This is a great dessert dish, especially for pot-luck dinners. I tried a variation, however. I doubled the crust layer (my favorite part) and instead of mixing the cream cheese mixture and the pudding mixture, I layered the 2, starting with the cream cheese. Then top with the remaining whipped cream and some chopped pecans, and ooohhh yummy! Stand back and listen to the applause!
I followed the recipe and it turned out a sloppy mess. It did not set up and looked bad. I was asked to bring dessert for Christmas and I left the leftovers behind. They froze it and said it was good but, I will not make this recipe again.
I make this all the time for luncheons or special dinners. I layer the pudding mixture and cream cheese mixture (don't mix it all together). It looks great when sliced. On the top I sprinkle the nuts, but I also shave a small chocolate bar. Really gooood!!!
I made this for my dad's 60th birthday, per his request. He handed me the recipie that was one he had for years. I compared it to this one, and decided to make this one instead. The only difference was that his suggestsed you layer the cream cheese mixture and the pudding mixture rather than mix them together. Next time, I will try layering just for looks, but I don't think it will make a difference in the taste. Also, his recipie called for only 2 cups of milk, which I think I will try next time. 3 cups of milk seemed to make the pudding a little less "set". And lastly, his recipe called for grated Hershey bar on top, instead of pecans. So for next time: Iwould suggest that we try less milk, layer more and grate chocolate o the top. Yummy! Thanks
This dessert tasted like gourmet to me! I did follow other's suggestions and layered the cream cheese mixture separate, but will not do that again. I found that more time consuming, you could not see the separate layer and it'd taste the same mixed together anyway. I like to keep things easiest I guess. Overall, this is a great tasting dessert. I thought it'd just taste like chocolate pudding when I was making it, but the pecans and other things give it a surprisingly gourmet flavor. Would highly recommend this!!
This was very tasty! Very light dessert.
I think I would add a little sugar to the crust the next time too. I layered the Cream cheese mixture and the pudding mixture like a couple people had suggested. I sprinkled the top of the whipped cream with Shaved chocolate, skor bits and pecan pieces. Fabulous!! Thanks Bonnie!!
Very sinful! I used sugar-free pudding and light cream cheese and it was still rich! Next time I'll mix the pudding more thoroughly, it was a little too lumpy.
This is a great treat. Only thing I will change about the recipe is adding sugar to the crust. My sister-in-law made this several times for the family and everyone loved it.
