Meanwhile, place chocolate and mint sandwich cookies in a large resealable plastic bag. Crush cookies slightly to create large crumbs. Remove baking pan from refrigerator and sprinkle with cookies.
If desired, make marzipan carrots. Dye marzipan by using orange gel food coloring (for carrot base) and green gel food coloring (for carrot tops). Place oval-shaped orange marzipan balls into the dirt cake. If desired, use a toothpick to give ridges to the carrot. For carrot leaves, roll out green marzipan with a rolling pin and cut out green carrot tops using a knife. Secure leaves onto carrot tops.
Garnish dirt cake with small mint leaves and leave a trail of "Easter eggs" by placing small bundles of pastel jelly beans, if desired.
