In my haste of trying to get the house ready AND making the food, I forgot the middle layer of Oreos and therefore didn't need to use extra Oreos on the top. Everyone really enjoyed it, but I don't think the block of cream cheese is necessary and would definitely recommend leaving it out. This dessert is super creamy and perfect for your favorite chocolate lovers.
From My Stained Apron
8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature (I recommend leaving this out!!)
2 medium containers of Cool Whip
1 large box of chocolate pudding prepared according to directions (I used 3 small boxes)
1 package of Oreos (set aside 5 cookies)
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
Crush the Oreos (except for five). In a bowl mix together the Oreos and melted butter.
After preparing the chocolate pudding mix in the cream cheese and one container of cool whip. Layer the trifle dish in this order:
First half of the Oreo/butter mixture, then half of the pudding mix,
then the remaining container of Cool Whip,
then the last half of the Oreo mixture, then the remaining pudding mixture, and finally top of with remaining 5 Oreos (that have been crushed).
For best results chill for a few hours or overnight before serving.
