Recipe: Oreo Layer Dessert!

The other day I decided to try another recipe I found on Pinterest: Oreo Layer Dessert! This is one of the first items I ever pinned on Pinterest, and it looked like an easy recipe. I had all of the ingredients on hand, except I only have 1 small box of pudding rather than a large box; so I divided the recipe in half. For just me and my dad, this still made plenty!



  • 1 package of Oreos (Use regular, not double stuff. I save money by buying Target’s Market Pantry brand, which taste exactly the same.)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large or 2 small packages of instant chocolate pudding
  • 2 8-ounce containers of Cool Whip
  • 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Crush the cookies (cream and all) in a food processor or in a bag. Save 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top of finished dessert. Mix crumbs with melted butter and press mixture into a 9×13-inch cake pan.
  2. Prepare chocolate pudding according to package directions and put in refrigerator to set.
  3. Mix cream cheese until smooth. Add in powdered sugar and mix well. Fold in 1 container of Cool Whip. Spread this mixture on top of cookie crust.
  4. Pour pudding on top of cream cheese layer.
  5. Top with the other container of Cool Whip and sprinkle the 1/2 cup of cookie crumbs on top.
  6. Cover and refrigerate.
