Oreo Delight

This year, after looking back at my pathetic -non- scrapbooks
that I accomplished over the last year, I decided to set a new goal.
I need to take more family pictures...
So, I decided to do Project Life from Becky Higgins.
I'm really excited about it and we are already in February
and I am proud to say, I'm still going strong!
I have loved Becky ever since she was with Creating Keepsakes
and so I have become a blog stalker of hers.
She has a recipe tab on her blog.
I was checking it out the other day and saw her recipe for
Oreo Delight.
I noticed it was REMARKABLY close to my Chocolate Dessert recipe.
So, I thought i'd give it a shot...test it out...see which one I like better!
Oreo Delight
35 Oreo cookies (1 whole pkg.)
6 Tbsp. margarine, melted
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
1 (12 oz.) tub Cool Whip, thawed
3 1/4 c. cold milk
2 pkg. instant Jell-O pudding
(she wasn't specific on this one, so I just did one vanilla and one chocolate)

Crush the entire package of oreo cookies.
(It seems like such a waste...so if you must, go ahead and eat a cookie or two!)
Make sure there aren't a bunch of big pieces.
Next time I do it, I will probably use a food processor.
In a bowl, combine the oreo and the margarine.
Stir until coated.
Press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
Does not need to be greased.
Place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
In a seperate bowl, combine the cream cheese, milk and sugar.
Once combined, fold in 1 1/4 cup cool whip.
(this is where my recipe is different)
Spread carefully over the oreo crust.
(I like my cream cheese mixture better)

In another seperate bowl, combine the pudding and milk
(my recipe is also different from this one, but I like hers better..it's thicker!)
(Maybe that's why my sister was giving me the eye!)
Spread over cream cheese mixture.

Place in the fridge until you are ready to serve and
top with remaining cool whip.

I took both of these desserts to work and let people try each of them
to let me know which one they liked better.
It honestly was a tie between the two.
Personally, I like my crust and cream cheese better and her pudding!
I think that's the way i'll make it in the future!
Thanks Becky, for Project Life and the recipe!

  1. Ooh, I love this, haven't made it for a long time!
    I have a recipe for Eclair Cake (different than yours) that I have combined the crust from one recipe and the filling from another to make it just the way I like it! :)
    Love the new blog...so cute!

  4. I have no idea if you will even get this today lol, but I am really hoping to make this dessert for Thanksgiving today and I am confused on whether you use BOTH whip cream and cream cheese or one or the other? I see you say you prefer your cream cheese mix over her whip cream idea, but the picture shows both ingredients...if you happen to get this soon, that would be super! THANK YOU!!! And Happy Thanksgiving!! :)
