My family recently visited Disney World, where we had dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant. The Beast’s castle is beautiful, both inside and out, and serves not only lunch and dinner, but an amazing assortment of desserts.
“The Grey Stuff” as featured in the popular Beauty and The Beast song, Be Our Guest, is available to visitors celebrating a special occasion on their Disney World visit. It may also be available upon request or on the dessert cart.
The Grey Stuff is very popular, and very delicious! Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes! Or you can make some at home…
1 (3.4 ounce) pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1.5 cups Whole or 2% milk
12 Oreos (regular, not double-stuffed)
1 (8 ounce) tub Whipped Topping
2-3 tablespoons Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix, added slowly so the mix doesn’t turn brown
Edible Pearl Sprinkles, optional
Mix the box of vanilla pudding mix and milk in a large bowl with a whisk. Set in the refrigerator to chill for about 8 minutes.
While the pudding is in the refrigerator, place the Oreos in food processor and blend until they are very fine crumbs – remove any large chunks that remain.
Take the pudding from the refrigerator and mix in the crushed Oreos. Fold in the tub of whipped topping. Slowly, mix in the chocolate pudding mix and stir well. Put the “grey stuff” in the refrigerator to chill for at least one hour before serving.
To serve, spoon onto a plate (as they do at Be Our Guest) or top graham crackers, cupcakes or brownies. You can also use a large star tip for decorative purposes. Top with a few edible pearl sprinkles, if necessary.
