Eggnog Pudding Layer Dessert - first try using a metal fork

Okay, so I’ve come to learn that people feel very strongly about eggnog.  Either you love it or hate it.  Me?  I love it.

I love drinking it from a mug (half eggnog half milk obvi), in my muffins, in my biscotti, in my cake, and even in my cinnamon rolls.

And now?  In this super creamy and delicious Eggnog Pudding Layer Dessert.  Oh. Mah. Gawd.  Layers and layers of amazingness.

How to Make Eggnog Pudding Layer Dessert

So what kind of layers do we have going on here?

Well, first we have the Oreo crumb crust.  Obviously it’s not your typical Oreo – I used the Golden Oreos.  With melted butter.  Perfect and simple.

Then we have a creamy dreamy eggnog and cream cheese layer.  It’s part tangy from the cream cheese and part sweet and eggnog-y from the (duh) eggnog.

Next up: the pudding layer!  I used white chocolate pudding and more eggnog.

Lastly there’s a simple whipped topping layer.  You could make your own  or use Cool Whip.  Not even gonna pretend I didn’t use Cool Whip.  I kinda love the stuff.

If I had one word for this dessert, it would be RICH.  I mean, that’s kind of eggnog’s nature, right?  Like, can anyone *really* drink a glass of eggnog without thinning it out with some milk first?  I can’t.

It’s one of those desserts that you don’t need a huge piece of.  It’s satisfying in every single way.  That is, if you’re not on the anti-eggnog team.

Since this makes a pretty large 9×13″ pan, this is perfect for a holiday party dessert!  Have a Christmas potluck coming up at work?  Hosting a holiday dinner?  Going to grandmas for her annual Christmas Eve get-together?  This Eggnog Pudding Layer Dessert is the dessert you need to bring!
