1 box (18.25 ounce size) German chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
1 box (18.25 ounce size) white cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
2 packages (3.5 ounce size) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 package (12 ounce size) vanilla sandwich cookies
3 drops green food coloring
1 package (12 ounce size) tootsie rolls


Prepare cake mixes and bake according to package directions (any size pan).

Prepare pudding according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.

Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup add a few drops of green food coloring and mix.

When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs, and the chilled pudding. You probably won't need all of the pudding, you want the cake to be just moist, not soggy. Line a clean, new kitty litter box with a kitty litter liner.

Put cake mixture into box. Put half of the unwrapped tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until softened. Shape the ends so that they are no longer blunt, and curve the tootsie rolls slightly. Bury tootsie rolls randomly in the cake and sprinkle with half of the remaining cookie crumbs.

Sprinkle a small amount of the green colored cookie crumbs lightly over the top. Heat 3 or 4 of the tootsie rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with some of the green cookie crumbs. Heat the remaining tootsie rolls until pliable and shape as before. Spread all but one randomly over top of cake mixture. Sprinkle with any remaining cookie crumbs. Hang the remaining tootsie roll over side of litter box and sprinkle with a few green cookie crumbs.

Serve a clean, new the pooper scooper for a gross Halloween dessert.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This is such a hit, doesn't get eaten much, I too have taken most of it home. Only a couple of people dare to try it, but they like it when they do try. Getting them to try is the hard part, but what a conversation piece!!! I put this in the floor at a party by the kitchen table and listened to how people talked about the hostess and her "dirty" litter box next to the dining room table. A big hit at parties, but don't get your feelings hurt, you WILL be taking most of it home with you!

I made this cake 2 years ago for a party. My friends were so grossed out by the look of it, that they couldn't eat it. Out of all the party goers, only 3 of them ate it, and LOVED IT. I used spice cake in place of the german chocolate cake, and it gave it a flavor like an Entenmann's Coffee Crumb Cake. It was awesome. I ended up bringing it home from the party and my family devoured it. I plan to make it again this year for work and see how it does with my co-workers. I highly recommends this recipe for a really delicious gross looking Halloween treat! :)

I made this cake for my company potluck on Halloween last year. Only a couple of people dared to eat it but when they did, boy was it a hit. The best part was they kept saying, "Oh, it's so gross, but it tastes so freakin' good!" I definitly recomend making this. I have never had so much fun grossing out my family and co-workers with this recipes!
