Easter Dirt Recipe is No Bake Dessert Yum

I love this Easter Dirt Recipe!  It’s so easy to make and filled with no bake yum fun.  My family loves a good dirt recipe and this is my version with a little twist on the ingredients.  In fact, this dirt recipe was often chosen over cake on many birthday occasions in our household.

This Easter dessert is a great way to get the kids involved in the meal making process.  It can be made ahead of time, earlier in the day or the night before, and kept in the fridge until it’s ready to serve.  I love making it in individual portions because it the perfect dessert bite and fantastically festive.

I alway say that ‘my favorite ingredient is easy’;  100% true!

This is my kind of recipe because it looks amazing, looks like you spent a lot of time, has the wow factor, but honestly didn’t require an oven or hours.  A total score for everyone!

Here is the printable version of the recipe for your convenience;

Easter Dirt Recipe

Four bowls of easter dirt on a tray filled with easter grass


  • ½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 4 oz. Price Chopper frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 4 oz. Price Chopper low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • ½ teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Price Chopper powdered sugar
  • 3.4 oz. package Price Chopper instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup Price Chopper low-fat milk
  • Price Chopper chocolate crème filled cookies
  • Orange slice candies
  • Green Twizzlers


    1. Layer One: Melt the chocolate morsels in a glass bowl in the microwave for one minute. Note: The chocolate will not look fully melted; stir it to finish the melting process.

      Fold the melted chocolate together with the whipped topping. Add to the bottom of the serving dish.

    2. Layer Two: Stir the cream cheese, vanilla and powdered sugar together. Set aside. In a separate bowl, stir the instant pudding and the milk together until thick. Fold the cream cheese mixture together with the pudding mixture. Add the layer to your serving dishes.

    3. Layer Three: Depending on the serving size of your dishes and the number of guests you are planning on serving, grind 2 – 3 cookies per serving dish in a mini food processor to create the dirt affect for the final layer. Add it to the serving dish.

    4. Candy Carrot: Cut the orange slice candies in half. Using the tip of a small paring knife cut an insert into the top of the candy. Cut the green twizzler into a thin slice that you can cut down the top to look like a carrot top & insert it into the top of the carrot. Add the carrot candy to the top of the dirt as shown in the photo.

    5. The Serving Dish: I used a mini glass dish that I found at Michaels Craft Stores that looks like a glass-potting dish for serving, but you can use whatever dish you prefer. It’s approximately 3” in height and 2 ¾” in width, making it the perfect mini bite. This makes approximately 10 – 12 mini servings.
