"Hey, Elizabeth, give me the recipe of that chocolate dessert you always make at Christmas, the one that always makes people forget their diets. Tommy wants to treat his office personnel to a nice lunch, and he wants the chocolate thing for dessert."
"It is good, and it's easy too. Here's the recipe."
Chocolate Delight¾ cup butter melted
1 ½ cup all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
8 oz cream cheese softened
1 cup powdered sugar
13 ½ oz. whipped topping
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
1 pkg. chocolate instant pudding
3 cups milk
Combine butter, flour and pecans. Press into baking dish. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Cool completely. Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1 ½ cup whipped topping. Blend thoroughly. Spread over crust. Chill. Combine pudding mixes and milk; beat 2 minutes with mixer at medium speed. Spread over cream cheese layer. Spread remaining whipped topping over pudding layer. Garnish with pecans and grated chocolate. Refrigerate.
I don’t do mine this way. I layer it in a trifle bowl. I start with a layer of the crust, then cheese mixture, then chocolate, then crust etc.
