This No-Bake Dessert can be made and ready to serve in less than 30 minutes. The Grey Stuff is a whipped pudding full of flavor and is perfect all on its own and even better served on a brownie or a cookie. 

However you serve the Grey Stuff, you will find it’s delicious!

What’s in the Grey Stuff Recipe?

  • Cool Whip
  • Milk
  • Vanilla Pudding
  • Oreo Cookies

How To Make The Grey Stuff

There are only a few ingredients in this wonderful dessert.  Vanilla pudding, Cool Whip, crushed Oreo cookies and milk.  How can you go wrong with this? 

  • Mix milk and Instant Vanilla Pudding and then put it in the refrigerator to set up for about 15 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, use a food processor to crush up the cookies to a fine power.  Remove any big chunks and add to your set vanilla pudding. 
  • Then gently fold in your whipped topping.  Place back in the refrigerator to set up.
  • I used a galloon zip-lock bag to hold the mixture to set up.  Then when I was ready I cut the corner off and piped it onto whatever I was serving it on.  In this case, a brownie!

What to serve with Grey Stuff Recipe?

This dessert is perfect all one it’s own. Adding a few edible pearls on top will really dress it up and would be perfect at a themed Beauty and the Beast part.

Traditionally Grey Stuff is served by itself, however, adding on top of a thick fudge brownie is absolutely delicious. Or try and serve on top of a sugar or shortbread cookie. It’s magical!

Beauty and the Beast is a Disney Classic and with the live version remake it has ignited many memories for young and old. 

If you could only imagine being at the elegant table with a dancing candlestick running around.  Such gentle magic would be memorizing for sure.  You would surely love each part of the meal, but trying the Grey Stuff would be a highlight, I think.
