Mudd

Difficulty: *

Mudd is simple and easy to make and is a satisfying dessert treat.

Ingredients: 1 Large Package Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (Oreos or Generic)
1 Large Package Chocolate Pudding (Jell-O or Generic)
1 Small Package Oreo Pudding
1 Large Container Frozen Topping (Cool Whip or Generic)
Milk (For use in puddings)

Method:

1. In a food processor, whip all sandwich cookies into very small pieces or crumbles. If you do not have a food processor, place cookies in a freezer bag and pummel with a meat tenderizer. If you're having a bad day and need to release aggression, this is a TERRIFIC method!

2. Prepare both chocolate and Oreo puddings according to package directions, but instead of placing in your refrigerator to set, let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. This will allow the pudding partially set but still remain liquid-y enough to spread.

3. In a large bowl (preferably one that comes with a lid), begin layering the ingredients. Basic layering scheme: chocolate pudding, cookie crumbles, whipped cream, Oreo pudding, whipped cream, chocolate pudding, cookie crumbles.

4. Place in refrigerator so that pudding can continue to set. Mudd should set for at least one hour prior to serving.

Variation:

Try these ideas for fun:

~Pre-mix portions of your puddings with cookie crumbles for added layers of delicious delight.

~Serve your Mudd in a Mudd-worthy container. Used mini garbage cans and garden pails will keep guests amused and livens up dessert.

~Add bugs to your Mudd - gummy worms can perfectly round out the ambiance of this dish!

~Spice things up - instead of chocolate sandwich cookies, try vanilla. Instead of vanilla cream in your cookies, try mint or peanut butter. Instead of chocolate pudding, try vanilla. Or, if you're adventurous, try different flavors of Jell-O!

~Sprinkle it on - Sprinkle cinnamon on top of a layer for a bit of flavorful fun. Other ideas to try are ginger or nutmeg.

Tips:
~Mudd makes for a delicious dessert for no occasion at all, or a terrific treat for special events.
~Mudd is great for use as a fundraiser. Put a scoop in 8-oz cups and sell each for a dollar.
~Mudd stays edible as long as the milk you use in your pudding does not expire - it is not recommended to keep in your fridge longer than one week.
