Oreo Delight is one of my most favorite desserts. The light, fluffy ingredients and crushed Oreos make it the best of all Oreo desserts.If you take nothing away from this blog, I hope you’ll at least try this recipe. As a kid, this was my favorite thing my Mom would make for me. I have the most fond memories of coming home to a plate of Oreo Delight as a reward for grade school accomplishments, like acing a spelling test or making the “all A” honor roll.
And this was quite the treat because, for my family, this was an expensive recipe! I never had a single clue that we didn’t have much money or that I had less than my classmates. My parents sacrificed so much and my dad worked crazy long hours so my mom could stay home and care for us… and make this beloved Oreo Delight.
I have such vivid memories of my Mom letting me play hooky from school. I’d scrounge up coins out of the sofa cushions, and we would run to the McDonald’s for hamburgers. Those were fun times, never sad ones! Now as an adult and a dad myself, I realize and appreciate how much my parents did without so they could give me everything I needed and then some. I love my parents and how much they love me. And this little recipe was one small way my Mom would say, “I Love You!” I hope you enjoy!
What is Oreo Delight?
Oreo Delight is an easy, no bake dessert rich in flavor and light in density. Typically, Oreo Delight features a softened cream cheese and whipped cream mixture separated by layers of chocolate pudding with lots and lots of crushed Oreo cookies. Top this layered, fluffy dessert off with the remaining crushed Oreos, and you have the perfect flavor-filled, chocolatey dessert every generation will love!
1 (14.3-ounce) package regular Oreo cookies
6 tablespoons butter, melted
2 (8-ounce) containers frozen Cool Whip, thawed
1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 (5.9-ounce) package instant chocolate pudding
2¾ cups milk
Step 1: Crush the entire bag of Oreo cookies using a food processor.
Step 2: Set aside a cup of Oreo crumbs and then mix the remaining crumbs with melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom of a pan so that they form a crust.
Step 3: Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until it becomes smooth, then add powdered sugar and mix well. Fold in a container of Cool Whip, mix well and then spread the mixture evenly on top of the crust.
Step 4: Use a whisk to mix the chocolate pudding with milk, then allow it to thicken. Spread the pudding over the previous layer, and spread the other container of Cool Whip on top.
Step 5: Top it with the reserved Oreo crumbs. Keep in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours and serve.
