Oreo Mousse Pudding

There are no words to describe how amazing this dessert is. It's really really really really really really yummy! Rich, creamy, chocolate mousse pudding with Oreos really hits all the dessert necessities.



Ingredients:

16 fl oz whipping cream, cold

2 tablespoons sugar

4 packages of Jello instant pudding

8 cups cold milk (for Jello pudding)

1 pack Oreos

1 (1ounce) square semi-sweet chocolate, to shave for garnish



Preparation:

-Crush the package of Oreos. I’ve found the best way to do this is to place the Oreos in a large Ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. No mess and it works great!

-Prepare Jello according to directions. Set in refrigerator for 5 minutes.

-In a mixing bowl, add the cold cream and begin whipping. Once thickened slightly, sprinkle in the sugar and finish whipping just until stiff peaks form. Set aside for a moment.

-In medium-large bowl, add 2 cups of the chocolate pudding (reserving the remaining pudding) and begin adding the whipped cream to it in several increments, gently folding in to keep a fluffy and light consistency, as this is the “chocolate mousse” part of the dessert; once all whipped cream is incorporated, set aside and prepare glasses.

To Assemble:

-Layer desired amounts of mousse, pudding, and Oreos. I sprinkled Oreos between each layer.

-Garnish with Oreo crumbs and chocolate shavings.
