Dirt Cake Trifle

Some friends of ours just moved into a new house and are having people over for dinner tonight.  When I asked what I could bring they told me something sweet and they weren't talking about Chad... He is going too don't worry...

Anyhooooo...  Chad and I couldn't decide on what we wanted.  We figured that we hadn't had dirt cake in a long time so we googled a recipe and bought the ingredients while we were running errands this morning.  The recipe had the calories listed at the bottom of it and ewww it was bad so everything I used was "fat free" or "sugar free" to help a little bit...

You are going to need
1/2 cup of butter softened
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese softened
1/2 confectioners sugar
2 packages instant vanilla pudding
3 1/2 cups of milk
2 containers of whipped topping
1 pack of oreos

Chop the cookies in a food processor until really fine

Mix the butter, cream cheese, and sugar in a bowl... set aside

In a large bowl mix pudding powder, milk, and 1 container of whipped topping together
Next you want to combine to butter mixture with the pudding
Now that everything is mixed you are ready to layer.  I am using a  vase that I found at WalMart for $5... start with the cookies,then a layer of the pudding, and then top with your last container of whipped cream
It's going to be rich, it's going to have some calories, it's all going to be worth it.
