"This is a very quick and simple no bake dessert cake. I've been making it for years without a written recipe. I have also tried it with different flavors such as Coconut/Pineapple. This recipe lends itself well to experimentation. Note: If desired, chopped nuts may be added to the pudding before spreading over cake, or may be sprinkled over the top of the pudding before adding the whipped topping layer." — LMDINCO

I am 9 years old. This was very good.It was also quick,and really easy because I was able to make this recipe. My sisters that are younger than me loved it!!!!!!!!!
I agree. I'm confused. Do you use a box of each type of pudding, or just 1 box of instant?
Sounds like a good recipe. I will try it, but first need to know how much pudding to use.
I made this but with a few changes. I used a mix rather than store bought cake. Instead of tearing the cake into pieces, I cut it into 3 layers. I then "frosted" each the bottom and middle layers with the pudding and used the whipped cream as a frosting. You still have to be careful not to get the pudding into the whipped cream, but I think it was much prettier this way and seemed more appropriate for a birthday cake. Very yummy!
Editor Note: The pudding ingredient in this recipe was changed to "instant" at the recipe submitter's request.
**Directions don't sound like there is supposed to be regular AND instant pudding. Am I missing something?
Extra chocolate is never a bad thing!
First of all, this recipe was exceptionally easy and delicious. The cool thing is it can be any kind of pudding. I put in banana pudding and chopped bananas instead of chocolate and it tasted ~amazing~. It was also for my mother for mother's day and she loved it. We ate all of it in two days! Thanks a ton for putting this on allrecipes.
Wonderful recipe! If your looking for a low cal, low fat, and low cholesterol dessert, that young and old will love. This is it! Thank you Linda!
We made this when I was growing up, but we would use vanilla pudding and instead of the chocolate sprinkled on top, we would break up a butterfinger bar instead. Delicious!!
