Layered Candy Cane Dessert
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
Took a shortcut and used premade Oreo crusts. Most ingredients measured out just fine —-just had a little excess pudding layer. I had a really hard time finding the white chocolate pudding flavor. A relative just happened to have some in her pantry that she purchased a while back. Wasn’t sure if another layer -perhaps cheesecake- could be substituted. Maybe will try that next time.
Making this now... might be a silly question , but do you just use the dark outside park of the cookie & discard the cream inside? Or, use the entire cookie..?
The chocolate pudding with this was too rich for some people. I couldn’t find white chocolate pudding at the grocery store, so a friend suggested I use vanilla pudding with white chocolate chips. Can’t wait to make it!
I got lots of rave reviews when I made this dessert for a potluck last week. I added 1tsp of peppermint extract to the cream cheese layer to bring out the mint flavour. As well, I used low-fat versions of some of the ingredients to make it even lighter in calories. Definitely a dessert to make again.
Cake tasted excellent. I made the mistake of putting on the crushed candy cane top a day before I was serving, so the color spread over the top and didn't look as neat. Everyone loved it! I will make again for a large gathering!
