Beyond the Book: Christmas Dessert

"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 Delight
¾ 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.
