While it goes by many names with infinite variations, this is the original, and even after many, many years it still remains my son's favorite (he's now 28!). Try a graham cracker or shortbread crust, pistachio or other flavor pudding, or even two different flavors of pudding, each with its own layer. Son's favorite is with a graham crust, and one layer each of chocolate and vanilla. I've found that 3 cups of milk works better than 3-1/4 cups, and I garnish the top with shaved chocolate curls. Another favorite variation is with vanilla pudding, layered with bananas and/or strawberries! The possibilities are almost endless and all delicious. This goes FAST!
This is always a hit. At Christmas time, I add a few drops of peppermint extract to the cream cheese mixture, then add crushed candy canes sprinkled on top. Very festive.
Delicious, quick and easy. Out of all the gourmet and time-consuming desserts I have made for the office, this one received some of the best reviews! I opted to use as many sugar-free, fat-free, low-fat ingredients as I could find. Nobody believed me when I fessed up; they're fussy and prefer as many calories and fat as possible! I sprinkled the top with more crushed Oreos. Will definitely be making again!
