{ Happy Birthday, Bean & Cookie Crumble Trifle }

Today is my baby Bean's birthday!

He's 15.

That can't be right. *counts on fingers*

FIFTEEN?? What the Holy Romans is that about???


His birthday always falls close to Easter, this year being the day after.
Since everyone is here already anyway, we just have his family party on Easter.

His friend party is later. No one wants 20 extra teenagers on Easter, now do they?

The Bean's cake of choice for the last several years has been this one, from Pioneer Woman.

He asked, very sweetly (no seriously), if I could make him something else to go along with it.

Cookie Crumble Trifle




Looks pretty right?

Yeah, that's my awesome punch bowl from this recipe.

So here's the dealio:

   1/2 cup butter, softened
    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
    2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
    3 1/2 cups milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
    16-32 ounces chocolate sandwich cookies with creme filling*
*depending on preference-I used 32 yesterday and it seemed like too many. 
Also I like to use a mixture of golden cookies & chocolate instead of just chocolate.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar and butter together. Add vanilla. Set aside

mix together the milk and puddings. Stir in whipped topping.

Mix the cream cheese and pudding mixtures together.

Finely crush the cookies- as fine as possible. A food processor does a great job.

Then layer into a large glass bowl.

Hmmm... You guys are smart. You've figured this out.

YES, it's just Dirt.

Which is so common for jokes and kid's parties, but when you put it together like this it becomes a pretty & delicious dessert.

And people love, gummy worms or no!

So, there you have it, make this for your next gathering and when someone asks what it is, say, 

"Oh, well, my it's Cookie Crumble Trifle, of course!".

And they'll be none the wiser.

        And, Happy Birthday, Bean, Momma loves you. 5, 15, or 50, you'll always be my little boy.
