Oreo Surprise


I have come back to the land of the living. Blogging has not been in the cards for me these last few months. But I'm back and determined to try some new recipes...including some gluten free! This recipe is from my friend Tanya. Thanks for sharing, Tanya! This is definitely a keeper. I actually haven't made it yet. Caroline has made it a couple of times and it is a huge hit. There was one change we made. Instead of using one large box of instant chocolate pudding, we used one small vanilla & one small chocolate.

Ingredients:

1 lg pkg crushed Oreos
1 stick butter, melted
1 lg container cool whip
1 lg box instant chocolate pudding
1 1/2  c powdered sugar
8 oz cream cheese

Directions:

Crush up whole Oreos in a ziploc bag (use rolling pin or whatever). Combine crushed Oreos & butter to make a crust & spread it in a 13x9 pan.  Reserve 1/4 c. Oreos for the top.  Put into fridge.  Mix pudding according to pkg.  Layer onto Oreo crust.  Combine sugar & cream cheese.  Soften in cool whip once it is combined, saving some for a top layer.  Put mixture onto pudding.  Top w/remaining cool whip & sprinkle with the 1/4 cup Oreos.  Eat and enjoy or refrigerate!

This is "Robert Redford" aka "Dessert" but with an oreo crust. LOVE IT!! What a great twist. I'll for sure be trying this one.
Robert Redford is made with one box vanilla, one box chocolate. Funny you made that change.
Thanks for the great recipe.
