Oreo Delight

Oreo DelightIf you take nothing away from this blog, I hope you’ll at least try this recipe.  As a kid, this was my favorite thing for my Mom to make me.  Special occasions like a 100 on a spelling test or making the “all A” honor roll were always celebrated with a batch of this Oreo delight.  And that was a big deal.  For my family, this was an expensive recipe!  It ‘s funny though, when I look back, I don’t think I ever knew we didn’t have much money or that we were any different than any other family.  My parents sacrificed, my dad working crazy long hours, for my mom to be able to stay at home with me when I was little.  I look back at those days when Mom would let me play hooky from school and we would scrounge up change to get McDonald’s hamburgers as fun times, not sad ones.  As an adult, I realize how much my parents did without so they could give me everything I wanted.  It sounds crazy, but having a child of my own, makes me realize even more how much I love my parents and how much they love me.  And this little recipe was one of my Mom’s many ways of saying “I Love You”!  Y’all enjoy!


  • 1 pkg regular Oreo cookies
  • 3/4 stick of butter, melted
  • 2 – 8 oz containers of Cool Whip
  • 1 – 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners/powdered sugar
  • 1 large (5.9-ounce) pkg chocolate instant pudding
  • 2 3/4 cup milk


  1. Crush entire bag of Oreo cookies using a food processor (or take out your frustrations and do it manually)
  2. Reserve 1 cup of Oreo crumbs and mix remaining crumbs with melted butter.
  3. Press Oreo crumbs/butter mixture into bottom of 9X13 pan to form a crust.
  4. Mix 1 container of Cool Whip, softened cream cheese, and confectioners sugar in a large bowl.  A mixer might be handy here.
  5. Spread the Cool Whip/cream cheese/sugar mixture on top of the packed crumbs.
  6. Mix the pudding and milk.  Allow to set.
  7. Spread the pudding over the previous layer.
  8. Spread the other container of Cool Whip on top.
  9. Top with reserved Oreo crumbs.  Chill and enjoy!

  1. I love you my sweet son !!!!!

  2. I was just wondering about the Oreo Delight recipe……..the only question I have is: Do you crush the cream that is inside of the oreo’s or take the cream out? Making this for church this weekend, and kind of need to know, also sounds yummy and easy!

    I made the Pecan chewies in the paper this past week and they were delicious. I am so thankful you have this website, as I have already printed a lot of recipes off.

    Keep up the good work and let me know about the Oreo’s please!


    • Hi Cindy! Thanks for the kind words! Yes, you crush it all together. No need to remove the cream. It works really well to crush them in a food processor too. Right now, we’re planning on doing the column once a month on the first Saturday of the month. Please be sure to let the folks over at the Progress know you enjoyed it so they’ll keep it running! Many thanks! -Stacey

  3. Thank you for letting me know about the Oreo’s!! I am going to make this Sat for church, think it is going to be a hit!

    • Hopefully so! I know it absolutely one of my favorites! Thanks so much for spreading the word! You’re quickly becoming my new favorite person!

  4. I could not remember what paper I found your article in, I just emailed the Montgomery Advertiser but after reading your email again, I must have gotten this recipe out of Prattville Progress, I will email them too! Gotta keep this site going!!

    • Bless your heart! Thanks! Since the Advertiser owns the Progress, I’m sure it will help. I appreciate you contacting the Progress too, though. You have no idea how much I appreciate all your hard work! :-)

  5. Made the Oreo Delight for church this past Sunday, and it was a HUGE success……….it was all gone!! And I admit I got a little bit of it and it was delicious!! Will be making the easy pecan recipe this weekend. Thank y’all so much for this wonderful easy site…….I am not a cook, but y’all sure make me look good!!

    I will email the Progress, I had forgot, thanks for reminding me.

    Going to check out new recipes, as I make them I post them on my FB page for friends to try, one friend just made the chicken casserole and rice and had nothing but raves about it.

    Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Cindy! Thanks so much for the kind encouraging words! I GREATLY appreciate you spreading the word and sharing the recipes on your Facebook page. I’ve just made that a little easier, by adding a FB “Share” button at the bottom of each post. Again, many thanks!

    Well, if this doesn’t look like a ‘OhMyStinkinHeck’ recipe! I’m sure that is what Jyl Nipper would say! Never heard of this, but will have to try it! Enjoyed the story that goes with it, too! Thanks, Stacey! You’ve done it again!

  7. Thanks for sharing and for the recipe!!! My husband LOVES Oreos. I will have my daughter make this for him on Father’s Day!!!!

  8. I just made this and it is the best thing ever,, Thank you

  9. Regina Fischer says:

    This sounds very similar to my Dirt Cake Recipe. Except I have a step in there of pd sugar and butter, Mixed with the cream cheese and all.

  10. Stacey, I am wondering if you can substitute some fat-free ingredients such as fat-free Cool Whip, pudding, cream cheese, skim milk, and reduced-fat margerine? We are trying to cut back on calories at my house, but the recipe sounds wonderful!

  11. Pinned it. That looks absolutely incredible. (Your new design looks great – love the skillet icon buttons – very clever!)

  12. Can you make this the night before you need it? If you make it the same day you plan to eat it, how long does it need to chill in the fridge for? Thanks! Thinking of making this for dessert after the football game-dinner we are hosting tomorrow. Looks delicious.

    • ABSOLUTELY!!! I actually think it’s better the next day! It gives everything time to get happy together. It’s best if it chills at least 3 hours.

      • Awesome! Thanks for the reply! I just went to the grocery store and have all the ingredients and will make it tonight for tomorrow then. So excited to try it – yum! I know our guests will love it.

      • One last question: Do you serve it chilled straight out of the fridge or do you serve it room temp? I’m assuming chilled, so it doesn’t get too soft when you serve it? Thanks. Just made it and it’s chillin’ in the fridge!

  13. It was delicious!! Everyone loved it!

  14. Thinking about making these in individual parfait glasses. I am wondering how many it would make? 12?

  15. Maribeth says:

    I used to make this, or something simular to this a few years back. Lost the recipe so I’m so glad to see this one you posted. It’s also good to drizzle warm caramel on the top. SO GOOOD!!

  16. Kim Houston says:

    What is Cool Whip? Give me an idea and maybe I can improvise? We don’t get it in New Zealand.

    • Cool Whip is a stabilized whipped topping reminiscent of fresh whipped cream. Only it’s thicker and won’t fall like whipped cream will.

  17. Kim Houston says:

    Thanks for reply Stacey. We have plenty of cows here in New Zealand so cream not a problem. But we are going through a drought so prices may start going up.We do have a cream that comes in an spray can I think I’ll give that a go!

  18. I make this, but use Triple Double Chocolate Oreo cookies in the crust.

    After layering the cream cheese layer on top, I put it in the fridge to set up.

    I use two 4.2 oz. bx. of Jell-O Oreo Cookies ‘n Crème instant pudding mixed with 3 c. milk and 1/2 c. Cool Whip, spread it on the cream cheese layer and put it in the fridge to set up.

    So delicious!

    I also make a crust of flour, chopped nuts and butter that’s baked and cooled, and use any flavor pudding….the flavors are almost endless!

  19. I made this dessert and was delicious. The only question I have : does anyone know how many calories for one serving?thanks

  20. This recipe looks yummy. I wanna make it but I have one question. How many pieces are there in a pack of regular Oreo in America? I live in Thailand and a pack that we have here looks so tiny. I don’t think that it’s gonna be enough for 9×13 pan :)

  21. Is there something I can substitute in place of confectioner sugar? I’m a diabdtic.

  22. Is there something I can substitute in place of confectioner sugar? I’m a diabetic.

    • The only thing that I know of is the powdered sugar that this company makes: http://www.swervesweetener.com/

    • Donna Edwards says:

      Sharon: Sugar free powdered sugar replacement recipe – 1 cup granulated Splenda and 1 teaspoon cornstarch ..Using mixer or food processor, Blend on high speed 1 minute, until mixture is similar in texture to powdered sugar. May need to scrape down bowl of food processor/ mixer several times in the process.. Sugar can be stored in an airtight container for up to a month. Not for use where sugar is a main ingredient. I can’t remember what website i got this from, and haven’t tried it yet. Hope this is of some help. I’m a diabetic too.

