Easy Dessert Recipe White Chocolate and Mint Oreo Parfait
Need a really quick and easy dessert recipe idea for some last minute St. Patrick’s Day party planning? I’ve totally got your back! We weren’t planning on having a big blow out at our house this year for St. Patrick’s Day. The original plan was to head over to my In-Laws and have a nice get together over there. But, after my father in-law blew out his shoulder, we had to do some quick improv and switch gears. I of course had nothing planned so, I took to my favorite ‘idea spot’ (Pinterest, naturally!) in search of some help! I found this super quick and easy dessert recipe that I had almost everything right on hand already. Except…the original called for some mint extract. I didn’t have that. So… being clever, I winged it! Check this out!
White Chocolate and Mint Parfait
• 1 Package Cool Mint Oreo Cookies
• 1 Package Instant White Chocolate or Vanilla Pudding (either works perfect!)
• 2 Cups Milk
• 1 Pack Duncan Hines Frosting Creation Mint Chocolate Flavor Mix (pretty smart switch out, huh?!)
• Whip Cream
For this easy dessert recipe, you simply mix frosting flavor into dry pudding mix in medium sized bowl. Or, if you actually have mint extract, use a teaspoon of that! The flavor packet however will turn the pudding green, extract will not. Add milk and beat pudding as per directions on package and refrigerate. While that is chilling and setting up, crush Oreo cookies in a blender (or smash them up in a zip lock bag) Leave four cookies whole for topping off and decoration. When pudding has set up, simply alternate layers of blended cookies and pudding in a serving dish. Top with whipped cream and a cookie! How easy is that??
Fun Fact! Over 450 BILLION Oreo cookies have been sold since they hit the market on March 6, 1912! That makes them 101 years old. I can’t name a single person who doesn’t like Oreos either! I just sat here trying to think of someone. Anyone. Nope. Not a soul! I of course have to do the little ‘twist open and eat the center icing’ thing when I eat them. How do you eat them?
