Today is my birthday! And what better way to celebrate than with these Oreo pudding brownies?

I first made this dessert back in February, two weeks after Kennedy was born.

The inspiration came from a few different places.

  1. Burken had bought this box of Oreo pudding mix on a whim
  2. My book club was coming over {yes, I’m crazy for having them over two weeks after Kennedy was born}
  3. I also had a box of brownie mix hiding in the cupboard I wanted to use up

Sometimes dessert ideas just come to me on a whim, and that’s exactly what happened with this Oreo pudding brownies.

I’m fairly sure I was nursing Kennedy at about 1 am, and was trying to come up with a way to use up the Oreo pudding and brownie mix. I also needed something super easy to make for my book club ladies.

Enter the idea for these Oreo pudding brownies. And man, oh man, my brownie brain child did not disappoint.

Let’s break down just how easy it is to make the best chocolate dessert you’re going to have in quite some time.

Oreo Pudding Brownies in 3 easy steps

Step 1: make the brownies

At the time of first making these brownies, Kennedy Jane was just two weeks old.

So you best believe I was not going to be making brownies from scratch. Well, actually, my mom was not going to be making brownies from scratch. She was staying with us that week to help me adjust and heal {read her birth story to find out more about that}.

And while my mom’s Betty Crocker skills are significantly improving, I wasn’t going to ask her to make brownies from scratch.

So all you have to do is follow the directions on the box of brownies and the first step of this three part dessert is done.

Moving on to step #2.

Step 2: Make the cheesecake filling

Oh, did I forget to mention that there’s also a delicious layer of creamy cheesecake in this Oreo pudding brownies dessert?

My bad.

Well, while your brownies cool, it’s the perfect time to make this luscious no-bake cheesecake filling.

See, I’m making it even easier for you with this dessert. No baking after the brownies!

Once the brownies are cool, and they must be cool so as not to melt the filling, spread an even layer of cheesecake filling over the top.

Place that bad boy in the fridge and let chill for about 30 minutes to allow the cheesecake filling to set.

This leads us to our final step of this super easy Oreo pudding brownies dessert.

Step 3: Oreo pudding topping

This is where the Oreo pudding comes into play. And thank goodness pudding literally takes five minutes to make.

Once again, we’re just following box directions here. So cold milk and the pudding mix are all that’s necessary for this step.

Give it five minutes for the pudding to set up and then spread over the top of the cheesecake layer.

If you want to get real fancy {like I did}, crush and sprinkle some Oreos on top of the pudding. I do suggest doing this right before serving though. Otherwise the Oreos get a little soggy. Which, honestly, isn’t terrible, but the crunchy contrast is perfect for the creamy dessert.

Step 4: Eat a big slice

Okay, I know I said there were only three steps to these Oreo pudding brownies, but I couldn’t forget about actually eating the dessert.

Because it’s my birthday, I’m taking the first slice.

I just love how the brownie gets soft and chewy under the cheesecake layer and how the Oreo pudding tastes just like cookies and cream ice cream.
