I'm soooo looking forward to the unofficial kick-off to summer-- Memorial Day Weekend! It's always a great time to gather with friends and family, take pause, laugh, and... eat! We always host the feast, and I decided I'm going to try a new dessert. It sounds delish, and I'm sure it'll be a hit. Maybe you should try it, too.
Oreo Brownie Lush
1 box (18.3 oz) Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix (water, vegetable oil, and eggs called for on the package for cakelike brownies)
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 container (12 oz) Cool Whip frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 1/2 cups finely crushed Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies (about 16 cookies)
2 boxes (4-serving size each) Jell-O chocolate-flavor instant pudding and pie filling mix
3 cups cold milk
1/2 cup coarsely crushed Oreos (about 4)
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Make brownie batter as directed on box for cakelike brownies. Spread in pan. Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted 2 inches from side comes out almost clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
In large bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping down side of bowl frequently. Beat in 2 cups of the whipped topping. Spread over brownie. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups finely crushed cookies over cream cheese mixture.
In medium bowl, beat dry pudding mixes and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Spread over cookie layer. Drop remaining whipped topping by spoonfuls over pudding layer; spread evenly. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours.
When ready to serve, sprinkle 1/2 cup coarsely crushed cookies on top. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pieces.
