Chocolate Oreo Mousse Cake

I am going to confess up front....this is a box mix recipe.  But I always like to post things on my blog that are yummy and worth making.  This definitely makes the cut.  
I use to buy these mixes when Korry and I were first married, but over the years I've gotten a little "snobby" and quit buying them.  
At the grocery store last week, Korry found them in the jello isle and announced he wanted me to make it for Sunday dinner...for old times sake.  He also wanted "Shake and Bake" chicken. 
When "Mr. Picky" asks for something, I don't argue.  
My kids LOVED it and I made my food-snobby-self feel better by adding whipped cream and a raspberry.  I'm going to stock up on these mixes for my food storage!  The cheesecake mixes are just as good and they cost about the same (or less) than a package of Oreos.  

2 boxes Jello brand No Bake Double Chocolate Dessert Mix
4 T. sugar
1 stick butter, melted
3 1/2 cups milk
sweetened whipped cream
fresh raspberries

Open boxed mixes.  Pour both crust mixes in a bowl.  Stir in sugar and then melted butter.  Press crust mixture in bottom of 13x9 pan.  Pour filling mixes in to a separate bowl.  Add milk and beat for 2-3 minutes until creamy and thickened.  Pour filling over crust and spread to smooth.  Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours or longer.  Cut in squares.  To serve, dollop with whipped cream and garnish with raspberry.  

 These Jello mixes are ALL really good and are so inexpensive compared to buying all the ingredients and making something similar from scratch. There are tons of online ideas using these mixes as a base for other desserts. You find them on the top shelves in the Jello isle.
