This easy, Easter themed dessert is quick to whip up and a favorite with kids. What’s not to like about pudding, Oreos, brownies, and whipped cream?
I like to make the dessert using different sized jars so people can choose which size they would like.
You can get creative with the layers – feel free to add chocolate sauce, chocolate chips or other candy bar pieces, etc.
Begin with a brownie base
I made boxed brownies because it’s easy and I love the Ghirardelli brand. It tastes as good as homemade, and I don’t say that very much.
Make the pudding mixture
Mix pudding with sweetened condensed milk and a carton of Cool Whip. It sets up in the refrigerator.
Crush Oreo cookies by putting them in a bag and using a rolling pin to break them down. Alternatively you can use a food processor.
Layer the ingredients alternating between the brownies, Cool Whip, the pudding mixture, and crushed Oreos. End with the Cool Whip.
Put Themed Items On Top
This is where the Easter theme comes in. Put peeps, chocolate eggs, chocolate carrots, edible grass, or whatever else you would like on top, using the crushed Oreos as “dirt.”Print

Make brownies according to package. Cool and cut into squares.
Crush Oreos using a rolling pin (in a ZipLock) or using a food processor.
Alternate layers in the jars, beginning with the brownie mix at the bottom, followed by the pudding mixture, then the whipped topping, then the crushed Oreos. Repeat. End with the whipped topping on top.
Decorate the top using the crushed Oreo as “dirt,” Peeps, chocolate eggs, chocolate carrots, and edible grass.
*I often double this recipe and make many jars. It keeps well in the refrigerator and can be made ahead of time.
