Dirt. Soil. Land. Mud. Whatever you call it, this is the time of year to dig into it. It’s planting season here in Texas. Across the state, different crops are going in the ground. Some are well into the growing stage. Others are ready to be harvested.

That’s just one part of the spring season. I bet your gardens are blooming, too.

Whether it be fruit, fiber or flowers, we depend on the soil and nutrients in it. So, I thought this week, we could celebrate planting season with some sweet, chocolatey dirt.

For Dirt Pudding, you will need…DirtPudding
2 3.9 oz packages chocolate pudding
3 c. milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 8 oz. container whipped topping
1 package chocolate cream sandwiches
gummy worms (optional)

This is a quick and kid-friendly recipe to share with family and friends to top off a successful day of work in the fields or garden.

Start by mixing together the sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese in a large bowl until there are no lumps.

Then add one package of pudding mix and half of the milk. Once that is combined, add the second pouch of pudding and the remaining milk. This will help give your pudding a smooth texture.

Fold the whipped topping into the pudding, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl so everything is well mixed.

Crumble all of the cookies in a large plastic bag with a mallet, and get ready to layer.

Start with a thin layer of cookies followed by half of the cookies. Then add about a half of the remaining cookies to make a thick layer. Add the rest of the pudding and top with all of the cookie crumbles left. Chill for two hours before serving to set.

You can leave it plain or decorate it with gummy worms and flowers. Let’s get our hands dirty in the field, garden or kitchen. Happy planting and from all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
