So although this might contain far too many calories for your liking here is the quick and easy Oreo pie! So easy that your kids can probably make it all on their own! With this recipe there is no baking, no raw eggs, and no dangerous cooking equipment needed. So it is totally easy to get the little ones stirring and measuring up a storm!
So there is an “official” Oreo pie recipe on the Keebler Oreo pre made cookie crust. However I do not use that version. I am sure it works just fine but we do not have access to some of the ingredients on that list. So we improvised and this is what we came up with:
What you will need:
Milk (almond milk is a perfectly fine substitute and I have made this with unsweetened vanilla almond milk previously)
instant chocolate pudding
instant vanilla pudding
pre-made Keebler Graham cracker oreo pit crust (just 1)
cool whip or whipped cream (whichever you may have on hand…any homemade mind would be awesome too however I never make it on my own 🙁 )
a hand full of Oreos
Hot fudge (optional)
- Prepare the Premade pie crust. Take the plastic top off of it. yup. that. is. it.
Now if you are using hot fudge layer the inside of the pie crust with hot fudge and allow it to cool and Harden onto the crust. (kind of a protective shield from all the calories to come if you will. )
If you are skipping the hot fudge step because A. you don’t have any on hand or B. you are saving the calories for more whipped cream instead then please do not hesitate to go to step 2!
2. add whipped cream to the inside of the pie crust. Form a small layer of whipped cream as your base. This does not have to be thick. Remember to reserve most of your whipped cream for the next steps. This only needs to be a few sprays or spoonfuls.
3. prepare instant chocolate mix and instant vanilla pudding mix according to their box directions. (Ok so you basically need to add the required milk or almond milk but you do not need to place in the refrigerator for a long time just mix in the milk and stir them up!)
4. mix chocolate and vanilla pudding together. Thats right… this much stirring and mixing pudding flavors is a preschoolers dream!
5. layer the pudding into the piecrust adding small amounts of whipped cream in between layers.
6. cover the top of your master piece of pudding with whipped cream. Do it slowly and make it pretty. This layer will be on top!
7. Crumble an order or two and add it over the top of the whipped cream and then add some Oreos around the edges. (I use to add entire Oreos around the edges but find they could get a bit soggy so I actually like this better if you break the Oreo in half and place them in the edges this way. They still look like entire Oreos from the top and it also reserves some of your Oreos for the kids to eat if you are giving this away as a gift!)
8. Let it sit in your fridge for a while (or freezer if you want it more like ice cream cake consistency)
9. Eat it up!
** I actually find that this is a really simple and cheap gifting treat! We have made this many times for military members away from their families and the young guys and gals really enjoy it. It is simple and a yummy treat especially in the summer. The kids get a kick out of making a treat for grown ups and this one they can make all on their own!**
