The dessert my grandson requested is pretty easy to make. There's just one trick: Chill the first layer well (the Oreo crumbs and butter) before spreading the cream cheese mixture over it. Also use enough milk with the cream cheese to make it really spreadable. Otherwise you will end up losing your temper as the crumbs lift up and mix themselves in with the cream cheese.
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 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.
OK, here's another of our favorite family recipes:
