Equipment

  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan
  • 3 Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • spatula
  • toothpicks optional

Ingredients

  • 14.3 ounces Oreo Cookies 1 package
  • ½ cup butter room temperature
  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 16 ounces Cool Whip Whipped Topping thawed and divided
  • 2 packages instant chocolate pudding mixes (3.4 ounces each)
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • green food coloring
  • 1 package Easter peeps
  • candy eggs (can use Cadbury mini eggs, jelly beans, or M & M candy eggs - anything colorful works great!)

Instructions

  • Spread half of the crushed Oreos in the bottom of a 9x13" pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar until creamy and smooth. Fold in half of the Cool Whip and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together milk and pudding until completely combined.
  • Combine cream cheese mixture and chocolate pudding mixture in a big bowl and spread over the top of the Oreos in the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle the remaining Oreos on top of the pudding mixture.
  • Carefully spread the remaining Cool Whip on top of the Oreos.
  • Place the cake in the fridge and let chill for 3-4 hours.
  • Before serving, remove cake from fridge.
  • In a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, add coconut and a few drops of green food coloring. Mix together until all the coconut is tinted lightly green. Add more food coloring to get the shade of green you want to make a coconut grass for the top of the cake.
  • Arrange the coconut grass, Peeps, and candy eggs on the top of the cake.

Notes

  • To crush the Oreo cookies, you could pulse it in a blender, pulse it in a food processor, or place the cookies in a Ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin.
    If you are struggling to get the Peeps to stand up straight, use a toothpick stuck into the cake to prop them up.
