I like to change this dessert up by substituting the chocolate pudding with butterscotch or banana pudding. Use your imagination.
butter, unsalted, melted
all purpose flour
nuts, chopped fine
cream cheese, room temperature
cool whip, thawed
instant chocolate pudding mix
semi-sweet chocolate chips, mini for topping
1Mix together the first 3 ingredients; press into 8 or 9 inch square pan and bake at 350-degrees for about 15 minutes; cool.
Combine the cream cheese, 1 cup cool whip and the confectioners sugar.
Chill for several hours or overnight.
2Mix until smooth and spread gently over crust.
Mix chocolate pudding and milk; spread over cream cheese mixture.
Cover pudding with the remaining cool whip and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
