What I'm Baking... Husband's Delight

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

What do you get with a cookie crust, a sweet cream cheese layer, a layer of chocolate pudding and cool whip to top it all off?  H U S B A N D ' S  D E L I G H T ! !

This is one of my favorite desserts. And it's very simple to make.

Ingredients & Directions for the crust:

1 1/2 cup of self rising flour
1 1/2 sticks of margarine
1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional)

Mix margarine, flour and pecans. Press into a 9 x 13 dish and bake in a 350 degree oven until slightly browned. (Usually about 12 to 15 minutes.) Cool.

Ingredients & Directions for the toppings:
1 (8oz.) cream cheese softened
1 cup of sugar
Large Cool Whip
Large box instant chocolate pudding
1/4 cup of chopped pecans (optional)

Using your mixer, cream the cheese, sugar and 1/2 of Cool Whip. Spread over the cooled crust. Prepare pudding by using the directions on the box and spread over the cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of chopped pecans over the top. Refrigerate for two hours and then it's ready to cut, serve and ENJOY!!

Note:  I do not use pecans when I make this recipe. Terry doesn't like any kind of nuts. And to me, it's so smooth without them! To make this recipe "good" for you: use fat free or low fat products. I did and it tastes just the same without all the calories!

Let me know if you make this delicious dessert, and what everyone thinks!
Happy Baking!!
