Oreo Layer Dessert

Oh Oreos…

What more is there to say?  Who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashioned Oreo?  Man!  I could really go for some Oreos right now.  Too bad we don’t have any :(

I was supposed to bring a dessert for the ward campout a couple weeks ago and in light of the Pinterest Challenge I was doing (Yes, I did it.  Maybe not every day but I did what I could and made a few yummy things) I looked up a recipe from my dessert board. 

I’m pretty sure it was a smash hit considering that it was the first dessert gone and trust me, there were MANY! 

And it was so easy, too!!  Didn’t even have to turn on the oven!  {Quality of pics is poor… I only had my cell phone handy}

Oreo Layer Dessert

1 pkg of regular Oreos, crushed (divided)

1/2 c. of butter

1 lg box of instant chocolate pudding

2-8 oz Whipped topping (Cool Whip)

8 oz. of cream cheese, softened

1 c. powdered sugar

Crush a whole package of cookies in a ziploc bag with a rolling pin.  Reserve 1/2 cup.  Pour crushed cookies into a bowl, melt butter and pour over crumbs. Stir and press crumbs into 13x9 pan. Make chocolate pudding according to package directions.  Refrigerate until set up.  Blend softened cream cheese with powdered sugar and fold in 1-8 oz tub of whipped topping.  Spread evenly over crushed Oreo layer in pan, then spread pudding evenly over cream cheese layer.  Finally, top evenly with second tub of whipped topping.  Sprinkle reserved crushed cookies over the top.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I substituted Who Knew cookies for the Oreos (healthier and just as good!) I also made my own whipped cream from organic milk and cane sugar and used powdered cane sugar in the whip. No hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn-syrup and it only took 5 min more to make! The Who Knews were cheaper so where I saved money I was able to buy organic milk and cream!!
