  • ½ Cup sugar
  • 1 Tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ Cup caramel
  • 1 Cup crushed cookies (chocolate chip, sugar, etc.)
  • Regular whipped cream or chocolate whipped cream (recipe below) or chocolate frosting depending on how rich you want it.
  • 12 Samoa or Coconut Dreams cookies for the top
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix the milk, eggs, cornstarch, cinnamon, and sugar.
  2. Stir until the first bubble appears.
  3. Reduce to low heat, add the vanilla and half the crushed cookies, stir for 1 more minute.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and take to the fridge for 2-4 hours.
  5. When ready to serve, decorate glasses with the caramel, and pour the pudding into them.
  6. Top with the remaining crushed cookies, a samoa/coconut dreams cookie, and whipped cream or frosting of choice.
If you are feeling extra indulgent, incorporate some chocolate chips to the mix. For the chocolate cool whip, simply beat together 1 3.9oz. package of instant chocolate pudding with 1 cup of cold milk, ¼ cup of powdered sugar and 1 8oz. tub of cool whip.
