  • 2 boxes (3.4 ounce each) instant chocolate pudding mix

  • 1 cup pastel M&M's, for garnish

    1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar until fluffy. Set aside.
    2. In a bowl, whisk together the milk with instant pudding, until no clumps appear.
    3. Pour pudding mix into cream cheese mixture. Beat until well blended, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
    4. Fold in Cool Whip.
    5. Arrange in a 13x9 dish by ppressing half the Oreos on bottom, topped with the filling and then topped with the remaining oreos. 
    6. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until set. When ready to serve, sprinkle top of cake with M&M's candy and add one PEEP to each slice of cake.
