Yikes, even though summer just began, we have been feeling the heat for a few weeks now. It’s HOT!

What about where you live? Are you ready for a hot, sunny summer?

I am. Well, sort of! I kinda wish summer lasted all year round. Now, I love a warm summer day, but when it gets over 90 degrees and then into 100, well, I’m usually melting! Thank goodness for air conditioning and our pool!

But no matter how you slice it, I’m still a sucker for the sunshine and the summer months.

I like long summer days splashing around the pool with my teen and the hot summer nights relaxing with my hubs!

But most of all…I like sweet, easy, and cool no-bake desserts!

Truth be told, I absolutely hate turning my oven on during the summer, sorry Mr. Wolf! You see, where I live in Northern California, the temperatures soar so high that my oven does not even want to be touched, and if I start to turn the knob to the “ON” position — forget it! At least that’s what I keep telling myself!

So, to keep my family well stocked with sweets when the thermometer soars into double digits, I shower them with as many no-bake treats as I possibly can. Yep, this is a tradition I started a couple of years ago so the house (and me) would stay somewhat cool and I send the oven on vacation (for as long as possible)!

And it works! Me, the house, the oven and my family are all happy when we are cool and refreshed! Just like this Oreo Toffee Layered Dessert will make you feel! It starts with a crushed Oreo crust, layered with sweetened cream cheese, rich chocolate pudding, crushed Heath Bar candy, vanilla flavored whipped cream and topped with more crushed Heath Bar candy.

And after just one bite of this treat I was hooked, I could not stop eating it! It’s true — and you’re going to love it!

This is the perfect dessert to serve at any barbecue or just after any dinner for that matter. That is, if it makes it that far! Because if you are like me, once you start eating this sweet, light dessert, you will not be able to stop! Guaranteed!

Oreo Toffee Layered Dessert
Ingredients:
25 Double Stuff Oreo Cookies
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

1 pint heavy whipping cream

2 teaspoons confectioners sugar
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 (3.9 oz.) box instant chocolate pudding mix
1-1/2 cups cold milk
1 cup (about 4 bars) Heath Bar candy, crushed

Directions:
Add the Oreos to a large zip-lock baggie and seal. Using a rolling pin, crush the cookies until you have medium-sized crumbs.

Pour the crumbs into a bowl and add the melted butter. Stir until combined then pour into a dish. Note, I used a large oval baker, however you can use a 9×9-inch or 11×7-inch pan. Press the crumbs into the bottom on the dish and set aside.

In a large bowl of an electric mixer with the whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream and 2 teaspoons of confectioners sugar and beat until slightly firm peaks form. Scoop whipped cream into a bowl and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Wash your mixing bowl and switch to your paddle attachment. Add the cream cheese and beat on medium until smooth. Add the 1 cup of confectioners sugar and vanilla and beat until fully incorporated.

Measure 1 cup of the whipped cream and fold into the cream cheese mixture. Gently spread the mixture over the Oreo crust and smooth with the back of your spatula. Then sprinkle ½ cup of crushed Heath Bar Candy pieces over the top.

To a medium bowl, add the pudding and milk. Whisk until smooth and set-up (about 2 minutes). Then evenly spread over the cream cheese layer.

Top with the remaining whipped cream and smooth with your spatula. Sprinkle the top with the remaining ½ cup of crushed Heath Bar Candy pieces.

Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Slice into large squares and serve.

  1. Fabulous! and a great story. Couldn’t stop looking at the pictures of the dessert! Love, Mom xxx

  2. This could be America’s answer to Tiramisu! Australia has something similar Chocolate Ripple Cake, so why not? It looks sensational Sheila – I’d devour it in a heartbeat.

  3. I love baking, but a no-bake dessert could be useful sometimes. This looks amazing, Sheila. 🙂 I hope you are okay. Have a lovely weekend. xx

  4. This looks super-yummy! I love that it’s no-bake, too!
