Yield

1 serving

This simple layered chocolate dessert comes together quickly and will disappear even faster. A chocolate cookie crust is followed by a layer of cream cheese icing and chocolate pudding and then topped with whipped cream and chocolate chips for a dessert that looks impressive without all the hassle.

Ingredients

  • 1 package chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos), crushed
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1, 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons cold milk, divided
  • 1, 12-ounce tub Cool Whip
  • 1, 5.9-ounce package Instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, semisweet or milk

How to Make It

  1. Add 36 chocolate cookies to a large zip-top plastic bag and crush, using a rolling pin or meat mallet, until fine crumbs form.

  2. Transfer crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in melted butter. Transfer the mixture to a 9x13 baking dish. Press crumbs into the bottom of pan. Place in refrigerator to chill while working on other layers.

  3. Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons milk and mix well. Stir in 1 1/4 cups Cool Whip. Spread mixture over cookie crust.

  4. In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until pudding begings to thicken. Spread mixture over previous layer. Allow the dessert to rest for 5 minutes so the pudding can firm up further.

  5. Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle evenly with mini chocolate chips. Place in freezer for 1 hour or in refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
