Easter has always been my favorite holiday. Although I say the same about Thanksgiving and Christmas, there is something extra special about Easter. Be it the refresh of spring or the meaning it holds, I just love the simplicity of it and Easter Sunday mass was always my favorite growing up.
Of course my love for Easter has a lot to do with all the wonderful food that goes along with it.
Today I am sharing the easiest Easter dessert ever. If you need to whip something up in a hurry, this is the go to recipe for you and there are a million ways you can add your own twist to it!
Let's get to it shall we?
Golden Oreo Cake
~ 1 lb bag Golden Oreos
~ 1 12oz tup Regular Cool Whip
~ 1 bag Easter M&M's
~ 10 pieces of mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
1 cup cold milk (or just enough to dip your Oreos in)
~ Have your 8"x 8" glass baking dish ready.
~Dip Oreos in milk and then line the bottom of the baking dish with the moist Oreos.
~Layer a good amount of the Cool Whip on top of the Oreos.
~Sprinkle your M&M's & Reese's Peanut Butter Cups on top of the Cool Whip layer.
~Then add another layer of Oreos dipped in milk.
~Add another layer of Cool Whip.
~Be sure you have enough room for your final layer of yumminess (is that even a word??)!!
~Add a few Oreo's and M&M's into a mini food processor. If you don't own one of these then simply use a Ziplock bag and crush everything up in the bag. I usually use a rolling pin to be sure everything is crushed up nicely!
~ This is what it should look like after you chop it up!
~Sprinkle the mixture of yumminess over your top layer of Cool Whip!
In the words of one of my favorite chef's Ina Garten,
"How easy was that???"
There are really a million different takes on this easy dessert, but I thought I would keep it festive!
You can switch out the Oreos for any flavor, use whipped cream instead of Cool Whip and what ever candy is your favorite. When I put this dessert together I used the left over candy that we filled our Easter eggs with! So this is a perfect dessert for all that left over candy!!
I hope you all have a very blessed Easter!!
