The night or day before serving, cream butter and cream cheese. In another bowl, mix milk, pudding and whipped topping. Combine the mixtures.
Put a small piece of foil over the bottom of the flowerpot to cover the holes. Put one third of the cookie crumbs in the flowerpot. Next, add one half of the filling mixture. Finish the layers with crumbs, filling and top with crumbs. Refrigerate overnight.
Before serving, add gummy worms to top of dessert. Use the trowel as the serving utensil.
For Halloween make a Dirt Cemetery:
Put the filling is an oblong glass pan (9 x 11 inches). Top with the crumb mixture. For the tombstones use flat oblong shaped cookies like Milanos. Use a tube of black gel icing to write R.I.P. on the tombstones. Gently push tombstones in the Dirt. For ghosts in your cemetery, use spoonfuls of whipped topping slightly swirled. Use the icing again to give the ghosts eyes. Sprinkle with candy corn or have the gummy worms coming in and out of the Dirt.
