Cheesecake Salad Delight

Aaaah, “salad.” Who even knows what it means. Fruit salad, pasta salad, I’ve even seen Snickers salad somewhere on the internet. Here’s another lettuce-averse one to add to the list!

I took this to a party and didn’t take any pictures there, so there are no cute “in a fancy cup to look nice” pics, sorry.

Ingredients:

  • 3 packages of small instant cheesecake pudding (3.4 ounce boxes)
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 large Cool Whip (12 ounces)
  • 2 1/2 Cups crushed graham crackers (about 18 crackers)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups of berries (fresh, if available)

If you’ve never seen the pudding… it exists, I promise!

Also, for stirrability, it’s easier if you’ve let the Cool Whip defrost a bit in the fridge for a few hours, but it’s not insurmountable if you don’t.

Stir together the milk, pudding powder, and Cool Whip in a large bowl until smooth. Set aside.

In another large bowl, melt the butter. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs and sugar until evenly mixed.

Stir the graham mixture into the pudding mixture. While you were mixing up the graham crackers, the pudding mixture probably got a bit more solid than it was before – that’s fine!

Gently stir in the berries.

Aaaand you’re done. That was fast! Store in the fridge, when you’re not eating. It smells really delightful. Thanks, chemicals!

Om nom nom!

(Woo, recipe type-up speed record so I can get out of the house!)