  23. Made this for my guy after I wouldn’t let him order mud pie for dinner earlier in the week. We both loved it! He loved the crust the most (me, the pudding). The only downside is that it’s hard to keep over time. I had to keep in the freezer and take it out to thaw an hour or two before we wanted to eat it. It’s definitely more for a party where it can be eaten in one sitting, but a great recipe nonetheless!

  24. Joyce Forcht says:

    I know this sounds crazy but is there anything to substitute for the cream cheese. I have a grandson who won’t eat cream cheese. I know I can tell him that he likes everything in this but if he tastes it at all it will be all over. He already doesn’t trust me because I haven’t been honest about contents of other dishes. I thought about adding some vanilla to the cream cheese mixture to try to hide any taste that he might detect. I know I’m going to make this and I would hope he would eat it.

    • I’m just not sure about a substitution. If I were you, I would just omit the cream cheese altogether. If you do try it without it, please let me know.

  25. sorry, just one of my pet peeves——how large is a large box of instant pudding?

  26. Could you substitute real whipped cream for the Cool Whip?

    • Yes, but you’ll need to eat it quickly. Often unstablized whipped cream will break down quickly and you’ll end up with a 9×13 pan of goop.

      • Thanks! Do you think you could add gelatin to the whipping cream before you whipped it to somewhat stabilize it?

        • I can’t guarantee it, but I’m going to guess that it will work much better. I’ve always just made it with Cool Whip so I can’t attest to the success any other way. If you do try it, please let me know how it turns out. Here’s a great recipe for a stabilized whipped cream that uses the gelatin: http://bakedbree.com/whipped-cream.

          • Appreciate it! I will have to give this a try. I will be sure to let you know when I get around to trying this recipe! Thanks again!

  27. I was wondering do you cook the crust?


    • If you use really cold milk it will probably set enough on the counter, but putting it in the refrigerator will be the best option. Check out the instructions on the packet of pudding mix. That should give you their preferred method.

  29. Thanks for the easy recipe. Gonna be making it for thanksgiving. It’ll be my first time making thanksgiving so I needed something nice and easy aside from pumpkin pie.

  30. I tried making it and the lawyer with cream cheese was so gross I skipped it I thi k something went horrible wrond mine came out Oreo crumbs chocolate pudding cool whip straberrys more cool whip and crumbs I wish I could have made the layer right :(

  31. So do you add more milk after mixing the pudding by the directions on the box?

  32. I got this website from my friend who informed me on the topic of this site and now this time I am visiting this website and reading very informative content here.

  33. Thanks so much Sweet Stacey for adding all of our websites to your WP link back! SO happy you joined our party! Have a wonderful Wednesday.

  34. Congrats Stacey! This lovely dish received the MOST CLICKS at last week’s Weekend Potluck party! We’re so happy to have you joining us at our virtual table and look forward to your coming again and sharing some of your best YUM with us. I do love reading through your comments…you are beloved. =)

    • Thanks, Marsha! I’m very fortunate to have some really great friends here on Southern Bite. Thanks for having me at Weekend Potluck and I hope to be back! :)

  35. Do you know how many this feeds? Thanks, can’t wait to try it out!

  36. My question is , why is Cream Cheese used in all the dessert recipes? I don’t like Cream cheese, by me knowing that it is in the dessert I won’t eat it, is there something else I can use or do I have to use the cream cheese?

  37. It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and
    it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you few
    interesting things or advice. Perhaps you can write next
    articles referring to this article. I wish to read more things about it!
