Okay, this is good! I know I say that a lot about recipes on here, but seriously. This. Is. Good. Mmmm, it is almost like a chocolate pie and it's super easy to make. (The picture really doesn't do it justice.) I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Dore. Thanks for another great one Dore!! We had this for dessert yesterday and everyone gobbled it up.
1 cup flour
1 stick cold butter
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (walnuts are good)
Cut butter into flour and nuts until well combined and mixture resembles small peas. Press into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cool.
1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup Cool Whip
Mix well with an electric mixer and spread onto the cooled crust.
1 (3 oz) box chocolate instant pudding
1 (3 oz) box vanilla instant pudding
3 cups milk
Combine pudding mixes and milk and beat for about 3 minutes. Pour onto the cream cheese layer. Place a layer of plastic wrap over and touching pudding so a film doesn't form and refrigerate until pudding is firm - a couple hours.
chopped nuts (optional)
chocolate shavings are mini chocolate chips
Spread Cool Whip to cover the pudding layer and sprinkle with nuts (if desired) and chocolate shavings or mini chips.
