Oreo Layer Dessert

Pinterest just may be the death of me... I keep finding all of these outrageously delicious desserts... and then, of course, I just have to try them! I knew this Oreo dessert would be delicious, but it exceeded even my expectations. I've made it twice in 7 days and have gotten rave reviews each time. It's my husbands new favorite dessert. And best of all... it's easy!!
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Found on My Cupcake Journey via Pinterest

Oreo Layer Dessert

1 pkg of regular Oreos
1/2 c. of butter
1 lg box of instant chocolate pudding
2-8 oz cool whips **
8 oz. of cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar

Crush the whole package of cookies either with a food processor, or in a bag and a rolling pin. Save a 1/2 c. to sprinkle on top of dessert when it's done. Pour remaining crumbs in a 13x9 pan. Melt butter and pour into crumb mix. Stir it up good and press crumbs in bottom of pan to make a crust. Make chocolate pudding according to package directions and let it setup in the fridge. In a mixing bowl blend cream cheese until nice and smooth and then add powdered sugar, mix. Then fold in 1-8 oz thing of cool whip. Top oreo layer with cream cheese mix, then pudding, then your last 8 oz thing of cool whip, and then sprinkle remaining Oreo's on top. Cover and refridgerate until ready to serve.

**I forgot to buy 2 tubs of cool whip and only had one the second time I made this. I added the 1 tub I had to the cream cheese layer and then I whipped up some whipping cream for the top layer. It made it a little bit richer and more decadent! I think I like using whipping cream for the top layer instead of the cool whip. Try it each way and see which one you prefer.
