A Taste of Disney: “Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious….”

Taste of Disney Unfortunately, I have not had the pleasure of dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant, yet. I’ve tried endlessly to make reservations far in advance during family vacations, but no such luck (boooo). However, I have thoroughly scoured dining reviews and pictures drooling over the food at this new establishment. I might as well have already eaten there. One of the most creative items on the menu is the Grey Stuff from the dessert section. It is just presented and plated so well, and not to mention, it looks delicious. Have any of you gotten to eat at Be Our Guest Restaurant yet? I would love to hear about it, so please comment below!

This week’s recipe is for a copycat version of Grey Stuff.

Thanks to The Main Street Mouse — recipe can be found here.

“Grey Stuff” Recipe


1 (3.4 ounce) pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 1/2 cups Whole (or 2%) Milk
15 Oreos (regular, not double-stuffed)
1 (8 ounce) tub Whipped Topping
3 tablespoons Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix
Edible Pearl Sprinkles


Mix entire contents of vanilla pudding mix and milk in a large bowl with a whisk. Set in fridge to chill 5 – 10 minutes.

Place Oreos in food processor and blend until they are fine crumbs (no large chunks). If you don’t have a food processor, you can place them into a gallon-size freezer bag and smash using a rolling pin. This will take a bit of time, since you’ll want to get rid of all large pieces.

Take the pudding from the fridge and mix in the crushed Oreos. The mixture will be dark gray/black. Now, fold in the tub of whipped topping. It now is a lighter color but not quite gray. Finally, mix in the chocolate pudding mix and stir well. You should now have “the grey stuff”! Place back in fridge to chill for at least one hour before serving.

To serve, spoon into a cake decorating bag fitted with a star tip and swirl onto a dish. Top with a few edible pearl sprinkles.
