Oreo Mint Clouds

This is a decidedly low-brow delight that I will be serving for the Super Bowl.  I learned how to make this desert when I was running the kitchen on my aunt’s ranch and girls summer camp in Pinedale, Wyoming. This desert was favorite among both the ranch hands and the campers.

This is a cousin of the ever popular Dirt Desert which I promise to also make soon.  You can leave out the mint extract and use whatever kind of Oreos you like.  If you want to get fancy you can throw in some food coloring.   It gets better after it sits for a little while. Embrace the trashy!

What to buy (serves about 6-8):

  • 1 box (3 ounces) vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 box (15 ounces) mint oreos, broken into chunks with some kept whole to decorate top
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 16 ounces cool whip – or store brand
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract (optional)

Oreo Mint Clouds:

  • mix together the milk and pudding mix until slightly thickened
  • fold in whipped topping and oreo pieces
  • add extract and whole cookies to the top in whatever design you like
  •  refrigerate for at least 4 hours
