Yummy No-Bake Oreo Layer Dessert

Yesterday I made this awesome No-Bake Oreo Layer Dessert from browneyedbaker.com for my husband’s birthday dinner. My friend Karen turned me onto it (Thank You Karen). <3
I thought I would post photos of the process and share a few of the changes I made! It is made with Oreos (of course), as well as Cream Cheese, CoolWhip and Chocolate Pudding. Sounds amazing? Thats because it was!
