Last week, I did a guest post for Jill over at Create.Craft.Love. Jill has an awesome blog where she shares craft tutorials, DIY ideas, and co-hosts a once-a-week link party to share any creation you've done. She asked me to take part in her series for Summertime BBQ and asked to share something that I take. Since I was out of town and didn't get to link that over to ya'll, I thought I'd post it here for you as well! (Be sure to go over and see Jill to check out the other summertime bbq recipes from the series!)
When we go out to others' BBQs, I usually like to bring a dessert, unless specifically asked what to bring. And if not asked to bring anything, who can argue with dessert?! The cool treat I'm going to share with you today is quick, simple, and something I've learned that no matter how full the tummies seem to be, no one can turn it down. My mom used to make this when I was a kid and it's came to be a go to recipe that I've loved to whip up over the years. Hope ya'll enjoy it!
Cookies 'N Creme
2 small pkg instant vanilla pudding
4 cups milk
1 8oz pkg softened cream cheese
1 8oz. tub frozen whipped topping (thawed)
1 pkg cookies 'n cream cookies (I used summer edition Oreos), crushed and divided
Prepare the instant pudding according to package directions.
Beat softened cream cheese until smooth.
Once pudding forms, mix cream cheese into it.
Fold whipped topping into the mixture.
With half the crushed cookies, cover bottom of 9X13 dish.
Pour mixture over cookies.
Top with remaining cookies.
Doesn't get much more simple than that, right? Who wants to spend hours in the kitchen during the summertime anyway?!
****Tip: Freeze in popsicle molds (or Dixie Cups!) for the perfect summertime treats that
you your kids will LOVE********
Enjoy and prepare to take home an empty dish!
