Ingredients

  • 1 Package (16 oz.) Oreo cookies
  • 1 Package (8 oz.) Cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup margerine
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Packages (3 1/2 oz each)
  • vanilla or chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 container whipped cream
  • 2 New clay pots about 6" in diameter (optional)
  • Heavy Aluminum foil (optional)
  • Silk Flowers (optional)
  • Gummy Worms (optional)
  • Plastic Garden Utensils (optional)

Directions

  • Line flowerpots with foil; set aside.
  • Crush cookies until they resemble potting soil. Place 1 cup of crumbs or more in each pot; set aside.
  • Cream the cheese, margerine, sugar and vanilla until blended; set aside.
  • Combine pudding mix and milk (for best results, when mixing pudding, mix in a large pyrex measuring bowl and not a wide bowl-pudding will not mix as well and you will notice small lumps which won't affect the taste).
  • Fold in whipped topping.
  • Gently fold cream cheese and pudding mixtures together.
  • Pour half the mixture into each flowerpot.
  • Top with remaining cookie crumbs.
  • Cover with foil and refrigerate.
  • When ready to serve, remove foil.
  • Top with flowers (whose stems have been wrapped in foil), toss on the Gummy Worms and display with plastic gardening tools.
  • ENJOY!!

Notes

My friend Debbie, who's very creative, gave me this one. Always fun for a kid's party and for young at heart "grown-ups" as well.
