I tend to cram more activity than humanly possible into every waking minute of every typical day. Laundry, blog posts, errand running, pet feeding, kid chasing, dinner on the table and so on and so forth. It is extremely rare that I have the time or energy left to make a dessert to enjoy after dinner.
But we love dessert. LOVE it.
When it comes to quick and easy desserts, one of my go-to ingredients has always been COOL WHIP Whipped Topping. It’s not unusual to find a tub of COOL WHIP in my freezer so that at any given time, I can add a dollop to pudding, JELL-O, hot chocolate, fresh fruit and more. COOL WHIP lends itself to everyday desserts – which means it is quick and easy to make a special treat… even on those days when I have zero energy left.
For this challenge, I rounded up my ingredients, most of which I already had in the pantry and refrigerator. Not only is this dish delicious, it takes about 10 minutes to prepare (really)!
So here we go – let’s make a COOL WHIP Chocolate OREO Pudding Pie!
You will need:
- 1 tub of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping (thawed)
- 1 OREO Pie Crust
- 2 packages of chocolate instant pudding (4 servings per package)
- 2.5 cups of cold milk
- 9 OREO Cookies (4 crushed, 5 halved)
How to make:
- Pour milk into a large bowl. Add the pudding mix and beat with a wire wisk for 2 minutes or until well blended.
- Add crushed OREO Cookies.
- Stir in about half of the COOL WHIP, until just blended.
- Pour mixture into pie crust.
- Refrigerate for 4 hours or until pie has set.
- Decorate the top of the pie with the remaining COOL WHIP and cookie halves before serving.
This everyday dessert will compliment any event – from a neighborhood barbecue to a Tuesday night dinner at home. It’s also worth noting that the quick and easy prep required for this dessert means even an older kid or spouse can take over while you throw dinner together, take a relaxing bath, you get the idea.
Have fun with this recipe – feel free to experiment with other crusts, pudding flavors, etc. As long as you have your COOL WHIP base, you’re set!
