This OREO pudding cake recipe brings together the bittersweet cocoa of OREO cookies and the creaminess and sweetness of chocolate pudding, cream cheese and whipped topping. There's really no way to go wrong here.
In 9 x 13-inch pan, mix cookies and melted butter. Pack firmly for crust; chill for an hour.
Mix cream cheese, 12 oz cool whip and powdered sugar until well blended. Spread over cookie layer; chill an hour.
Make pudding according to pkg directions. Be sure it has thickened before next step. Spread over cream cheese layer; chill slightly. Spread rest of cool whip on top and sprinkle on reserved cookies. Chill for several hours. Keep refrigerated.
