that oreo stuff.

I’m not much of a summer gal. I blame it on the heat. And bees. And mosquitos. And summer clothes. Shorts and tanks are this pasty girl’s least favorite. I prefer the pits of fall and winter when I can cover my bandaid-colored skin with sweaters and jeans.

But there’s one saving grace every summer.

That oreo stuff.

For many moons, my momma has been making that oreo stuff every summer. It was the quintessential summer dessert growing up. It made all that sweat and pasty skin bearable. I love it. It’s the fiber to my summer being. This is my second favorite dessert of all time (second to the apple cake, no less). I mean, o.r.e.o.s. Can it get much better?

I needed a little something to wash down the turkey and dressing and winter pies and cakes. This did the trick. Most of you have probably made this dessert before or at least tried it at some church function. And it probably has a better name than ‘that oreo stuff’. My momma has been making this baking dish full of deliciousness for years and we’ve always simply called it ‘that oreo stuff’.

So without further ado, here’s the recipe, friends:

That Oreo Stuff

1 bag/box of Oreos
1 1/2 stick of butter
8 oz. cool whip
8 oz. cream cheese
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 small packages instant chocolate pudding
3 cups milk

First, crush up all of your oreos (I usually save about 3-4 oreos to crumble up on the top. And then I always eat 1 or 2. If you can make this dessert without sneaking and eating an oreo, then you are the queen on the world).

Then, add 1 stick of melted butter to the oreos and mix it around. Press the oreos into a 9×13 baking dish.

Next, mix the cool whip, cream cheese, and 1/2 stick of butter together. Then add the powdered sugar. Spread this over the crushed cookies. And, oops, I forgot to take pictures of the next steps. Probably had something to do with the fact that I kept sneaking and eating oreos.

In a bowl, mix the 2 packages of instant chocolate pudding and 3 cups of milk. Let it stand for about 5 minutes, then spread it over the cream cheese mixture. Add a thin layer of cool whip (I usually reserve about 4-5 tablespoons of the cool whip) and the 3-4 (or less, if you ate a few) crumbled cookies on top. Pop this baby in the fridge for a little while if you can stand it. And enjoy!

Have a blessed Tuesday 🙂

  1. Orea balls are also as AWESOME. I will get you the complete recipe, but you crush oreos, roll them into balls with cream cheese and dip in white chocolate. Excellent!!
