The Grey stuff recipe

Beauty & The Beast’s “Grey Stuff”

Disney World is amazing! Not only are the rides and shows awesome, but so is the food!

One of the most popular restaurants there is “Be Our Guest” at Magic Kingdom. We knew we’d have to try, and I’m so glad we did. The decor and atmosphere were amazing, and the food was delicious.

We had hear that we HAD to try the “Grey Stuff” (it’s delicious – don’t believe me? Ask the dishes!) It ended up being one of my kids’ favorites treats, so I knew we had to recreate it at home. I”m happy to report that it tastes JUST like it.

It’s a cool, Oreo-filled dessert that everyone loves! If you’re looking to make a yummy treat for the family I recommend making this “Grey Stuff” recipe. I told the kids we’d make it again and watch “Beauty & The Beast” before it. The kids were stoked!! And if you can’t make it to Disney, you can at least try this amazing treat at home. 😉

Oreos

How to Make the Grey Stuff

To make this treat, begin by combining the pudding mix and milk. Whisk well and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

While pudding is setting up, place Oreos in a food processor (we used our Ninja) and blend until fine. Mix the crushed Oreos in the pudding mix and mix well.

Fold in the whipped cream (or Cool Whip) and chocolate pudding mix until well combined and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

When ready to serve, place the “grey stuff” in a piping bag and add a dollop to the middle and then pipe around in a spiral around it. Top with sprinkles or candy pearls

Recipe Notes:

  • Don’t remove the filling from the Oroeos. They won’t make the oreos paste like, instead the filling distributes nicely and sweetens the finely chopped oreo crumbs.
  • Do not make the pudding according to the box, you will only be using the pudding powder.
  • To help the piped swirls stay firm, place the mixture into the piping bag, then put i it into the freezer for 15-30 minutes, then pipe.

How to Serve and store

Ways to serve: I really love the look of the piped grey stuff on a pretty plate. It’s unique and eye catching, however, you can easily serve it in many other ways and pair it with other desserts. Here are a few ideas:

  • Pipe the grey stuff into individual cups such a s small clear plastic cups. Pretty tea cups would also be fun to use. Another idea is to use sturdy decorative cupcake liners
  • Pipe onto brownie squares, sugar cookies, or shortbread cookies.
  • Use it as a dip for cookies and other sweet treats.
  • Put a dollop on top of ice cream
  • Use the grey stuff as a filling for a cookie sandwich
  • Place in an oreo or graham cracker pie crust
  • Filling for cupcakes, donuts, and other desserts. Just keep them refrigerated.

Storage: This recipe is similar to our oreo dirt cake, which still tastes fantastic when made a day before serving. Be sure to cover the bowl and store in the fridge. Give it a nice mix before putting the grey stuff in a piping bag or serving bowl.

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Though, at my house,  it’s always eaten  within a day or two!

    So you dont add both pudding mixes in the very beginning? It states adding pudding “mixture” in step three.

    Is it really important to separate the vanilla from chocolate, adding the chocolate later?

  2. Do you eat this like pudding with a spoon or is it More of a dip for vanilla wafers or something like that?

    I made grey stuff last night and used it as frosting on a batch of brownies that i made to celebratee a birthday at work. it was a huge hit. I was hoping there would be at least one brownie left so I could take it home to my husband, but the plate was empty early in the day.
    thanks for sharing this fun and delicious dessert recipe.

    1. You are so welcome! That would be so good!! Thanks for sharing that! Guess you’ll have to make more 🙂

    I made this for a banquet that was Beauty & the Beast themed and it truly was delicious!

    Two notes: I put the servings in little 2 oz cups (which seemed like enough for a serving, as it’s pretty sweet) and a batch of the recipe made about 20-25 servings. Also, if you’re using a pastry bag, make sure to get the Oreos super fine so they don’t clog the tip (it was my first time using a pastry bag, so that was probably just a rookie mistake).

    1. I haven’t ever tried subbing for sugar free pudding, but I imagine it would work! If you give it a try, you’ll have to let us know how it turns out!
