This is from The American Girl Library - Great Girl Treats book.
The ingredients are as follows:
  • 1 pound chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 ounces of Cool Whip, thawed
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 2 packages of instant vanilla pudding
  • Gummi worms
You also need a clean, new flower pot, big enough to hold 2 1/2 to 3 quarts and some fake flowers

Use plastic wrap to plug the hole in the bottom of the pot.
Crush the cookies by putting them in a ziploc bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin. (Younger kids can whack them with a large spoon)
Combine the cream cheese, margarine, and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat with a mixer on medium until fluffy. Add the Cool Whip and beat on low unti lsmooth, scraping the sides with the spatula.
In another bowl, combine pudding and milk and whisk until slightly thick, then add this to the cream cheese mixture and blend until smooth.
Pour about 1/3 of the cookie crumbs into the bottom of the flower pot. Then spoon in half of the pudding/cream cheese mixture. Add another layer of cookie crumbs then the rest of the pudding mixture.
Sprinkle the remaining cookie crumbs on top.
Refridgerate for several hours or overnight.
Decorate with gummi worms and fake flowers!

This is a really cute "project" and I tied it into school by having Reilly write out the shopping list and help me look for the items. Plus, she helped me put it all together.
Here is a link to pictures of it on my blog: "Potted Pudding"

It is SO GOOD!!!!!!! Because it's not just pudding and it's got the cool whip and cream cheese in it, it is a fantastic dessert!!
(I'm thinking I need to make another one! It's been too long!)
