Reduced-Fat Oreo Layer Dessert

Pin It
Did any of you have "dirt" growing up?

No, I don't mean the dirt outside. I know we all used to play in the mud and climb trees and get dirty, but I hope no one actually ate the stuff.
What I'm referring to is the dessert with crushed Oreos layered with whipped cream and chocolate pudding. And then we'd put gummy worms in it to make it look like dirt. Don't you remember that? Well I do and I thought it was the best.

This one is a grown-up version of the classic we used to have as kids. The only thing that makes it grown-up is that some cream cheese and powdered sugar are mixed in one of the layers and it's also sans gummy worms. Oh, and we used all reduced-fat ingredients, so it's a little bit healthier. Chris made this for me for my birthday, so I requested no worms (I mean, I did turn 27 so I figured it wasn't really necessary), but you can feel free to add them for some nostalgia. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe


  • 1 pkg. of reduced-fat Oreos
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large box of instant sugar-free chocolate pudding
  • 2 (8 oz.) tubs lite cool whip
  • 1 (8 oz.) package 1/3 reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Make chocolate pudding according to package directions and let it set in the fridge.

Crush the whole package of cookies either with a food processor, or in a bag with a rolling pin. Save 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top of dessert when it's done. 

Mix remaining crumbs and melted butter together. Pour crumb mixture into a 13x9 pan. Press crumbs into the bottom of the pan to make a crust. 

In a mixing bowl, blend cream cheese until nice and smooth and then add powdered sugar; mix well. Fold in 1 tub of cool whip. 

Top Oreo crust with cream cheese mixture, then pudding, then your last 8 oz. tub of cool whip. Sprinkle remaining Oreos on top. 

Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
