Crush 1 pound of Oreo cookies until very fine. I used a food processor to do this; however, you may put them in a Ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin, if you like. Place 1/3 of the crushed Oreo cookies in the bottom of the large, clear bowl. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, beat 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, ½ cup softened butter, and 1 cup confectioner's sugar until smooth. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat 2 small packages of white chocolate pudding mix with 3 cups milk for 2 minutes. Let sit for about 5 minutes for the white chocolate pudding to firm up. Gently fold the cream cheese-butter-confectioner's sugar mixture into the white chocolate pudding, until blended. Layer 1/3 of this mixture on top of the Oreo cookie crumbs in the large glass bowl. You may start adding a few gummy worms with each layer, saving a few to decorate the top. Continue to layer 1/3 of Oreo cookie crumbs and 1/3 of the pudding mixture (and gummy worms), until you have 3 layers of cookie crumbs and 3 layers of pudding mixture. Place a few colorful gummy worms on top. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 4 hours. To serve, spoon some of all layers into a dessert dish. Watch the fun as everyone discovers their gummy worms! For a more serious approach, omit the gummy worms, and serve this as Pudding Filled Oreo Cake. It is truly a delicious cake, and deserves more attention than just a novelty cake! Enjoy! Love, Betty
