Oreo Layer Dessert...

...Or should I say HEAVEN!?  I used to make this dessert all the time years ago.  I haven't made it such a long time, because believe it or not, I got Oreo Layered OUT!  I made it so much because it is just so dang yummy.  My love for the stuff is back.  I promise this time I won't make it on a weekly basis and eat half the pan each time.  This is such a great summer time dessert.  It is so fluffy and delicious.  Give it a try!



Oreo Layer Dessert
1 pkg of regular Oreos
1/2 c. of butter
1 lg box of instant chocolate pudding
2-8 oz cool whips
8 oz. of cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar

Crush the whole package of cookies either with a food processor, or in a bag and a rolling pin.  Save a 1/2 c. to sprinkle on top of dessert when it's done.  Pour remaining crumbs in a 13x9 pan.  Melt butter and pour into crumb mix.  Stir it up good and press crumbs in bottom of pan to make a crust.  Make chocolate pudding according to package directions and let it setup in the fridge.  In a mixing bowl blend cream cheese until nice and smooth and then add powdered sugar, mix.  Then fold in 1-8 oz thing of cool whip.  Top oreo layer with cream cheese mix, then pudding, then your last 8 oz thing of cool whip, and then sprinkle remaining Oreo's on top.  Cover and refridgerate until ready to serve. 

Hope you enjoy this dessert as much as my family does.  Have a great Wednesday!

  4. This looks so good. I am going to try to make this sugar-free...not sure what to do with the Oreos, but hopefully, I'll figure something out!

    1. If you want sugar free, you shouldn't attempt this recipe. It would lose its purpose!

  8. I added 1/2 cup of peanut butter and a pkg of mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups chopped into chunks into the pudding before I spread it onto the cookies. Really, really rich.

  12. Do you scrape the filling out of the Oreos or leave it in?

  14. I was wondering about the 2 8oz of cool whip... I bought a tub of cool whip and it's 1 liter do you happen to know how much of that 1 liter I put in? haha I am so bad at geometrics! also I'm in canada so we use cups not ounces ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  15. nevermind I'm such a tool! instead of searching I ask you! haha :-P I found out that 16 ounces is two cups! hahaha

  16. what size pan do you use? 9x13?? sounds to big to fit in a pie pan, or does it just layer high?

  21. I wonder ... not to be a party pooper, but to guiltlessly eat more ... (ha ha)
    Use "Reduced Fat Oreos" (they are good!) and "Fat Free Cool Whip". (Tastes good to me and we use it for everyone on Pumpkin Pie at Thanksgiving and no one complains) Might not want to mess with the butter though as margerine doesn't always come out the same. Could use "1/3 Less Fat Philadelphia cream cheese", too. That would help "Skinny" it up a little! :-) Just a thought ... and when I make it, that's how I'll do it.

  28. Yum! A friend at work made this for her family this weekend and loved it! I forgot that I have to take a dessert to a meeting tonight so I came home right after school and whipped this up... Still have an hour until my meeting but I know they will love it!

    Thanks For The Recipe!!!!

  29. Sorry... I forgot to say I added some mini chocolate chips to the pudding part!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I made this today.... The pudding never set though. I finally just poured it in the pan and finished it off, hoping it would set but it never did:/ (even after sitting in the frige for about 6 hours)-- so it was all runny and not very appealing :/ I was disappointed.

    1. I used 3 cups of (2%) milk per the box instructions for instant chocolate pudding. It set up fine and worked well. Maybe you used skim milk? I guess that could make it thinner? Or maybe you accidentally used the cook-n-serve pudding mix?

  31. Ok i made this dessert today, and i am so excited to try it, @ the wife,,, since i read what you wrote, i only put in 21/2 cups of milk in instead of 3. It does show on the package that if you are making it for like a pie you only put in 21/2 cups of millk, and mine so far it actually set up really nice and it spread across there nicely, I feel bad that your had some issues, but i will let everyone know what me and my hubby think of this after tonight. Wish us luck. lol

  33. I made this for a block party today and it was the dessert that got all the praise over my cupcakes and someone else's homemade strawberry ice cream! There were 20+ people and I took 1/3 of the dish back home. Loved it myself and I will be making this again when asked to bring a dessert to any large gathering! Thanks!

