Oreo Delight is a no-bake dessert that combines the beloved crunch of Oreo cookies with the creamy sweetness of a whipped mixture and chocolate pudding. It’s a

perfect treat for any occasion, from family gatherings to potlucks, and it’s loved by both kids and adults. This dessert layers the rich flavors and textures of Oreos, cream cheese, chocolate pudding, and Cool Whip, creating a decadent treat that’s both easy to make and delicious. Let’s dive into how you can create this irresistible dessert.

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 package of regular Oreos
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large package chocolate instant pudding
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 16 oz Cool Whip
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 ¾ cups milk
  • Reserve about 1 cup of crushed cookies to sprinkle on top

 

Preparation:

 

Step 1: Begin by finely crushing the Oreos. You can do this by placing the cookies in a large ziplock bag and rolling them with a rolling pin or using a food processor. This will be the base of your dessert, so ensure the cookies are evenly crushed.

Step 2: In a medium-sized bowl, combine the crushed Oreos (remember to set aside 1 cup for topping) with the melted butter. Mix well until all the cookie crumbs are moistened by the butter. Press this mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 inch dish, creating a firm base. Refrigerate this layer for about 10 minutes to set.

 

Step 3: For the next layer, use a large bowl to beat the softened cream cheese until it’s smooth and creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and beat until well combined. Fold in half of the Cool Whip gently until the mixture is smooth. Spread this cream cheese layer over the chilled Oreo base.

Step 4: In another bowl, whisk together the chocolate instant pudding mix and milk until the pudding is thickened. This should take about 5 minutes. Once thickened, carefully spread the pudding over the cream cheese layer. Allow this to sit for a few minutes to set slightly.

Step 5: Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the pudding layer, creating a smooth top. Sprinkle the reserved crushed Oreos over the Cool Whip. Refrigerate the dessert for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow it to set completely and flavors to meld.

 

COOKING Note:

Since this is a no-bake dessert, ensure that each layer has enough time to set before adding the next layer. This will help keep the layers distinct and make serving easier.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve the Oreo Delight chilled. You can cut it into squares or bars depending on your preference. For an extra touch of elegance, garnish each piece with a whole Oreo cookie or a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

Tips:

  • For a lighter version, consider using low-fat cream cheese, skim milk, and a light version of Cool Whip.
  • Ensure the cream cheese is at room temperature before mixing to avoid lumps.
  • For a crunchier base, don’t over-crush the Oreos. A bit of texture adds to the dessert’s appeal.
