The ingredients you'll need:
2 Cups Milk
2 Packages Instant French Vanilla Pudding mix
1 Pkg. Fudge Stripes cookies
1 COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
I chose to use the Extra Creamy COOL WHIP because it's made with Real Cream. It has a great consistency and is so good in desserts. I also like to eat a dollop of it on top of fresh fruit for a little afternoon treat.
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk and pudding mix.
Step 2: Fold half of the COOL WHIP into the pudding mixture. Once that half is well mixed, fold in the other half of the COOL WHIP.
Step 3: Crumble the cookies and fold them into the COOL WHIP pudding mixture about 8 cookies at a time.
Once you've prepared the dessert you can move it to a decorative bowl, like a trifle bowl, to take to dinners or parties. Or, if you're just eating it at home, slap some plastic wrap on the mixing bowl and call it good. It will keep for several days in the refrigerator.
So easy, right? But, how does it taste you ask?
I think he's wondering when I decided to start giving him desserts before dinner!
Seriously though, this dessert is really easy to throw together and it made quite a bit. I'm excited we can enjoy this everyday dessert for several days to come! Oh, and did I mention that I have a new assistant in the kitchen?
Meet our new friend. His name is Pirate. I thought it was appropriate because of the black patch on his eye. He's awfully dang cute, but he hasn't chewed up any of my shoes yet, so take that with a grain of salt. So far Pirate is a very calm and cuddly boy. As you can tell, he's pretty big for only 8 weeks old. We learned today that his daddy weighs about 110. Geesh. He didn't get to eat any of our new cookie dessert. At least I shared with the kids, right?
Another variation on this recipe I plan to try soon is substituting banana flavored pudding for the French vanilla, and vanilla wafer cookies for the fudge stripes...or maybe I'll just sit down and eat some more COOL WHIP right out of the bowl and read blogs instead.
