OREO Cookie Pudding Dessert
Boy oh boy, do you EVER have to try this recipe if you're an Oreo cookie lover. M'mmm, it's so delicious! I made it to take to a friend's house on Superbowl Sunday and it sure was a hit :) I think we all went back for seconds!
Let me just pass along that I used store brand ingredients for almost everything listed and it turned out quite well - so don't feel you HAVE TO use what's listed in the recipe. Just tellin' ya - for whatever it's worth.
OREO COOKIE PUDDING DESSERT
1 stick of butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup confectioners powdered sugar
1 large package instant chocolate pudding
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 package OREO cookies
1 (8 ounce) tub Cool Whip
In a food processor chop OREO cookies into fine pieces. Reserve 1/2 cup cookie crumbs; set aside. Cut butter into fine pieces and add to cookie crumbs; mix. Spread the crumb mixture in a 9x13 pan to create crust. In a mixing bowl, add cream cheese and powdered sugar; beat until well blended. Gently fold in half a tub of the Cool Whip; spread over crust. In a small bowl, make chocolate pudding according to package directions; spread over cream cheese mixture to create the next layer. Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the chocolate pudding. Sprinkle the reserved cookie crumbs on top. Refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving. YIELD: 10-12 servings.
Tell me if you try it and what you think!
