Chocolate Delight

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.

Chocolate Delight

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.

1st Layer:
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.

2nd Layer:
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.

Cool Whip
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.

This looks very similar to something I had growing up, called Sundae Pie. This looks delicious!

This was my late Aunt Rose's recipe, and it has made its way through my family...and now my married side of the family. My aunt would be so happy!
