I had something like this at a restaurant, and hoped to replicate it for a church potluck. I came close, and this is equally tasty. I think this was the first dish I’ve brought to a potluck that was wiped clean – I brought home an empty bowl!
In addition, it’s a really easy recipe. Mind you, there is no nutritional value here; in fact, this is blatantly bad for your health. But some of us get to enjoy treats once in a while, in moderation.
Oreo Fluff Stuff
4 oz cream cheese, softened
7 oz marshmallow crème
8 oz Cool Whip
6-8 big squirts of chocolate syrup (maybe ½ cup?)
10 Oreo cookies (or more, if you like), crushed
4 Oreo cookies, cut in half (or 8 cookies, if you wish to keep them whole), for garnish
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.
Add the marshmallow crème, beat in and mix well.
Add the Cool Whip, beat in and mix well.
At this point (for example, if you’re starting this the night before), you can refrigerate until just before serving.
Just prior to serving, start scooping the crème mixture into a serving bowl: Add two big scoops of the crème; then squirt in a puddle or two of chocolate syrup and 1/3 of the crushed cookies.
Add two or three more scoops of the crème mixture, another puddle or three of chocolate syrup, and the second third of the crushed cookies.
Add the last of the crème mixture, another couple of puddles of chocolate syrup, and the rest of the crushed cookies.
With a big spoon, gently mix and swirl the crème, syrup, and cookies until the cookies are distributed throughout. Do not overmix if you want a swirl effect.
Arrange the extra Oreo cookies on top, as garnish. A friend suggested also sprinkling miniature marshmallows on top for garnish.
This would make a pretty good pie filling, with an Oreo (or other type of) crust. You may need to double the recipe for a pie.
