First and foremost, whoever came up with the combination of cream cheese and powdered sugar is a genius. Would naming my next child after them be a bit much? With my new found love of baking, this is becoming a favorite of mine.
This is family favorite that my sister usually makes. She is very creative. She puts it into a flower pot and mixes gummy worms into it...ok, not a stretch, but, it looks darn cute. I am not that creative, but, since it is Halloween, I thought it had the potential to be spooky, scary or Halloween-ish.
I'm not sure that my initial idea was met, but, it does has a Halloween theme.
Also, it's delicious. You will eat several bowls of this at a time..you've been warned :)
Prep Time: 00:20
Ingredients (Serves: 8)
- 8oz cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 1/2 cups col milk
- 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 12 oz whipped topping - thawed
- 16 oz Oreos or a similar creme filled sandwich cookie
Crush cookies in a food processor or blender until cookies are finely crushed. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, mix cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes. Let it sit for a few minutes (2-3).
Slowly pour pudding into the cream cheese mixture.
Then, fold in whip topping.
The recipe is large enough to fill a 13 x 9 baking dish, but, any type of dish can be used. Layer the bottom of your dish with crushed cookies, then, spread pudding mixture on top. Keep layering until your dish is filled.
Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving
Keep leftovers covered in refrigerator.
