This layered chocolate dessert is a recipe I have been enjoying since I was a young girl. My mom would bring this often to family gatherings. I was always excited when I saw dessert was going to be this recipe.
Since having a family of my own, I passed on the tradition of this delicious dessert. Part of the reason my family loves this is because when I make a pie, they never eat that crust on the edge. This dessert is just like a layered pie, but it doesn’t have that edge crust. It’s not made in a pie pan. Instead it’s made in a 9 x 13 inch pan. The crust is only pressed into the bottom of the pan.
The other thing I love about this crust, is it gets pressed into the pan. There is no rolling out the crust. The crust is just made from butter and flour. You pulse it in a food processor and press it in the pan. Then you bake it for about 18 minutes. That’s the first layer.
The second layer is made with a combination of cream cheese, powdered sugar, and Cool Whip. The third layer is where the chocolate comes in. It made instant chocolate pudding mix and milk. The very last layer is the easiest. It’s just plain old Cool Whip by itself. Then you just have to give this layered chocolate dessert an hour in the fridge before you eat it.Print
