THE INGREDIENTS LIST:
24 Oreo cookies.
6 Tbsp.Of unsalted butter; melted.
An 8-oz block.Of cream cheese (softened to room temp).
1 Cup.Of powdered sugar.
2 pkgs.Of instant chocolate pudding mix
3 ½ Cups.Of cold milk.
An 8-oz container.Of whipped topping.
Additional crushed Oreo cookies for garnish (optional).
To begin, add 24 Oreo cookies to a food processor and pulse several times until the cookies are thoroughly ground. Stir the cookie crumbs and melted butter together in a large basin until the crumbs are equally covered.
Fill a 9×13-inch baking dish with the mixture and press down to make the crust. Be careful to pack it tightly and uniformly. While you make the next layer, chill the dish in the fridge so it can solidify.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add the powdered sugar slowly while continuing to beat. Cover the Oreo base with a smooth, creamy layer made from the cream cheese mixture.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the instant chocolate pudding mix and cold milk for about 2 minutes until the pudding thickens. Wait a few minutes so it can be set up a little. Once the chocolate pudding has hardened, pour it evenly over the cream cheese layer.
Spread the softly beaten, thawed topping gently over the chocolate pudding layer. A spatula will help you spread it around evenly.
Oreo Delight is best when refrigerated for at least 4 hours, but ideally overnight, so cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge. This lets the dessert set and the flavors combine, making for a tasty and well-balanced end product.
Just before serving, decorate the Oreo Delight with some extra crushed Oreo cookies for added texture and visual appeal. Serve cold and cut into squares. See the eager expressions on their faces as they dig in, and hear the squeals of pleasure as they devour each bite.
VARIATIONS AND TIPS:
Try different kinds of Oreo cookies. Classic Oreos work great in this recipe, but you can also try Golden Oreos, Mint Oreos, or even Double Stuf Oreos to give the dessert a unique twist.
Customize the toppings: You can get creative with the garnishes by adding chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, or even sprinkles over the whipped topping. This will make the dish look better and give it more taste.
Make it a family project by letting them help you prepare it by crushing the cookies, mixing the cream cheese layer, or decorating the finished treat. It’s a fun way to get closer and make memories that will last.
