Cookies and Cream Dip Ingredients


Here’s everything you need:

  • Cold milk. You can use any milk you like, either dairy or unsweetened plant based. Just make sure your milk is cold to help the Jell-o mixture set quickly.
  • Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix. You can use the classic vanilla or French vanilla flavor. Make sure it is the instant pudding mix.
  • Cool Whip. You’ll use a whole standard tub of Cool Whip. Though in the grocery store it is kept in the frozen section, you will need the Cool Whip to be refrigerated instead of frozen so it easily integrates into your dip.
  • Oreos. You’ll use a whole sleeve of Oreos for this dip that you will hand crush.

Oreo Dip Tips and Tricks


Whip Up Your Quick Custard Base

Adding your cold milk to a pack of instant pudding mix will make a base for a quick custard that is perfect for a flavorful dip.

By using the classic vanilla flavor, the base of your dip will help you achieve that delicious cookies and cream taste. While you can use any milk you like whether it is dairy or unsweetened plant based, make sure the milk is cold.

This will help to quickly thicken the pudding mix. Add the milk and pudding mix to a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Continue to whisk until the mixture thickens (about 3-5 minutes).

Fold in Your Cool Whip

Next, add the cool whip and use a rubber spatula to fold it in. Work slowly and gently, as to keep the integrity of the structure of the vanilla custard base. If you whip too much you may actually make your Oreo dip too thin, rather than light and airy.

Continue to gently fold the dessert dip until the Cool Whip is completely integrated into the vanilla pudding. Adding the Cool Whip will lighten both the color and the texture of your dip.

How to Crush Your Oreos

There are several effective ways to crush your Oreo’s. Ideally, we will end up with some bigger chunks, and some tiny pieces. The smaller pieces will infuse the dip with cookies and cream flavor, while the bigger chunks will give you delicious texture.

You can use a mortar and pestle to crush the Oreos as pictured below, or you can add the Oreos to a reusable storage bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.

Once crushed, it’s time to add the Oreo’s to the dip. I like to set a handful of Oreo chunks aside to sprinkle on top. Pour the rest in, and again use your rubber spatula to fold the Oreo pieces into the dessert dip.

Bear in mind, the longer the Oreo’s sit in the dip, the more likely they are to lose their crunch. If you are prepping this ahead of time, I would recommend keeping the Oreo’s separate and adding them just before you are ready to serve the dip.

How to Store Leftover Oreo Dip

This Oreo Dip will stay delicious for 4-6 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. After a couple of days, the Oreos may loose their crunch and some of the chocolate coloring may bleed into the dip.

It will still taste delicious, but if you are serving leftovers at a party or get-together, you may way to crush up a couple of fresh Oreo’s to add some crunch.

Oreo Dip Frequently Asked Questions


Is Cool Whip different from whipped cream?

The difference between cool whip and whipped cream is the sugar vs the fat content. Whipped cream has much more fat than cool whip, but also contains less sugar.

Cool whip has a lighter, airier texture and is subtly sweeter.

Pro Tips

  • After a couple of days in the refrigerator, the Oreo’s will lose their crunch and the chocolate color may start to bleed into the dip. If you’re prepping this ahead of time, keep the Oreo’s separate and stir them into the dip just before serving. If you want extra crunch while enjoying leftovers, you can add a couple of extra fresh crushed Oreos.
