With summer approaching, it's time for cookouts, BBQ, and patriotic themed desserts! I had originally planned to make a red velvet cake, but then I found red velvet Oreos! I wanted to make something light and fun to go with the ice cream cake I had already made. Enjoy this beautiful and delicious dessert!
Red Velvet Cake (Store bought or homemade)
1 package red velvet Oreos
1 large package instant chocolate pudding with milk to prepare
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup powder sugar
1 large tub of cool whip
If you are baking your red velvet, bake your cake and cool completely before assembling.
In a medium bowl, prepare your chocolate pudding and set aside.
In a separate bowl, beat your cream cheese until soft. Slowly add your powdered sugar until well blended. Once your cream cheese mixer is well mixed and fluffy, fold in half of your cool whip (this will be referred to as your cream cheese layer).
Take your red velvet cake and crumb into the bottom of your dish. Spread your cream cheese layer over the cake. Stick your red velvet Oreos along the side of the dish (with the bottoms lightly pressed in the cream cheese layer to keep them standing up). Pour your chocolate pudding in the center of the lined Oreos and top with your remaining cool whip. I like to take extra crumbles from the cake and sprinkle on the top of the dessert. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
** With the deep rich red colors of the dessert, this would also make for a great Valentines Day dessert or Christmas! Enjoy!
