Oreo Delight recipe

Some of you asked what Oreo Dessert is, and asked for the recipe. If you've ever made or tasted "Dirt Cake", this is very similar, except that it uses chocolate pudding rather than vanilla. Be sure and use more milk than you think you need when mixing the cream cheese and milk; otherwise you'll tear up your crumb crust when spreading the mixture.

Kids love this.

OREO DESSERT

1 pound of Oreos
1/4 cup melted margarine (not spread, but butter or margarine)
1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 12 ounce package Cool Whip
1 pkg instant chocolate pudding, prepared with milk

Crush cookies, reserving 1/2 cup crumbs for topping. Mix the remainder with the 1/4 cup of melted margarine. Press into 13X9 inch pan. I put this in the freezer for 10 minutes or so, to get it to set up solid for the next step.

Blend cream cheese and powdered sugar. Add a little milk till it is spreading consistency. Spread over crumbs in pan. Spread 1/2 of the Cool Whip over the cream cheese. Pour prepared pudding over Cool Whip. Top with remaining Cool whip and sprinkle with the reserved crumbs. Refrigerate until serving.
