Sweets for your Monday

Good Morning y'all! I got a lot accomplished this weekend and that makes me feel good going into the work week. I had some spare time on Saturday afternoon, and it seemed like the perfect chance to make some sweets that I had been browsing on Pinterest. I took a vote and ended up making this Oreo Layer Dessert. Anything that combines chocolate and cream cheese usually gets an A+ in my book and yumm, it was so good! I will definitely be making it again...I think it will be the perfect summertime treat! Make sure to check this site out, it looks adorable!

1 pkg of regular Oreos
1/2 c. of butter
1 lg box of instant chocolate pudding
2-8 oz cool whips
8 oz. of cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar

Crush the whole package of cookies either with a food processor, or in a bag and a rolling pin. Save a 1/2 c. to sprinkle on top of dessert when it's done. Pour remaining crumbs in a 13x9 pan. Melt butter and pour into crumb mix. Stir it up good and press crumbs in bottom of pan to make a crust. Make chocolate pudding according to package directions and let it setup in the fridge. In a mixing bowl blend cream cheese until nice and smooth and then add powdered sugar, mix. Then fold in 1-8 oz thing of cool whip. Top oreo layer with cream cheese mix, then pudding, then your last 8 oz thing of cool whip, and then sprinkle remaining Oreo's on top. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

And what mine looked like...

And a few more "sweet" things for you this Monday morning...I love browsing on pinterest looking for those fun inspirational prints/posters. I love things like that. Here are a few things that got me inspired and made me feel good this morning...hope it does the same for you!
