Folks, let me tell you something. My man LOVES Oreos. When he was deployed there were two things he’d ask me to send him. One of those items was Oreos. I have to watch him. If I don’t watch him then he’ll eat a whole pack all by himself. When we were doing cub scouts a few years ago one of the other mom’s brought this to an event we had. Ever since then Michael insists he needs to have it at least once a year. If he could get away with it, he’d want it at least once a week. That’s not happening.
Scouts has been an interesting journey for us. When we took over the pack our son wanted to join, there was hardly no children. My husband called me while he was there and he says “honey, there’s two kids here. There aren’t any den leaders and there’s not a cub master.”…I should have known the moment my phone rang that I was getting pulled into doing cub scouts. My life was getting ready to change forever. I’ve met some great people, some iffy people, and some I wish I never met you people. I’ve cried, I’ve listened, I’ve learned, and I’ve never laughed as hard as I do with these families. I’ve done several jobs and taught several dens. At this point, I can tell you I have never had such a privilege of working with such a wonderful group of people.
1/2 cup of butter
1 pack of double stuffed oreos
2 packs of the small instant chocolate pudding mixture
16 oz cool whip
8 oz cream cheese, soft
3 1/4 cups of milk
1 cup powdered sugar
Crush all of the Oreos and set half of them aside. Take half of the crumb mixture and pour melted butter in and press into a 9×13 pan to form a crust. Start by using half of the butter. Sometimes I find 1/2 cup is too much. In a separate bowl mix together the milk and the pudding mix. Set aside. In another bowl, mix the cream cheese with a mixer. Once smooth, fold in 8 oz of cool whip. spread the mixture over the crust. Layer with the pudding and then the remaining 8 oz of cool whip. Sprinkle the remaining cookie crumbs on top. Chill in the fridge to set before serving.
