Heavenly Oreo Dessert

Heavenly Oreo Dessert

A few weeks ago, I was trying to find a quick and simple dessert that I could make to take to dinner at my parent’s house. So where did I look? None other than the black hole of everything....Pinterest. I came across this this ah-mazing recipe for Heavenly Oreo Dessert from a cutesy little food blog Life in the Lofthouse.

Not only was this dessert only six ingredients, it also had a reputation. And that is what I always look for. I love knowing that when I take a dish somewhere, people ask for the recipe and ask for me to "make it again next time". So, when I am browsing for a recipe, that is what I look out for. And that is exactly what I found.

The BEST Oreo dessert there is...

The BEST Oreo dessert there is...

I have made this dessert three times now and every single time, it gets GONE. Gee-Oh-eN-Eee, GONE. I have had people seek me out just to get the recipe at the potlucks I bring it to and I have had people special request it for personal get-togethers afterwards. It has just the right amount of whipped deliciousness and chocolatey goodness for any sweet tooth or chocoholic alike!

So here it is folks, the too-good-to-pass-up, no good for your skinny jeans, shut- your -mama’s- mouth , Heavenly  Oreo Dessert.

 

In Your Basket:

1 package of Double-stuffed Oreos. (you can buy the original, but trust me… you want the extra icing! 😉)

½ cup of Butter, melted ( 1 stick)

2 packages of 3.9 ounce Instant Chocolate pudding mix

3 ¼ cup cold milk

2(8 oz) blocks of softened cream cheese

1 cup of powdered sugar

 

Mix It Up!

1.       Place the entire Oreo contents into a gallon sized Ziploc bag and crush cookies until they are broken down into small chunks. You can use a rolling pin, a wooden spoon etc, just make sure you do not pulverize the cookies- you want chunks, not powder.

2.       Set half of the crushed cookies to the side. Pour the other half of the cookie crumbsinto a 9''x13” baking dish. Melt butter and pour over the cookie crumbs in the dish and mix well to fully coat and combine. Press into the pan to form your crust. Set Aside.

3.       In a small mixing bowl, whisk together pudding mixes and milk. Cover and place in the fridge.

4.       In a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese until it is smooth. Slowly add the confectionery sugar until well blended. Fold one container of cool whip into the cream cheese mixture. Spread mixture over cookie crust.

5.       Layer the chocolate pudding over the cream cheese mixture. Add remaining cool whip container to the top of the pudding layer. Sprinkle the remaining cookie crumbs over the top of the dessert.

6.       Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

7.        Last but not least, Enjoy!!!
