I fell in love with this recipe years ago, and first published it in March 2015. I decided it needed a revamp this year, the world needs to be reminded of this amazing dessert.

If I’m in charge of bringing dessert, this is 100% what I will bring every time. It’s impossible to mess up and everyone absolutely loves it.

Not to mention, you can FREEZE this! When you’re ready to serve it, let it defrost in the fridge overnight. It’s a miracle! I am going to brag about this fact this several times throughout the post, just so ya know. 😉

How to Make Oreo Crust

  • Creating an Oreo crust begins by crushing Oreo cookies (Double Stuf or Regular) in a food processor.

👉This is the mini food processor that I have. I like it because it doesn’t take up a lot of space, although it does require me to process things in batches.

  • The Oreo crumbs are then combined with melted butter and pressed onto the bottom of a casserole dish/baking pan.
  • Let it set for a few minutes and you are good to go!

Creating a Smooth Cream Cheese Mixture

  • Room temperature cream cheese is absolutely necessary if you are looking for a smooth consistency when you mix it with other ingredients. This goes for all desserts, cheesecake included.
  • The cream cheese should be mixed on its own prior to being mixed with the additional ingredients.
  • If your cream cheese is still a little cool, you’ll notice small lumps when you begin to mix it with the other ingredients and from here it’s nearly impossible correct that. The taste will still be great however, the recipe is far from ruined. 😊

Instant Pudding vs. Cooked Pudding

  • Instant Pudding: Quicker, more convenient
  • Cooked Pudding: Takes longer, tastes better. Needs to cool completely before being added to this pie.

Freezing This Dessert

  • You can freeze this dessert for later use. Before serving, let it defrost in the refrigerator overnight.
  • I like to make this for my family and freeze portion sizes in storage containers. I take one or two out at a time, let them defrost overnight, and there’s an easy dessert ready for the next day!

5 from 7 ratings
This decadent no-bake Oreo Delight has four irresistible layers that begin with an Oreo crust, a sweet cream cheese mixture, chocolate pudding, and Cool Whip! It's easy to throw together and can even be frozen for future use!

Ingredients

  • 1 package Oreo cookies, regular or double stuffed
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 16 oz. Cool Whip, separated
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners/powdered sugar
  • 5.9 oz. chocolate instant pudding*
  • 2 ¾ cup milk

Instructions

  • Crush the whole bag of Oreos in a  food processor. (You can also do this by hand if needed.)
  • Combine the Oreos and melted butter until well-combined. Press the mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan to make a crust.
  • Using hand mixer, beat the cream cheese in a large bowl for 1 minute. Room temperature cream cheese is necessary for this layer to have a smooth consistency when combined with the next set of ingredients. Otherwise, lumps will form.
  • Add HALF of of Cool Whip, and reserve the second half for the topping. 
  • Add the powdered sugar. Beat until well-combined and smooth. Spread across the top of the Oreo crust.
  • Whisk the instant pudding and the milk for 2 minutes. Let it set for 5 minutes, then spread over the Cool Whip/sugar mixture.
  • Top with remaining 8 ounces of Cool Whip. 
  • Refrigerate for a minimum of 60 minutes prior to serving. You can also refrigerate it overnight.
  • Top with strawberries just before serving if desired. You can also add shaved chocolate to the top. 

Notes

  • *Cooked pudding may be used instead, be sure to wait until it's chilled before adding it to the pan. 
  • This dessert can be frozen for future use. Before serving, let it defrost in the refrigerator overnight.

  1. have made this dozens of times since we don’t have a family it gets watery on bottom husband is one one who eats sweets should I freeze every night

    • Good Morning- That’s due to the pudding, I am reading up on some tips to prevent it from happening. Make sure that you are mixing it REALLY week. Try letting it sit by itself in the fridge for an hour before adding it to the dessert. And don’t make it too far ahead of time, serving it on the same day that you make it is definitely ideal. Also make sure you’re not using sugar free and that you’re mixing it with whole milk. Here is a thread with more information. Thank you!

  2. Would love this cookbook

  3. Mug cakes are so dangerous. Craving satisfied in 5 mins or less, but oh so yummy!!

  4. this cookbook would be awesome!!!

  5. Ohhh my gosh… This looks amazing!! s it Easter yet?! I need some of this in my life asap!

    • Oh BTW, I meant to say, GO YOU for giving up sugar for lent, I used to do that, back when I was a good girl with self control, DANG!

  6. What a great recipe! Although she did not use oreos (which would only make it better!) my aunt’s specialty was this dish at family gatherings………I just love it! Thank you so much for submitting to Yum Goggle and please keep submitting!

    • Aw that’s awesome! My mom used to make something similar too, I bet there are lots of delicious variations! I love it 🙂

  7. Love this cookbook and this recipe looks so tasty.

  8. My husband – coincidentally named Mark as well – does the EXACT same thing. It makes it so hard to decide what to make next! Glad you found such a great recipe to make though, I love Oreo desserts!

    • No way! What is with those Mark men of ours!? It’s crazy!! (I love Oreo desserts too)- I don’t realize how obsessed I am with something until I see a serious pattern on my blog. My obsessions are clearly cheesecake.. and Oreos!

  9. Ahhhhhh great idea for a cookbook!! 😀 Hubby isn’t a big dessert fan… I know, what is wrong with him?!?! So I don’t bake all that often, since I’d be left with a whole cake and only me to eat it… which I totally would, but then I’d need bigger pants lol. Oh and your Oreo dessert looks fantastic! Makes me want it, like now 😀

  10. What a great idea for a cookbook! I frequently skip making dessert but would love to have some recipes for quick, small servings. This cookbook sounds perfect for me. And as for the creamy, cheesy, white-sauced casseroles, your hubby just doesn’t know what he’s missing. I’d happily chow down with you on those! How could he not love them, too?!

    • Isn’t it great Teslaca? So when I tried making a mug cake myself I kind of had my reservations about it actually WORKING- but it DOES! And the author’s instructions are really good. What an awesome Cookbook idea indeed!
