Not Your Kids Oreo Dirt Cups

This post was sponsored by Libbey as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.
I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Not Your Kids Oreo Dirt Cups






















This year I have made a vow to myself to relax and enjoy the holidays.  Life is too short to
stress myself out about finding the perfect gift, hosting the perfect party or baking a 
million Christmas cookies!  Spending time with friends and family is what is really
important and I am trying to remember that and embrace it!

Not Your Kids Oreo Dirt Cups





















Instead of hosting a big party this year, we are keeping it low key with game nights and
holiday movie nights with friends and family.  We're also hosting Christmas eve dinner for
the family, but every one brings a dish or two, which makes it nice and easy for me.  I just
need to find a place for twenty-one people to sit!  I'm not quite sure of my menu plan yet,
but I can guarantee that there will be plenty of dessert!

Speaking of dessert, even the simplest of sweets can look elegant when served in pretty
glassware!  Oreo cookie dirt cups are a family favorite, but paired with Libbey Glass
Perfect Signature Brandy Glasses my Not Your Kids Dirt Cups look fancy enough for a
dinner party!  I've been a fan of Libbey glassware for years.  Libbey is the top glass
manufacturer in America and one of the largest tableware suppliers in the world.  Libbey
believes every occasion is a reason to celebrate life and I agree!

My Not Your Kids Oreo Dirt Cups are so pretty they may make another appearance on
Christmas eve!  I hope you take the time to relax and enjoy this holiday season.  It is such

Not Your Kids Oreo Dirt Cups

10-15 Oreo cookies
1 (3.9 oz) package instant chocolate pudding
2 C milk (I used 2%)
4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
2 T butter, at room temperature
1/2 C powdered sugar
1/2 of an 8 oz. container of Cool Whip
fresh raspberries, if desired

Place cookies in a resealable plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin; set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the instant pudding and milk for about 2 minutes.  Let it
sit for about 5 minutes to thicken.  Using a hand mixer, mix the cream cheese 
and butter on medium speed until light and fluffy.  Using a spatula, fold the
cream cheese mixture into the chocolate pudding, then fold in the Cool Whip
until completely combined.

Place some crushed cookies into the bottom of four glasses.  I find it easier to
fill the glasses with the pudding mixture by using a large pastry bag fitted with
a round tip.  You can just spoon it in if you prefer.  Top pudding with more
crushed cookies.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or overnight) before serving.
Top with a fresh raspberry if desired.

Yield - 4

Enjoy!
