP, Susan used cheese cake type recipe.

This is what I do.

Bake 9x13 chocolate cake any kind, your favorite recipe or brand.
Tear the cake up and place 1/3 in the bottom of a clean flower pot.
Make chocolate pudding (cooked kind works better) and pour over the cake.
Using 1/2 container of whipped topping, spread over top of pudding.
Layer chopped peanuts, and on top of that, gummy worms.

Continue to layer until the cake is used up. End up with the peanuts, worms, then a layer of crushed oreo cookies. Using a childs set of gardening tools, place them in the flower pot or on a tray holding the flower pot. If you like, insert the stem of an artificial flower for fun. Refrigerate as needed, serve with the gardening tools if you like. Have fun with Foodie Friday, and join everyone else at
