These Oreo Pudding Dream Bars are a cookies and cream dessert. They have an Oreo cookie crust covered with layers of cream cheese, Oreo pudding, Cool Whip, and are topped with the crushed Oreos. You’ll love this NO BAKE dessert because these cookies and cream bars are ones you’ll be dreaming about for nights to come!
I’ve got nothin’ to say.

I know it’s a surprise. haha
Sometimes I can go on and on and talk your ear off with my nonsensical gobbledy gook, but today, I’m at a loss for words.
I guess maybe because nothin’ much has been going on which of course, you could say is a good thing.
There hasn’t been a strange woman trying to get in our front door at 11:30 at night. YIKES!
We haven’t been living in a hotel for 5 days as we’re in between rental moves.
And we aren’t moving to the other side of the country, so it’s all good.

How to make these Oreo Pudding Dream Bars –
- Crush some Oreo cookies and mix them with butter to form the cookie crust.
- Place into the freezer to harden. Yes, this is a NO bake dessert!! You’re welcome.
- Cream the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla together.
- Mix the Oreo pudding with only 1 1/2 cups milk, NOT the two cups called for on the pudding box. We want the pudding to be a bit more stable when it sets.
- If you are a Cool Whip hater, you can use this recipe for Stabilized Whipped Cream. It’s got a thicker consistency than plain whipped cream and holds up really well in all of my Dream Bar recipes.
- 1 package Oreo cookies divided
- 4 tablespoons butter 1/2 stick butter, melted
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 8- ounce container Cool Whip divided
- 1 4.2 ounce package instant Oreo pudding mix
- 1 1/2 cups milk
In a blender or food processor, finely crush 18 of the cookies.
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter and finely crushed cookies until well moistened.
Press into an ungreased 8 X 8-inch baking dish.
Place into the freezer for at least 30 minutes to harden.
Allow crust to cool completely before proceeding.
In the meantime, mix the package of pudding with the milk in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla together.
Fold in one cup of the Cool Whip.
Spread cream cheese mixture over the cooled crust.
Spread pudding over the cream cheese layer.
Spread remaining Cool Whip over the pudding layer.
Refrigerate for at least two hours or place into the freezer for one.
Eat 4 of the wonderful cookies while you're waiting. This is a must. haha
In a plastic bag, break up the 14 remaining cookies. Sprinkle over the top just before serving.
Be sure to put the larger crumbled cookies on top before serving and not before refrigerating for the two hours. They will soften and nobody likes them soft.
I rate everything on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and these Dream Bars earned 3 1/2 rolling pins.
They were really good.
I didn’t even know that this pudding existed until I saw it at the store and then decided to make this wonderful creation.
Although I’m sure it’s been made somewhere on the internet.
