Super Easy - Mini Oreo Pudding (in Cups)

Oreo cookies are one of the world's favourite cookies. When talking about cookies n' cream this is the treat we are talking about! This dessert will be devoured by adults and children alike. It is so simple to prepare, yet really delicious. 

Serving them in cups allows you to have variation in your presentation, especially useful when serving a desserts buffet. In a buffet you need to have different shapes, sizes and presentations to keep it interesting. Go mini cups, or in bowls it all works and offers variation.

Let's get to it...

You Need
450g Oreo cookies, crushed into chunks
250g cream cheese, room temperature
·         1 cup icing sugar
3 cups milk
Seeds of 1 vanilla bean
8oz Whipped cream
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2 packages instant vanilla pudding (small size) can be bought at supermarkets OR substitute with Vanilla Custard

In a large bowl, cream the cheese, butter and sugar with an electric mixer, until Light and Fluffy. Add the milk, vanilla and pudding or custard. Mix until the mixture is smooth and the lumps are gone.

Whip the cream to soft peaks and fold it in. Place half the quantity of the cookie chunks at the bottom of the serving cup or bowl. Cover with the pudding mixture and top with the remaining cookie chunks and some crumbled cookies.

Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight to set. Serve cold.

For a mini cheesecake presentation 

If you have rings, then place the crushed Oreo cookies at the bottom, top with the cream cheese mixture, and top that with a small star piping of butter cream and a mini oreo as shown in the picture. 
Refrigerate for 8 hours, and serve cold.
