36 Birthday Cake Golden Oreos
4 Tbsp butter, melted
1 box (3.4 oz) French Vanilla instant pudding mix
1 cup milk
¼ cup dry Funfetti cake mix (just the dry powder)
4 cups Cool Whip (about 2 8-oz pkgs), divided
About ½ cup sprinkles
Place 20 cookies in a gallon size resealable bag and begin crushing the cookies with a rolling pin or meat mallet until the cookies become coarse crumbs. Pour the cookie crumbs into a large bowl with the melted butter and toss to combine. Press into a greased 8 or 9-inch square baking dish, compacting them loosely in there. Set aside.
Wipe out the bowl and add in the pudding mix, dry Funfetti mix and milk, whisking until combined and letting sit for 2 minutes. Add in one package (2 cups) of the Cool Whip and ¼ cup sprinkles, folding it in until combined. Carefully spread this mixture over the cookies in the pan.
Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top of the cake batter pudding layer.
Crush the remaining cookies in another plastic bag until coarse crumbs as formed. Sprinkle the cookies over the top with the sprinkles. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours before cutting into slices to serve.
