Light, creamy, and incredibly satisfying - My Oreo Fluff salad recipe is a tantalizingly addicting way to enjoy your favorite cookie by the spoonful! This easy recipe only requires four basic ingredients and can be prepared in 5 minutes!
This no-bake dessert is such a classic it is coming to you in black and white! This delicious treat is the perfect dessert to serve at summer barbecues, for a yummy after-school snack, or as a special treat for any other occasion. This will be a huge hit anywhere there is a sweet tooth to satisfy.
What Is It
Oreo fluff is essentially a delectably light and creamy pudding mixed with chunks of Oreo cookies. Some call it a dessert salad. To achieve its distinctive creamy texture the pudding is blended with Cool Whip. In some recipes, mini marshmallows are added to the mixture as well, however, I do not find them necessary.
If you are looking for an easy recipe for Oreo fluff without pudding, Oreo fluff can also be made with cream cheese, but I call that an Oreo dip because of its thicker texture. It is perfect for dipping graham crackers!
- Oreos cookies - Getting regular Oreos from the grocery store is recommended but any of the different flavors of Oreos will work.
- Packet Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix - Try substituting white chocolate pudding or experiment with your favorite pudding flavors. If you substitute another flavor of puddling I recommend dribbling in a small amount of vanilla extract.
- Milk - Anything from skim milk to whole milk would be a great choice.
- Cool Whip Whipped Topping
How to Make Oreo Fluff
This easy Oreo fluff recipe is an exceptionally simple dessert to prepare, and one of my favorite recipes to let your children help with! One packet of vanilla instant pudding is mixed with milk in a large bowl and then the puddling mixture is blended with whipped cream and crushed Oreos.
You can prepare this fluff dessert in a food processor, but it is such an easy recipe I like doing it by hand or with a hand mixer for less cleanup. The Oreos can be roughly chopped, crushed with a meat mallet, or rolling pin. Enjoy the fluff right away, or you can let it firm up a bit by placing it in the refrigerator for one hour.
How to Serve It
Traditionally, Oreo fluff is enjoyed simply in a dish with a spoon. However, you can use this creamy dessert as a dip for vanilla wafers, fresh fruit, or as a topping for an Oreo fluff pie or a cold cake. If you are craving a dessert dip, check out my Oreo Dip recipe. It is similar to Oreo fluff, but cream cheese gives it a firmer texture.
Any leftover Oreo fluff dessert should be stored in an airtight container, or cover the serving bowl in plastic wrap, then place it in your refrigerator and enjoy within five days.
Oreo Fluff Variations
When making an easy dessert fluff like this, you don't have to limit yourself to just Oreos. Mix in other simple ingredients such as chunks of your favorite candy bars, along with or instead of Oreos. You could even use mint Oreos for a completely different flavor! This fluff would also make an awesome filling for sandwich cookies when paired with your favorite cookies. Or perhaps, I can tempt you with some Oreo pancakes instead?

No, it is 185 calories. Kcal and calories can be used interchangeably when discussing nutrition. In the future, if the nutrition label appears to contain two years worth of calories it is probably safe to assume you can take a few zeros off! 😉
I’m thinking of using this recipe in a trifle. Do you think it has the right consistency?
This is addicting, but sooo good!
