This is my mom's secret weapon.
Every holiday, every family get together- this is her most requested dish.
And the best part is that it's SO easy.
There's no baking involved; just prepare each layer and assemble!
Here's what you'll need:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
6 tbsp butter, melted
2 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 pkg instant chocolate pudding mix
4 cups milk
optional- Oreo cookies
First, combine the pudding mix with cold milk. Whisk for a couple of minutes until it thickens
Stick it in the fridge to set until you need it later.
Mix your graham cracker crumbs with sugar and melted butter. Once combined, press into a clear dish- you'll want to see all the layers!
Beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until soft and smooth.
Spread over the crust.
Here you'll notice that I got in a big hurry and stopped taking pictures of every step.
Imagination is key, here.
Pull your pudding out of the fridge. If you'd like, crumble Oreo cookies into it and mix it all together. Then spread that over the cream cheese layer.
Finally, empty your container of Cool Whip over the top and smooth out. You can garnish with cookie crumbs, but I like the simplicity of smoothed Cool Whip.
And that's done!
If you have individual dessert glasses or martini glasses or even shot glasses, this would be simple to prepare in individual portions for an impressive presentation.
For this, press crust into the bottom of the glass.
Put each cream cheese, pudding and Cool Whip in individual Zip Lock bags.
Cut off a bottom corner of the bag and squeeze each layer into dish.
Garnish with an Oreo!
And seriously if anyone wants to buy me a camera, the iPod pics could be much improved
But you get the idea, right? :)
