No Bake Oreo Cupcakes , a variety of combinations!

This is a clever desert that I found while researching some new ideas for a Block Party.
I don't have a source for these. I adapted several recipes.
I've included some optional choices for flavors.

The traditional no bake cupcake would be regular size Chocolate Oreo Cookies, Chocolate Instant Pudding and Miniature Chocolate Chips.
Other combinations can be made with Vanilla Oreo Cookies, Pumpkin Pie Spice Instant Pudding Mix and Butterscotch Chips or Cinnamon Chips.
Candy Cane Oreo Cookies, Candy Cane Instant Pudding Mix and Miniature Mint Chocolate Chips.

The combinations are endless. Choose your favorite Oreo Cookies, any Instant Pudding Mix and any flavor of Miniature Chocolate Chips or Candy Morsels. Toffee bits would be great  with Vanilla cookies and butterscotch pudding.

Here's what you'll need for the basic recipe:
2 -12 Cup Muffin Tins
24 Paper Cupcake Liners

1 package of regular sized Oreo Cookies (about 36)
6 Tbs Butter, melted
1 - 8oz. package of Cream Cheese, room temperature and softened.
1/4 C Granulated Sugar
2 TBS Whole Milk
1 - 12 oz. container of Frozen Cool Whip, thawed
1 - 3.9 oz. Package of Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix
1 C Miniature Chocolate Chips (more or less depending on your taste)

In a Food Processor:
Broken up Oreo Cookies (breaking them makes it easier to pulse)
Process until fine crumbs, to form the base.
Spoon into a mixing bowl.
Add Butter and mix well by hand.
Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl:
Pudding mix
Prepare according to package directions.
Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, using a hand mixer:
Cream Cheese
Beat until creamy smooth.
Continue beating until smooth.
1 C Cool Whip.
Fold in by hand.

Prepare the Cupcakes.

Layer the paper liners in the following order.

1. 1 TBS Cookie Crumbs, pressed firmly in the bottom.
2. 1 TBS Cream Cheese Mixture, spread evenly.
3. 1 TBS Pudding, spread evenly.
4. 1 TBS Cool Whip, spread evenly.
5. Sprinkle each with some of the Chocolate Chips.

Freeze the pans for 3 hours.
Remove and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes prior to serving.

Peace in the Kitchen!
