Party Dessert

JoAnne Burt


This recipe is a childhood favorite from Thanksgiving when our family all merged together at one of three homes, ours, my aunt shirley's, or my aunt sue's. My mom was usually the one who made it, and we couldn't wait till Thanksgiving Day to indulge our selves with this very rich cloud of crust,pudding, and coolwhip. i hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

depends on how big you cut your bars
20 Min
20 Min


1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 c
butter, softened
1/2 c
chopped nuts (i prefer pecans, but you can use walnuts if you like)
8 oz
cream cheese softened
1 c
powdered sugar
1 c
cool whip
1 pkg
instant vanilla pudding
1 pkg
instant chocolate pudding
1 1/2 c
milk for each pudding mix


1Mix the flour, butter and nuts together for the crust,and press into bottom of 13x9 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Crust will look bubbly on top when it comes out of the oven but will set as it cools. Let cool completely
2For the first layer mix together the cream cheese,powdered sugar and cool whip. when crust is cooled spread on top of crust.
3Mix the vanilla pudding mix with 1 1/2 cups of milk and spread over the first layer. Mix the chocolate pudding mix with 1 1/2 cups of milk and spread over the vanilla layer. Top with remaining cool whip and decorate with Hershey Candy Bar shavings(optional). Chill until set and cut into bars. This is very rich but you will be tempted to eat much more than one bar after you have tasted it.
