Here is one you all might be familiar with about 20 yrs ago my neighbor made this for me and wow you just cannot get enough of this desert which can be bad. So I made it a few times for large cook outs and a Christmas party I was cursed and revered all in the same breath this dish is so simple and insanely good. Try it I dare you. Bet you just can have one bite.

1 c
1 stick
butter, softened
1 c
finely chopped nuts ( i use peanuts) you will need more at the end
8oz packaged of cream cheese
1 c
powdered sugar
1 c
cool whip (buy the large container)
3 oz instant chocolate pudding
3 oz instant vanilla pudding
3 c
cold milk
large good chocolate bar & extra chopped nuts
1/2 c
peanut butter


11st layer: Mix the flour, butter & finely chopped nuts and pat into 13x9 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool.
22nd layer: mix the cream cheese, peanut butter, powdered sugar and 1c of the cool whip till well blended and spread over the cooled note here I have made this with out the peanut butter and it is still really good so if you dont want to use it for some reason feel free to leave it out
33rd layer: beat both instant puddings with the milk till thick and spread over the cream cheese layer
44th layer: cover with the remaining cool whip, then grate a chocolate bar personally I used 3 or 4 Hershey bars, then sprinkle on top chop some nuts sprinkle on top I tend to mix these together and then sprinkle, Store in refrigerator for at least a few hours before serving
5Tips: as always you can modify this to your liking if you don’t like chocolate (like there is anyone out there) you can switch up the puddings, if you hate peanuts use almonds macadamias whatever you like I do however find cashews tend to burn very quickly when cooking so try and stick with a not so delicate nut the peanuts work so very well, the toppings the world is your oyster, crushed toffee yum so you can see the possibilities. Mind you the original recipe is really amazing
