I loved the dirt cake. I will in the future however, beat the cream cheese by itself first or maybe with a little of the butter. When I added the cream cheese brick to the cold pudding with the electric beater it became very lumpy. This was a big hit with my son's class though.

I made this several times over the summer for picnics. Everyone loved it and it's now requested for other gatherings. Beware if someone else cuts it, they have a tendency to leave the cookie crumb crust at the bottom of the pan.

This stuff is AWESOME. I prefer to 'frost' the top with the Cool Whip, instead of mixing it in, but I'm sure it's great either way. Also, the recipe doesn't specify to soften the cream cheese, but if you do it mixes in much easier.
