Oreo® Dream Bars taste as if they've stepped out of your wildest dessert fantasies: in fact, they might just be the stuff dreams are made of! A crunchy and buttery Oreo crust serves as the foundation for thick, creamy layers of cream cheese, whipped topping, and Oreo pudding, combining to mirror the Oreo filling of legend. What makes these Oreo Dream Bars even more dreamy is the fact that they require no oven whatsoever: just some chilling time and the desire to chill out with a fabulously-fantastic treat!
