UPDATE: 2/16/2012 Husband suggested using the Girl Scout Chocolate Mint cookies instead of Oreos. Not a bad idea.
I saw this dessert the other day and just thought how great it would taste, whoops – hubby doesn’t like anything remotely tasting like peanut butter. (((head low))) So what could I do to modify this to 1. make it so he would eat it and 2. make it light.
Here we go.
No Bake Lite Chocolate Dessert
- 12 Oreo Cookies low fat, crushed into crumbs
- 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 8 ounce package low fat cream cheese
- 1 package sugar free Jello Chocolate Fudge instant pudding
- 2 cups cold skim milk
- 1 teaspoon Mexican Vanilla
- 1 8 ounce tub lite whipped topping thawed
Make the pudding according to directions (package of pudding plus 2 cold cups skim milk). Let firm up in the fridge – at least 20 minutes.
Place all your cookies in a Ziploc bag – don’t close it. Using your meat mallet, crush the cookies. Place in a small bowl and add the melted butter. Evenly disperse the cookies into your 6 dessert dishes and press into the bottom.
Using your paddle attachment cream the cream cheese. Add 1 cup of the pudding and vanilla and thoroughly mix scrapping down the sides of your bowl. Fold in ¾’s of the whipped topping reserving the rest for garish.
Using your piping bag with a very large tip, pipe the pudding mixture into the dessert cups. Chill for an hour. Top with remaining whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
This is a very light tasting dessert. The surprise is the Oreo crust at the bottom.
This is a keeper.
