I usually put this in a bucket with gummy worms, the traditional way.

But since this was an adult party I decided to put it in
a trifle dish, and I really love the way layers look.
I haven't made this cake since my boyfriend's mother bought me a handy dandy food processor for Christmas. I love it, can't get enough of it. I kiss it before I go to sleep every night. I hate when people say that food processors aren't necessary. NOT TRUE!
I have tried to grind Oreos up in a blender, it was a mess and they stuck in the bottom.
Crushing them with a can is effective but it is time consuming and most of the time I crush the bag so much there's a hole and then a mess. The processor cut my time in half, it was like a cooking miracle.
Look at how fine crumbs turned out. Ah fabulous.
1 pkg Oreos
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 cup Powered Sugar
1/2 cup Softened Butter
3 1/2 cups Milk
2 (3.9 oz) packages Vanilla Pudding
12 oz Cool Whip
Cream together, Butter, Cream Cheese and Powdered Sugar
Mix 3 1/2 cups of milk with pudding packages (I put mine in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up) then add cool whip. Then mix with Cream Cheese mixture.
Place Oreo cookies in a food processor and process until the cookies are fine crumbs, you can also place cookies in a large ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin, or even a soup can would work, until cookies become desired consistency.
Starting with cookie crumbs alternate layering with cream cheese and pudding mixture ending with crumbs. Let refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
