Oh, Oh, Oreo

I have an Oreo addiction.  Thin...double stuf...regular...flavored.  I don't discriminate.  I love them ALL.  However, my favorite is just a regular ol' Oreo.  Preferably with a huge glass of cold milk.  I'm a dunker.  I wish I could indulge in these little bites of heaven on a daily basis, but sadly I can't satiate my cravings like I want.  It's so much fun getting older! ( did you read that with sarcasm?!)

Considering my love of America's favorite twistable cookie, it only stands to reason that I HAD to make this happen when I saw this video on Facebook.  HELLO!  All of my favorite not-healthy-for-me-at-all things in one pie dish....SOLD.  

Since I really couldn't justify making this to indulge in after a regular weeknight dinner, I waited until we were hosting company here at the house so that I wouldn't be the only one to consume all the calories & sugar.  I can't begin to tell you what a hit this pie was!  Everyone here was raving about it!!  I honestly should've made two because our guests were wanting second servings (and so was I), but I settled for an empty pie plate full of crumbs (that I later scooped up and ate) #ItDoesntCountIfNoOneSeesYou.

If you need a dessert to take to potlucks, or one to make for a crowd, let this one be it. Just be sure to make an extra, y'know, in case you want to throw all caution to the wind :)  


1 pkg. of Oreo Cookies (about 39-40 total)
1/2 stick (4 TBSP) butter, melted
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (8 oz.) tub Cool Whip
1/2 C. milk chocolate chips, melted
1/2 C. confectioner's powdered sugar

Do you feel like you could go into sugar shock right about now???  Me too.  But it's worth it...

First thing's first.  

Place 25 Oreos in your food processor and crush until fine.  

Add the melted butter to the crushed Oreos and mix until combined.  This will form your pie crust.  Transfer to an 8 or 9 inch pie dish and press mixture evenly into the dish using your fingertips.

In a separate bowl,  mix cream cheese, cool whip, and powdered sugar until smooth.  Transfer half of the mixture to a separate bowl and set aside.

Now crush 8 more Oreos with  your food processor until fine and mix them in with one half of the cream cheese mixture.

Melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chip morsels and mix with the other half of the cream cheese mixture until well combined. 

Spread the crushed Oreo/cream cheese mixture evenly atop the crust.

Take the remaining Oreos and place evenly atop the cream cheese mixture.

Evenly top the Oreos with the melted chocolate/cream cheese mixture.
Are you dying yet?!

Sprinkle crushed Oreos on top of the melted chocolate/cream cheese layer and place in refrigerator to set.  If at all possible, keep refrigerated overnight.  Otherwise be sure to keep it refrigerated at least two hours before serving, but in this case the longer you can keep it refrigerated before serving, the better.  

There's absolutely NOTHING healthy about this dessert which is probably why I couldn't devoured the entire thing in one sitting.  IT IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!  

Satisfied my Oreo craving like you wouldn't believe.  

I'm a big believer in "everything in moderation", but y'all...moderation was a struggle for me with this dessert. #thestruggleisreal

This was extremely easy and quick to prep which made it all the better.  I've already had a few of our guests request I make it for our next Sunday Funday. I will, of course, happily oblige.  Only next time I'll be sure to make an extra!!!!
