But, luckily, my mom gave me her recipe for the good stuff! Honestly, the recipe kind of freaked me out. I mean, 1 stick of oleo? Really? You know it’s an old family recipe when they still call for oleo! But, it tastes just as good as I remember it!
Mine aren’t nearly as cool as my mom’s were, but I wanted to be able to see the layers of the dessert, so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to dust off our wine glasses. And, since Halloween is coming up, Dirt Cake seemed to fit the holiday theme! It would be fun to create a little graveyard with little graham cracker tombstones, but that didn’t occur to me until I started writing the post, so…I didn’t do that yet.
