1small tea cup of strong coffeeinstant is fine
1 - 2tbsp Whiskyoptional
300mls Whipping cream
15gGrated dark chocolate
15gHoney roasted peanuts
Make up the coffee with hot water adding the whisky if using.
Whip the cream until it will hold peaks (careful not to over whip, you don't want it going grainy).
Dip each Oreo into the coffee for a couple of seconds (no longer or they will get too soggy) and lay flat on a board to cool down.
Now spread a fairly generous layer of cream on the first Oreo and stack alternated flavoured Oreos on their side with a covering of cream on a serving platter until you have what looks like a caterpillar. (Using a spatula to manoeuvre the Oreos helps keep their shape as they are quite soft by now).
Cover and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
Spread the rest of the whipped cream over the Oreo caterpillar with a palette knife.
Sprinkle over the honey roasted peanuts followed by the grated chocolate. (I use a vegetable peeler to grate the chocolate straight from the bar, 15g is one strip).
Chill until ready to serve.
Cut on the diagonal to show off those lovely stripy layers of Oreo.
A few strawberries on the side go very well with this pudding.
You can use any combination of Oreo flavours you like but the contrasting colours look best!
