How To Make Pumpkin Patch Dirt Cake

For this Halloween-inspired dirt cake, a layer of chocolate ice cream is topped with chocolate cookie “dirt” and decorated with candy corn pumpkins.

Preparation: 30 minutes
Freeze Time: 1 hour
Total: 1 hour 30 minutes



  • 19.1ozchocolate sandwich cookies,(1 package), such as Oreo®
  • 24ozchocolate ice cream,(2 round cartons)
  • ½cupvanilla frosting,prepared
  • 1dropgreen food coloring
  • 30mellocreme pumpkins,(candy corn)


  1. Crush the cookies in 2 batches in a food processor.

  2. Spread 1⅓ cups of crumbs over the bottom of a 9-x-13-inch baking pan.

  3. Cut away the cardboard packaging from 1 carton of ice cream with scissors. Slice the ice cream crosswise into 1-inch-thick rounds with a long knife.

  4. Arrange the slices over the crumbs, cutting smaller pieces to fill gaps. Cover the ice cream with another 1⅓ cups crumbs. Repeat with the second container of ice cream, and top with remaining crumbs.

  5. Freeze for at least 1 hour or until firm.

  6. Mix the frosting with enough green food coloring to make it bright green, then transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a plain tip.

  7. Arrange 3 double rows of pumpkins on top of cake and pipe the vines connecting the pumpkins.

  8. Freeze until ready to serve.

  9. Serve cold, and enjoy!
