Try the Grey Stuff……. It’s delicious!

This is a pin that I’ve only recently pinned and it looked scrumptious (maybe I should say delicious?)! Then on Girls Night, Emily, our hostess made some. The picture above is actually the stuff she made. It is super rich and super yummy! Don’t overindulge, savor.
My recipe, which was very similar to the one she used, came from this site.
To make this amazing desert, all you need is:
•1 regular package of vanilla pudding (not family sized)
•1 1/2 cups whole or 2% milk (I used 2%)
•12 Oreos (not double stuffed)
•1 8oz tub of cool whip
•2 or 3 tbs of chocolate pudding mix
•sprinkles or edible pearls (optional)

Start by mixing your milk and vanilla pudding mix, then refrigerate while you complete the next step:

Use a food processor, or just smash them manually, but grind up your Oreos until you have a fine powder:

**Side note on how important it is to read directions:12 Oreos, not a package. My Grey Stuff, while still yummy, was definitely brown.**

Combine your Oreo dust and vanilla pudding, mixing well. Mix in your Cool Whip, I pulled out my hand mixer at this point because my Cool Whip was still a little solid. Slowly add your chocolate pudding mix, stirring as you go, so hopefully yours will be grey instead of brown!

**The picture does make it look grey, but trust me, brown!**

Refrigerate for at least an hour, then serve up on brownies, or just in a bowl like pudding, which is what my kids call it, decorating with sprinkles or pearls at your discretion:

All in all, delicious! And who knows, maybe next time it’ll be grey……

Happy dining!

Oreo (Milkshake) Smoothie

Oreo (Milkshake) Smoothie

After reading this original pin, I realized 2 things. First, I would never make this the way it was originally intended because I don’t do yogurt. Second, I completely blew away the point of this, which was a weight watcher recipe….. Yeah, that’s a my bad!
Recipe is 1/2 cup milk, 4 oreos, 2 cups frozen yogurt. The original pinner said she doubled it and used one of those nifty handheld mixers you can stick directly in your cup.
I on the other hand used ice cream instead of yogurt (don’t ask why because I don’t know, but I have a deep seated aversion to yogurt) and I tripled it to share with my kids. Keeping the oreos away from them for a few days was a very complicated process too! I also threw everything in my blender because I don’t have a nifty handheld blender.
This was a huge, if messy, success! I don’t know if my blender is just getting old, or if I just put too much ice cream in, but the blender was struggling to churn it up.
The kids made an absolute mess of themselves, but they devoured it. I scarfed mine down as well, almost to the point of brain freeze. I was also excited, as I always am, when I have a chance to use my pretty cups and spoons!
