How to Make
Full steps on how to make this Oreo dessert is featured at the bottom of the post in the printable recipe card. This is a visual walk through on how it is made.
- Start by crushing your Oreo cookies. I placed in a Ziploc bag and used a rolling pin to crush the cookies.
- Pour all but 1/2 cup of cookies in the casserole dish. Melt butter and pour all over the cookies and set aside.
- Start by adding pudding and milk in the bowl and use a hand mixer to whip up till thickened.
- Next add in the cream cheese and sugar. Mix till combined.
- Add in the Cool Whip and then use a spatula to fold it into the mixture.
- Pour the mixture into casserole dish on top of the cookies.
- Then top off with the remaining cookies. Then cover and refrigerate for 4 hours until it is set.
Recipe Developer Tips For Success
- Make sure to take time to whip up the pudding until it is thickened. You need to do this to ensure you get it mixed well enough.
- Fold in the Cool Whip to ensure it is not deflating as you mix it up in the dessert.
- Allow your dessert to set up for at least 4 hours before you slice and serve this dessert up.
Refrigerate – You can refrigerate the Oreo pudding dessert in the fridge for 2-3 days. You will find the cookies will soften pretty quickly once it is refrigerated.
You are more than welcome to reach for a different type of cookie for this recipe. I find any sandwich cookie works wonderfully. Feel free to reach for your favorite flavored cookie.
For this dessert you have to use instant pudding. It is going to be the base for mixing up your base for this recipe. Now the flavor you can change up but the instant pudding is a must.
Go right ahead and make up this dessert a day in advance. Now, just leave the cookies on top off the dessert until you are about to serve up this dessert. Then crumble on top right before serving.
