Chocolate Delight

What I know about visiting my Grandma is that you can count on being served Chocolate Delight.  Yum.  Great joy years ago when I found out how easy it is to make - here's her recipe:

1st Layer

1 stick butter
1 C flour
1 C pecans

2nd Layer
1 8oz cream cheese
1 ½ C cool whip
1 C powdered sugar

3rd Layer
2 sm pkg instant chocolate pudding
3 C cold milk

4th Layer
Cool whip

Melt butter and add flour and pecans. Press into 9x13 pan. Bake 350 for 25 min and cool.

Combine all 2nd layer ingredients and spread onto 1st layer.

Mix pudding with milk and beat until thick. Spread on 2nd layer.

Top with cool whip. Refrigerate.

We almost didn't have this dessert this summer at the lake - my grandma wasn't sure if she'd get around to making it.  Quickly I volunteered for the job - I couldn't think of us not having it!

So mix up the first layer and press it into the pan.  Press and press.  Every time I make it I think it's not going to cover the bottom of my 9x13.  And everytime I eventually get it to work.  It should look like this:
Bake that and let it cool (one time I was eager to get it made and forgot the cooling step - my next layer melted onto the warm first layer - oye).

Then you mix the cream cheese layer and spread it.  Then mix the pudding layer and pour it on.  Then for the top Cool Whip layer, carefully spread that over the pudding.  You can top it with nuts if you want.  Then refridgerate to let it completely set up.  Then cut into squares and enjoy!!

My mom makes this same dessert! It can be very addicting!! It's one of my favorites but at times I think it's safe to have a piece or two because hey it's pudding right! LOL -

oh my gosh that sounds really yummy! I love the crust made out of pecans! They are one of my favorites.

YUM!!! i am going to try this! sounds so yummy!!!

I make something very similar to this but my first layer is crushed oreos/butter mixture. It is OH SO YUMMY!! :)

Visiting my Tatertots and Jell-o

We make this recipe as well but always use walnuts in the crust. I just may have to try the pecans...we also make another version, Lemon Delight. Exactly the same but we use tangy lemon pudding instead of chocolate. It's a great summer recipe, too.

Just found your blog and I'm enjoying reading through all the posts. My family makes this, and we call it Yum-Yum Pudding! It is so delicious!!!
