My Son's Favorite Chocolate Cookie Dessert-No Baking!

Yesterday was our oldest son's birthday, so I thought I would share his favorite birthday dessert.  It is made with creme-filled chocolate cookies and has beautiful layers if you make it in a glass casserole dish or trifle bowl for a party.  This is a great make- ahead dessert, ready to pull out of the fridge when you need it!  I like to put the top layer of whipped topping and dot it with Oreos right before serving.

Here's the first layer:  melt 3/4 stick of margarine (or butter!) and toss with Oreo cookie crumbs (about 2 rows of cookies).  Press down with a fork or back of a spoon to form a crust.  Refrigerate.
2nd layer:  beat 1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese, 1/4 c powdered sugar and about 1 1/2 C of Cool Whip in a bowl until smooth.  Spread on top of crumb crust in an even layer.
3rd layer:  make a large box of  chocolate  instant pudding according to the box directions (I use 2 1/2 C milk instead of 3 C).  Spread in an even layer on top of the cream cheese layer.  Cover with clear plastic wrap and chill for a couple of hours.  When ready to serve, top with a layer of Cool Whip and stick Oreo cookies halfway down in the top of dessert.  Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Justin!
