Chocolate surprise

25 May

My mom has made this recipe for family occasions ever since I was small.  It’s kind of a family recipe, and it’s ridiculous in its simplicity.  It’s got cream cheese, whip cream and pudding, all over a butter and flour crust.  Absolutely delightful.

I’ve written out the four separate layers because each one needs to be completed before adding the next.

1st layer:
Mix 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick) together and spread over a glass pan (13 x 9 in.).  Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.  Cool completely.

2nd layer:
Mix the following until creamy: 8 oz. cream cheese (softened), 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Stir in 8 oz. whipped cream.  Spread carefully over cooled crust.

3rd layer:
Whisk together 2 small boxes chocolate instant pudding and 3 cups milk.  Pour over 2nd layer before pudding sets.  Refrigerate contents of pan until pudding sets and is very firm.

4th layer:
Spread 8 oz. whip cream over pudding.  Sprinkle chocolate shavings or crushed pecans or walnuts over whipped cream.  Serve.
