This delicious dish was created for the M&M's Candy Corn White Chocolate Candies Rockin' Howl-o-ween Recipe Contest. I was agonizing over this for days. I bought the M&M's before I went into the hospital, so I felt like I was scrambling to decide on a recipe to try. I no longer had time for testing! Well, I made two recipes and decided to submit this one, a fun variation on classic dirt cake. I'll still share the other one soon though because it is also delicious Halloween food!
I probably stressed out over this contest too much, but I'm such a recipe follower when it comes to baking and sweets. I couldn't think of anything other than desserts that went well with candy corn flavor. These are quite addicting, by the way and exclusive Walmart candy. Anyway, on to the recipe, right? You can check out my search for them in store on ThisMoment.
- 1/2 pk of Peanut Butter Oreos
- 2 c M&M's Candy Corn White Chocolate Candies
- 1/2 c Butter (softened)
- 8 oz Cream Cheese (softened)
- 1/2 c Powdered Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 3-1/2 c Milk
- 2 pks (approx 4 oz each) Chocolate pudding mix
- 8 oz whipped topping (thawed)
- Crush cookies and M&M's to desired sizes (I used the grind option on my blender for the candy and my rolling pin for the cookies)
- Mix the cookie and candy crumbles together
- Pour about 1/3 of the mix into the bottom of your dish
- Whisk milk and pudding mix together in a bowl while you soften the butter and cream cheese in the microwave
- Mix butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a different bowl until smooth
- Stir pudding (which has thickened) and mix in whipped topping until blended
- Add the two mixtures together into one bowl, stirring until blended
- Pour 1/2 of pudding mixture over the crumbles
- Add 1/3 of crumbles
- Pour rest of pudding mixture
- Cover top with the rest of the candy and cookie pieces
- Chill for about 3 hours before serving
The layers are the fun part! Though they don't stay that way when you dish it out, the swirling of the smooth and creamy with crunchy is just… yum!
