"The Grey Stuff" Recipe

"Try the Grey Stuff it's delicious!  Don't believe me?  Ask the dishes!"

One of the most iconic new menu items introduced with the opening of Be Our Guest Restaurant was the Grey Stuff!  Originally, this dish, inspired by the line in Lumiere's song in the movie, was served on a plate only for special occasions.  Now, the Grey Stuff is the icing on "the Master's Cupcake," so that everyone can try this delicious treat!

But what if you want to make the Grey Stuff at home?  Maybe you haven't made it to Be Our Guest, or maybe you have and want to have more Grey Stuff.  I found the recipe online and decided to give it a try myself!

To make the Grey Stuff, you will need:
  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding
  • 1.5 cups whole or 2% milk (or 3/4 cups almond milk or other milk substitute)
  • 15 Oreos, original
  • 8 ounces whipped topping (Cool Whip)
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate instant pudding
  • edible pearl sprinkles (optional)
To begin, mix the vanilla pudding mix and milk.  Allow to cool in the fridge for 5-10 minutes.  While it cools, blend Oreos in a food processor until they are a crumb-like consistency.

After the vanilla pudding has chilled, add the Oreos and mix well.  Fold in the whipped topping until well combined.  Mix in the 3 tablespoons of chocolate pudding mix...this should turn the mixture grey!

To present it the way Disney does, use a cake decorating bag with a  star tip and swirl.  Add the edible decorative pearls (which I did not have), and enjoy!
Unfortunately, my "Grey Stuff" didn't turn out so grey.  Maybe a tablespoon less chocolate pudding mix?  Still, it was delicious and made me happy with every bite, thinking about being back in the Beast's castle.

It would also be delicious served on a chocolate cupcake, just like they did with the Master's Cupcake!

Did you make the Grey Stuff?  Did you have better luck with it turning grey?  Let me know in the comments!
