I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Oreo No Bake Dessert

A great make ahead dessert for a crowd!

1 pkg regular Oreo cookies
1 cup pretzel twists, plus extra to garnish
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 - 4 oz (113 g) box instant chocolate pudding
2 - 8 oz Cool Whip containers
1 - 8 oz (250 g) cream cheese, softened
1 cup icing sugar
caramel ice cream topping (optional)

Crush the oreos and pretzels using a rolling pin. I find using wax cereal bags for this job works well because they can stand up to more pounding than a plastic ziplock bag.

Melt the butter and mix it in with the crushed stuff. Prepare a 13 X 9 baking dish with cooking spray and press the crust into the dish.

Make the pudding as per package directions and refrigerate.

In a mixer cream the cream cheese until smooth, gradually adding the icing sugar. Fold in 1 - 8 oz container of Cool Whip.

Top the oreo layer with the cream cheese mixture. Spread the chocolate pudding on next. If using caramel topping drizzle it on here.

Finish this beauty off with the remaining Cool Whip and garnish with more crushed oreos and pretzels.

Cover and refrigerate.
