Chocolate Cookie Dessert

HEAVEN...is how I describe this dessert (sorry about the picture...it was the last piece and it looks a little pitiful, but it certainly didn't taste that way). Its full of EVERYTHING chocolate...right down to the crust. This would be a great dessert to take for a potluck dish...OR serve it to your family on a special night (which could be ANY ol' night...because this would MAKE it special)...its a very DANGEROUS dessert to have laying around in your refrigerator if you are the only one home because its too tempting to NOT just snitch a bite every single time you pass the fridge (which would be constantly because you would want more and MORE of it!)...and especially if NO ONE knows your snitching because they DON'T EVEN KNOW THE DESSERT IS THERE. IF you choose to take the risk and have it sitting in your fridge when your home alone, my suggestion is to just eat it ALL, wash the pan and PRETEND it was never there in the first place...therefore saving yourself any explaining as to "what was IN the pan" or "where it all went". ENJOY, is all I have to say! YES...It is THAT GOOD!!!
This dessert is A HUGE 5 star pan of yumminess, in my book!!!

Chocolate Cookie Dessert
35 chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreo's or generic is fine...I used DOUBLE stuff Oreo's because
I love them)

6 T. melted butter
1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sugar
2 T cold milk
1 12oz tub whipped topping, thawed, divided

2 (3.9 oz) packages chocolate instant pudding (sugar free works well too)
3 1/4 c. cold milk

Place cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a medium bowl; mix in butter. Press into bottom of a 9x13 cake pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Whip softened cream cheese (you can soften by placing it UN-wrapped in the microwave for 30 seconds), sugar and 2 T cold milk in a medium sized bowl until well blended. Stir in 1 1/4 c. whipped topping; spread over prepared crust.

Beat pudding mixes and 3 1/4 c. milk with an electric mixer until pudding is set. Pour over cream cheese layer. Let stand for 10 minutes in the refrigerator. Remove from fridge and cover with remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
