Unfortunately for me – this is the closest I got to “Be Our Guest” while I was at Walt Disney World during the week of Christmas – the line was super long as everyone wanted to check out the Magic Kingdom’s newest restaurant! But luckily for me (and for you too!), I can recreate a “Be Our Guest” experience at home – with this Disney DIY Recipe for the famous “Grey Stuff!” (Try it, it’s delicious. Don’t believe me? Ask the Dishes!)
1 (3.4 ounce) pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 1/2 cups Whole (or 2%) Milk
15 Oreos (regular, not double-stuffed)
1 (8 ounce) tub Whipped Topping
3 tablespoons Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix
Edible Pearl Sprinkles
Mix entire contents of vanilla pudding mix and milk in a large bowl with a whisk. Set in fridge to chill 5 – 10 minutes.
Place Oreos in food processor and blend until they are fine crumbs (no large chunks). If you don’t have a food processor, you can place them into a gallon-size freezer bag and smash using a rolling pin. This will take a bit of time, since you’ll want to get rid of all large pieces.
Take the pudding from the fridge and mix in the crushed Oreos. The mixture will be dark gray/black. Now, fold in the tub of whipped topping. It now is a lighter color but not quite gray. Finally, mix in the chocolate pudding mix and stir well. You should now have “the grey stuff”! Place back in fridge to chill for at least one hour before serving.
Essentially we are talking about a deliciously fluffy chocolate/cookies and cream mousse type dessert – what could be better? And while I love the presentation they do of it at “Be Our Guest” – I must say, I will likely just end up eating it right out of the bowl with a spoon. Either way,
