Heavenly Mint Oreo Dessert

Once upon a time I made this little dessert called Heavenly Oreo Dessert. Oh wow. Little did I know how it would be so popular. But, duh. Think about it… Oreos, pudding, Cool Whip, butter. Of course everyone would love it. So then I made other versions. Lemon, Pumpkin and now Mint. Watch out, this will knock your socks off. For real.

I used Mint Oreo cookies and added some green food coloring to the cream cheese mixture. That’s all the mint I used. It was perfectly minty. If you like a stronger mint flavor you could add a dash of mint extract to the cream cheese mixture or pudding.

Ingredients
1/2 c. butter, melted
2 pkg. (3.9 oz each)  Chocolate Instant Pudding
3 1/4 c. cold milk 
2 containers (8 oz. each) Cool Whip
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar

Directions
  • Crush all Oreo cookies in a food processor until crushed. You could also put the cookies in a large resealable bag and crush using a rolling pin. 
  • Save 1/2 cup of the crumbs for the topping.
  •  Pour the remaining crumbs into a 9×13 dish and add the melted butter.
  • Stir and press into the bottom of the dish to make a crust. 
  • In a bowl, whisk together the pudding mix and milk.
  •  Set in the fridge for now. 
  • Blend cream cheese until smooth. 
  • Add powdered sugar.
  •  Mix and fold in one container of Cool Whip. 
  • Spread over the crust.
  •  Add pudding and spread over the cream cheese mixture. 
  • Top with the other Cool Whip.
  • Sprinkle the 1/2 c. Oreo crumbs over top.
  •  Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Refrigerate leftovers.

    Mandy,<br />I didn&#39;t see it in the directions but did you add green food dye to the first container of cool whip?
