Mint Oreo Chocolate Pudding Pie

While I do most of my baking from scratch, there are a few processed baked goods that I succumb to. One of those is mint Oreos. I've always loved mint chocolate chip ice cream, and when I was little my sister and I used to make chocolate pudding with my mom. This recipe combines the best of both worlds: an easy pie crust made from mint Oreos and butter (food processor time!), and a simple chocolate pudding pie filling made the traditional, simple way. As with most pudding pies, the bulk of the time the recipe takes is as it sits in the fridge and sets. Rather than mix cool whip topping into the pudding, this pie stands alone just fine without it, saving you an extra step. The butter-Oreo crust is pretty rich already!

Step 1: Prepare

You will need a food processor for this recipe. I have seen recipes use a blender for cookie pie crusts, so that would work as well. You will also need a 9-in pie plate, medium-sized bowl, spatula, knife, small bowl, whisk, and measuring cup.

Ingredients:

20 "Double Stuf Cool Mint Creme Oreos"
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
1 3.9-oz box Jell-o chocolate pudding
1 3/4 cups cold milk
extra Oreos for garnish (optional)

(Ignore the cooking spray in the photo; I realized after I made the oreo crust, that it had enough butter in it already to grease the pie dish)

Step 2: Food Process the Oreos

A lot of times when you are making a cookie crust, from oreos, ginger snaps, or graham crackers, you have to place them in a ziploc bag and hand-crush them. I have some memories of using a hammer once upon a time! Fortunately, a food processor can also do the trick, though maybe it's a little less fun this way!

Place 20 Oreos in the food processor and process until crumbs.

Step 3: Melt butter

Melt one stick of butter, cut up into pieces, in the microwave for about 50 seconds.

Step 4: Combine butter and Oreos

Add the butter to the Oreos in the food processor, and process until mixed. It will look like the consistency of wet cement.

How do you eat this? LOLZ (Btw, that was not a sarcastic LOLZ but in fact a awkward and confused LOLZ.)
aliciak (author)  Incelism7 years ago
Haha. Just slice it like a regular pie...pudding will get somewhat solidified in the fridge so that you can cut slices.

Wow!! That looks really yummy. Could you also use store-bought oreo crumbs, or should the crushed ones have the cream in them?
aliciak (author)  AdamK7 years ago
Wow, I didn't even know you could buy oreo crumbs. I guess you could try?

I think I just might! This is the kind of no-bake recipe I was looking for. I don't have a stove or an oven where I live, so it's hard to find good dishes to make.
