Back in elementary school and through middle school (I don’t recall it ever being in high school, which is sad), I lived for the days they served “oreo fluff” in the cafeteria at lunch. It was essentially crushed oreos in Cool Whip. I also remember looking forward to getting dirt in a plastic baseball cap at the Ground Round (does this restaurant even exist anymore?) on birthdays – the gummy worms were the best part, of course. I picked up some Newman O’s for a steal a few weeks ago – only $1.49 – and I’ve been really in the mood for some sort of dirt dessert. Instead of using whipped cream with chocolate pudding, though, I decided I’d try it out with some vanilla greek yogurt. I am so glad I did.
After making the Chocolate Raspberry Pots de Crème earlier in the week, I’ve just wanted to make more of those, but I figured I should switch it up a bit, so I made some homemade chocolate pudding instead. This of course gave me the perfect reason to make some dirt! Add some vanilla Chobani and some crushed Newman O’s, and we’re all set.
I loved the bit of tang that the yogurt added; this is really my perfect kind of dessert. Light, creamy, chocolatey.. and don’t forget the cookies. Love cookies.
Tesla about freaked out when I was taking photos of this; I give him a little spoonful of yogurt every time I eat some, so he was NOT happy when he wasn’t allowed to dig in to this! No chocolate for the kitty bear makes a very sad kitty. 🙁
You should definitely make this, if you’re in the mood for some dirt with a bit more of health mixed in! It’s delicious. I can’t wait to have some more later on today! 🙂
Dirt with Greek Yogurt
1 cup chocolate pudding (recipe here)
1 cup vanilla greek yogurt (I love Chobani)
1 cup crushed Newman O’s or Oreos
In a small dish or bowl, sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of cookies on the bottom of the dish. Spoon 1/4 cup chocolate pudding on top, and spread it out evenly. On top of the pudding, spread 1/4 cup of yogurt. Sprinkle another 2 tablespoon of cookies on top of the yogurt. Spoon another 1/4 cup of pudding on top of the cookies and another 1/4 cup of yogurt on top of the pudding. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of crushed cookies on top. Repeat with the second dish.
