Candy Land Dessert

This pudding and ice cream dessert is a family favorite!  Dirt pudding is everywhere, but this recipe puts a rich twist on a common cookie and pudding dessert.  I asked my husband to describe this recipe and he said, "It's DELICIOUS!"

  • 10 oz Lorna Doone Cookies crushed
  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 2 small pkg instant vanilla pudding - 3.9 oz ea
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream
  • 5 Heath Candy Bars crushed
  • 8 oz whipped topping


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Mix crushed cookies and melted butter together, cover bottom of 9 x 13 pan.  Bake 15 minutes.  Let cool.
  • Mix pudding and milk.  Let thicken.  Stir in softened ice cream.  Spread on crust then cover with whipped topping.  
  • Sprinkle on crushed candy bars.  Store in refrigerator, not freezer.


  • Allow crust to cool completely before spreading ice cream and pudding mixture over it - a warm crust will melt this layer
  • Ensure whipped topping is defrosted for easier spreading so that you don't dip into the pudding layer
  • Lorna Doone cookies can be expensive and difficult to find, so vanilla wafers can also work if needed
