What You’ll Need

  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 (4-serving-size) packages of instant chocolate pudding and pie filling
  • 3 cups cold milk
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

What to Do

  1. Place cookies in a resealable plastic bag; using a rolling pin, finely crush cookies. Place in a medium bowl, add butter and mix well. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9- x 13-inch baking dish; chill until ready to use.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, vanilla, and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Stir in 2 cups of whipped topping. Lightly spread the mixture evenly over the cookie crust.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together chocolate pudding and milk until thick. Evenly spread over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the pudding is set.
  4. Spread the remaining whipped topping over the pudding layer and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, or until set.
