So, what exactly is “The Grey Stuff”?


We had some Main Streeter’s ask if we know what’s in The Grey Stuff at Be Our Guest Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom at WDW. Well, we have an idea of what’s in it, and it’s pretty easy to make! Here’s the recipe below, so you can try your hand at making The Grey Stuff at home! **This is not the “official” recipe that the Chef’s use at Be Our Guest, as that is top secret, but it’s something similar for you to try!**

“Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious!
Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes!…”

“The 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

Here’s how to make it…..

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.

    Ours turned out a very dark grey, almost brown. Tastes wonderful anyway and it was fun to make!
