Since I’m a lover of just about anything sweet, it should come as no surprise that I love pudding. As childish as it may be I’d be happy to devour a box of instant pudding on my own. This dessert, therefore, is right up my alley. We celebrated a friends birthday this past weekend so I decided to try this recipe out. I have had similar desserts in the past and this one was right up there with the best of them. There are multiple steps that need to be taken, but the recipe in itself is extremely easy and made for some happy taste-testers.
Chocolate Pudding Dessert:
1 c. flour
1/2 c. butter or margarine
1 c. finely chopped pecans
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1 (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (4 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (4 oz.) pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix
3 c. milk
1 (1.45) milk chocolate bar, grated
Mix flour and butter together until they form small crumbs. Stir in pecans. Press into a 9 x 13-inch pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Fold in half of the whipped topping. Spread over cooled crust.
Place contents of both packages of pudding mix into large bowl. Add milk and beat slowly with rotary beater for 2 minutes or until smooth. Spread on top of cream cheese mixture.
Let stand a few minutes, then carefully spread remaining whipped topping over top. Sprinkle with grated chocolate. Cover and refrigerate.
