Both of my sons normally request this dessert for their birthday. Tonia doesn't care for Oreos (unbelievable) so for her I would use a different base.
*1 (15.5 ounce) package Oreo cookies
*1/2 cup butter, melted
*1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
*1 cup powdered sugar
*1 (12 ounce) container cool whip, thawed & divided
*3 (4 ounce) boxes instant chocolate pudding
*2 cups whole milk
~Crush Oreo cookies until they are almost a powder form.
~Remove a 1/4 cup of crushed Oreos and set aside.
~Mix remaining crushed Oreo cookies and melted butter.
~Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan.
~Cream softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, & 1/2 of the thawed cool whip.
~Spread cool cream cheese mixture over top of the Oreo crust.
~Mix pudding & milk together until thick and mixed well.
~Spread pudding mixture carefully over cream cheese layer (I normally will just drop in small spoonfuls).
~Spread the remaining cool whip over the pudding layer.
~Sprinkle the 1/4 crushed Oreos over top of the whip cream.
~Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
`substitute chocolate pudding with whatever flavor is your favorite (I have a couple that love pistachio pudding).
`substitute oreo cookies with, vanilla sandwich cookies, or a graham cracker crust. You really could use any of your favorite cookies for the crust.
**I will often make this with one end of the dessert chocolate pudding and the other end with pistachio pudding.
