Ding Dong Casserole

This a great dessert to have the kids help put together because there is no cooking and the mess is pretty minimal. It comes together in about 15 minutes and only dirties 1 bowl, 1 pan, 1 spatula and a measuring cup! Not to mention once you taste it you won’t what your kitchen looks like because it is so yummy! 

Our cast of ingredients:

3 1/2 cups of whole milk

Chocolate graham crackers

Chocolate frosting

Cool Whip

2 (4oz) packages of cookies and cream pudding mix

12 oreos (crushed or as Tru calls it “smooshed”)

First mix the milk and the pudding mix in an electric mixer until thickened, roughly one play through  Taylor Swift’s song shake it off in Tatum’s terms, then fold in the Cool Whip. Now is time to crush the Oreos. It is a PERFECT job for any kid! I like to put them in a sandwich bag to help minimize the crumbs going all over, but tell the kids to to make sure ALL the cookie makes it into the dessert.

Make sure they are smooshed real good! Then mix them into the pudding mixture too.

Once it’s all combined, you’ll need to get the 8.5 x 13 pan ready. Line the bottom of your pan with the chocolate graham crackers.   Now pour half the pudding- Cool Whip- Oreo goodness overtop the grahams. Then layer the grahams across the top, followed by the rest of the ooey-gooey goodness! You guessed it, next comes another layer of chocolate grahams. Last– and FAR from least– comes the chocolate icing. Did you really think I could forget about the chocolate icing?? Come on! Here’s the trick with the icing, you need to heat it up in the microwave for about 30 seconds. (WARNING: Make sure your get all of the foil lid off the icing canister or you’ll blow your microwave up!!) Give the warm yummy icing a stir and then poor it over top the chocolate grahams. 

Smooth it over and pop this puppy in the fridge to set up for a minimum of 4 hours. <–that is the HARDEST part of the entire recipe! 

Once it’s set up you can cut it like a cake with a knife. It is best served with an ice cold glass of milk.
Hope this is a FUN recipe to make with your kids, and you enjoy the end results as much as we did!!!
