I had seen this on facebook several times, and when I surfed Pinterest for a recipe, I found this delicious one, made by a real person in a real home kitchen :)!
1 package of Oreo cookies (or several packages of minis)
6 TBSP melted butter
1-8oz cream cheese (softened)
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
2 TBSP cold milk
1-12oz tub of cool whip (thaw)
2- 3.9oz Jell-O Instant chocolate pudding
3 1/4 cup of milk
1 bag of mini chocolate chips
If you read my blog much, you'll know by now that I always have to add or edit something when I'm building in the kitchen, so here are my changes/additions:
I doubled it, which required quite a few packages of Mini Oreos in order to cover the bottom of the pan (I don't have any small baking pans, just half sheets).
I also could only find one package of instant chocolate pudding, so I used one package of vanilla chocolate pudding instead. I added instant coffee to the crust layer, and the top layer of whipped cream mixture - that was an oops, adding the entire carton of whipped cream to the cream cheese, but it ended up being delicious, and I used that with the coffee for the top layer. Couldn't find the chocolate chips I knew I had stashed, so we substituted the carob chips from the freezer (on the inside instead of the top), and they were glorious :).
Instead of crushing the cookies in a food processor as suggested, we smashed them (in a plastic bag) with a rolling pin, then mixed in the melted butter. I added a little coffee to the butter before putting it into the microwave, so it ended up with that caramelly flavor from the coffee/butter/heat combination.
I added a bit of instant coffee to the rest of the cream cheese/cool whip mixture, then whipped it till it was fluffy again before spreading it across the top and popping it back in the fridge for a few hours before supper.
