Blueberry Delight Ingredients

Blueberry Delight raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 1 package graham crackers 9 crackers
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 16 ounces Cool Whip
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup pecans chopped
  • 2 cans blueberry pie filling 21-ounce cans
  • white chocolate bar to make curls for topping (optional)
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans for topping (optional)

Substitutions and Additions

OREO CRUST: Instead of a graham cracker crust you can make a cookie crust with crushed golden Oreos. Use a package (14.3 ounces) of Oreos and add them whole (with filling) to the food processor with the butter. 

TOPPINGS: This recipe is fun to customize with your favorite toppings. Some popular options are crushed graham cracker crumbs or golden Oreos, white chocolate chips, chopped pecans or walnuts, or fresh blueberries during the summer-time. 

WHIPPED CREAM: You can either use a whipped topping or make your own whipped cream for the creamy cream cheese layer.

LEMON: Lemon and blueberry are such natural flavors to combine. Add a bit of lemon zest or lemon juice to the cream cheese mixture for a burst of citrus flavor.

How to Make This Blueberry Delight Recipe

PRO TIP: It’s highly recommended to make this delicious dessert a day ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight. This will allow it to thicken and makes it easier to cut into slices. 

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F.

STEP TWO: In a food processor, pulse the graham crackers and pecans until finely chopped.

PRO TIP: Instead of using a food processor, you can also put your graham crackers and pecans into a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.

STEP THREE: In a large bowl stir together the melted butter, ¼ cup sugar, and graham cracker mixture until the sugar is completely absorbed.

STEP FOUR: Press the mixture into a 9×13-inch pan, creating an even layer on the bottom.

STEP FIVE: Bake for 8 minutes and allow it to cool completely before starting the 2nd layer.

PRO TIP: Double check that your baked crust is completely cool before going on to your second layer. It’s important that the crust is cooled so that the following layers set properly on top of it.

STEP SIX: In a large bowl mix together the cream cheese, half of the cool whip (8 ounces), and powdered sugar. Spread over the crust.
