  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Make drop cookies as directed on pouch. Cool completely, at least 20 minutes.

    In food processor, process half of the cookies to coarse crumbs. Remove to large bowl. Process remaining cookies to coarse crumbs; add to bowl. Stir in 1/3 cup melted butter until well blended. In ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, press cookie crumb mixture firmly in bottom. Set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping down side of bowl frequently. Beat in 2 cups whipped topping. Stir in 1/2 cup of the crushed candies. Spread over cookie crust.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, beat dry pudding mixes and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Spread evenly over cream cheese layer. Drop remaining whipped topping by spoonfuls over pudding layer; spread evenly. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours.
  • 5
    When ready to serve, sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup crushed candies on top. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pieces.

Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • To easily crush peppermint candy canes, place unwrapped candy canes in large food-storage plastic bag; seal, and use rolling pin to coarsely crush.
