Its too hot to cook lately, so I have been digging in my recipe books, boxes and binders for desserts that don’t require putting on the oven. Dirt cake has got to be one of my favorite no bake desserts.
I like using my trifle bowl for pretty presentation, but any bowl or even a 9 by 13 pan would work.
It doesn’t take long to throw together. I crush the Oreo cookies in my food processor but if you don’t have one you can place them in a ziplock bag and beat them with a wooden rolling pin (I have done this before and it is great for frustrations.
Dirt cake is a great dish to bring to a summer potluck I have not come across a person yet who doesn’t like Dirt Cake.
