Oreo Pudding Cake
- 1 box cake mix – white or chocolate, prepared according to instructions
- 1 box instant pudding mix, prepared according to instructions
- 1 package Oreos
- 1 container of whipped topping
Prepare cake mix, bake in a 9 x 13 pan. Allow to cool slightly.
While cake is baking, place most of the Oreos in a zip-lock bag.
You’ll notice I said “most” – go ahead and set aside a few Oreos.
Now it’s time to get out some pretty sophisticated equipment: a can of beans.
Or a can of corn… soup… whatever. Just grab a can and go to town on those Oreos. Crush the living heck out of those suckers.
While I’m smashing those cookies to bits, I find my thoughts wander. The cashier that was unpleasant the other day *crunch-crunch-crunch*… the fact that no one else in my household can replace the toilet paper … *smash-crunch-smash* … the economy … *crunch-crunch-crunch*… piles and piles of laundry that plague my every waking moment … *smash-smash*
And before I know it I’ve turned the cookies into a nice crumbly mess.
Cookie crunching is great for working out aggression. Use half of the bag of crushed Oreos to cover your cake.
Prepare pudding mix according to package directions. Pour pudding over crushed Oreos. Spread evenly.
Top with remaining crushed Oreos.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least two hours. I usually stick it in overnight. The Oreos will soak into the pudding and create this wonderful, gooey topping.
Just prior to serving, top with whipped cream.
I love to take this cake to church to share during potluck lunches. It’s always a hit.
Yummy, moist, creamy, Oreo numminess.
Oh, those cookies you set aside? You can eat those as a special treat for making an awesome cake.
That is… if your children will LET you.
