The Grey Stuff for Two

The Grey Stuff for Two… can anyone say Date Night?!

In case you’re not familiar with it, The Grey Stuff is a dessert straight out of the movie Beauty and the Beast.

You know how it goes

*try the grey stuff
it’s delicious
don’t believe me?
ask the dishes!*

It’s when Belle arrives at the castle and everyone is showing her around.

The Grey Stuff has always been a mystery… until Walt Disney World created it, of course!

What exactly IS the Grey Stuff?

Well, technically, it’s like a whipped cookies and cream pudding… but also has like a mousse consistency…

Pretty much it’s a cross between mousse and pudding. Not as thick as pudding, but not as light as mousse.

But more delicious than both. ;)

Chocolate pudding and milk come together to create the basic pudding, them you fold in cool whip to create a lighter consistency.

Add chopped Oreos for the perfect cookies and cream flavor as well as a bit of crunch.

This dessert is reminiscent of the one we had years ago at the Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom. It was so good, I was dying to recreate it at home.

The only problem is, all the online recipes give you a huge batch. And although it’s DELICIOUS, my waist does not need to enjoy the whole batch alone.

So I worked hard to create this perfect consistency of The Grey Stuff in a small batch for Two.

This is perfect for an indulgent date night dessert… but it’s SO EASY.

Really, just a few ingredients, mix them up and pop it in the fridge until ready to enjoy!

What you’ll need for this treat:


  • Bowl
  • Whisk and spatula (or fork and spoon)
  • Serving dish


  • Milk
  • Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • Cool Whip
  • Oreos

It truly is one of the simplest things I’ve made! Easy, and so delicious. It’s also so good as a frosting on cake. Mmmm…

If you make this, be sure to tag me on Instagram or send me a photo. I love to see what you all are making :)
