This dessert is definitely one of my top 5 favorite homemade desserts. It's one of those things that I feel like I could eat the whole pan and not even feel bad about it. It has many names in our family, but for the sake of this family-friendly blog, we'll call it the Chocolate Layered Dessert.
You can call it whatever you want, just make sure you call me when you make it.
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
*Blend together well and spread in a 9X13. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Let cool.
1 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 small tub cool whip
*Beat powdered sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Add cool whip. Spread over cooled crust.
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
1 small box instant chocolate pudding
3 cups milk
*Mix for 2 minutes. Spread over cream cheese layer. Top with another small tub of cool whip.
*Side-note: I use real whipped cream instead of cool whip because I have gross-out issues with cool whip. It takes a little longer but it is well worth it.
