This week’s 5 Ingredient Friday is something that is quick and easy to put together! It’s a great go-to dessert for the summer when it’s hot and you don’t want to turn on the stove or oven. I love all things Cookies & Cream, so I love this Cookies & Cream Pudding! It’s just something that I threw together in a pinch one time when I knew I wanted something for dessert, but didn’t want to bake anything.
- 1 box Chocolate Instant Pudding (any size, I only had a 5.1 oz box on hand)
- 1 box Vanilla Instant Pudding (I used a 3.4 oz box)
- 10 – 12 Oreos
- Cool Whip
Make the chocolate instant pudding according to the directions on the package. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Make the vanilla instant pudding according to the directions on the package. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Put the oreos in a food processor or a blender (my Vitamix worked great for this!)
Reserve 1/4 cup of the oreo crumbs to use when you put everything together.
Right before serving, mix together the vanilla pudding and the rest of the oreo crumbs.
Shortly before you’re ready to serve the dessert, take the chocolate pudding, vanilla + oreo pudding, oreo crumbs and cool whip and layer them in a dessert dish or parfait glass. I spooned in the chocolate pudding, then oreo crumbs, then Vanilla + oreo pudding, then cool whip, chocolate pudding, vanilla + oreo, and cool whip. I sprinkled the oreo crumbs on top. You can do it any way that you want – be creative!
You can get creative! Use different flavors of pudding. I think a butterscotch pudding would be good with vanilla! Then you can add in some chopped up Heath bar or something like that. Or if you have some fresh raspberries on hand, that would be very good paired with vanilla and lemon pudding!
