Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee or one single-serve packet
  • 20 Oreos
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese regular or 1/3 less fat, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 8 ounce container Cool Whip, divided (regular, light, or fat-free)
  • 1 box 3.9 ounces instant chocolate or chocolate fudge pudding mix
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons hot fudge ice cream topping warmed

Instructions

  • Mix the water and the instant coffee in a measuring cup and let it sit for a few minutes to dissolve.
  • Meanwhile, make the crust. Place the Oreos in a a gallon size ziploc bag and seal it almost all the way (you need to leave some room for the air to escape). Roll with a rolling pin until you get coarse crumbs. Place crumbs in a medium sized bowl and stir in softened butter.
  • Press the crust into a 9x9 baking dish. The crust won’t be solid, it will be more chunky and loose.
  • Place cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth. Whisk in powdered sugar and coffee.
  • Stir in one cup of cool whip. Gently spread over the crust.
  • Wipe out one of the bowls you’ve already used (no need to wash). Add the pudding mix and milk and whisk until smooth. Once pudding has set up (just a minute or so), spread over cream cheese layer. Spread the remaining Cool
  • Whip over the top.
  • Cover and chill for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Before serving, place warmed hot fudge ice cream topping in a sandwich sized ziploc bag. Cut off one tip and pipe criss-cross stripes on top of the Cool Whip. Sprinkle with almonds.