  34. I made this for my coworkers and everyone RAVED about how delicious it was - I *almost* felt guilty about how easy it was to make ;-)

  35. I wonder how it would taste with a brownie as the bottom layer instead of the crushed oreos? Don't get me wrong, this looks amazing - I just love brownies :)

    1. It was a hit! People were adding whipped cream from the other dessert to my pan to gather as much pudding as they could from the sides :) They nearly licked the pan!

      Again...my kind of dessert!
      Thanks!

      Delete
    2. I would have totally licked the pan!

      Delete
  39. This was delicious! I made a small mistake, I thought I'd be sneaky and put it in an 8x8 pan to make the crust thicker. I didn't realize that I was making every layer thicker until I got to the top and didn't have room for the second tub of coolwhip! lol oh well! I'll know for the next time I make it! :)

  40. This was AWESOME!!! It turned out perfectly. Thanks for the recipe. Can't wait for a good "excuse" to make it again! (o:

  41. I was wondering what "one large package of pudding" means? Would it be okay if I just used two regular sized packages of instant pudding?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Probably would be ok. Might be a little to much?

  42. Wonder if this could be frozen and served later. Let it thaw first and sprinkle reserved cookies on after it thaws out? Anyone try this?

  43. The creamcheese layer is a recipe I use for pies (tub coolwhip, 8oz cr cheese, 3/4 conf sug into 2 graham crusts and top with cheesecake toppings of your choice) Yum!

    1. This is the same recipe (plus a little bit of vanilla) that my grandmother uses for her cheesecake recipe. No eggs, no baking. It's fabulous!

  44. I made a sugar free version of this replacing the powdered sugar with a cup of stevia and a tsp. of cornstarch and sugar free oreos and sugar free pudding. It was so good. The cream cheese layer by itself had an aftertaste but mixed in with the pudding you couldn't even tell! Thanks for the recipe!!!

  49. How many cups does a pkg of crushed oreos make?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thanks very much for the recipe. My husband and I loved it. I used less butter in the crust though. I found it was better the next day. Because it was only me and my hubby eating it I had loads left over. My husband liked it too much to let me give it away so he has frozen the rest for next weekend. Hope it defrosts ok!

  53. Hey just wondering could I use pre packaged pudding, or is it better with the instant??

    Replies
    1. I've never tried it with the prepackaged, but I don't see why you couldn't use it. It might not hold up as good as the instant though. I don't know? If you try it, let me know how it goes.

  54. Thought I'd add to the plethora of good reviews :) I made this for a gathering with friends last week, and I literally had 3 girls corner me demanding a recipe! I made so much because I wanted to take some home, but there wasn't any! Great recipe! So easy and fast and freaking delicious!!

  56. Great recipe! Thank you! I made this last month for a gathering and had rave reviews! For July 4th, I used this recipe with a couple of tweaks...I used lemon pudding, and the limited edition lemon twist oreos. It was a success, and everyone was asking for more! Next time I make, I will try the mint oreos.

  58. My coworker made this with reduced fat ingredients and we had no clue until she told us. It was amazing!

  59. What's the cream you put on? Whatever it is I can't get it where I live so what can I use?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Cool Whip is a pre-made whipped cream. You could purchase whipping cream add confectioners sugar and add this instead. The only problem with using whipping cream is that it is not as stable. It won't hold up as well in heat or for more than one day. You would want to use it up that day. Good luck!!

  60. Do you use the cool whip frozen or thawed?

    1. Hi Katie! You definitely need to thaw it first. :)

  62. I have a dangerous addiction to Oreo's and this was by far the best Oreo cake I've ever had! It was so easy and simple to make, I love that there is no baking (which means I don't have to turn the oven on during the hot summer days). Although this cake can be eaten anytime of the year, Its light, fluffy and cool texture makes it a perfect dessert to enjoy with family and friends out on the patio. It has the perfect amount of sweetness for just about anyone to enjoy, I highly recommend trying out this dessert!

  65. Thanks for the recipe. Just made this for Thanksgiving dessert and it was certainly a hit. It was a bit too sweet, though, so next time I'm planning to cut out half of the sugar.
