If you want a cool dessert for the warm days of spring and summer this is what you want to make. It is so easy but so tasty and easy to make. I got this recipe from my mother in law. The original recipe has a pecan shortbread type crust but my husband is anti nuts in anything other than a candy bar or by themselves so I make this with a graham cracker crust. I will put the recipe for the pecan crust but know that you can make it either way and it is still tasty.
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1 stick butter, softened
Mix all together and press into a 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 until light brown. Let cool. YOu may also use a graham cracker crust also. Use 2 cup graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mix together and press into the pan. (no need to bake)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cool whip or whipped cream(homemade)
Beat the cream cheese with the sugar until fluffy. Add the cool whip or whipped cream and mix well. Spread over the crust.
Mix 1 large box of instant chocolate pudding with 1 1/2 cups milk until thick and combined. Spread over the cream cheese layer.
Mix one large box of instant vanilla pudding with 1 1/2 cups milk until thick and combined. Spread over the chocolate pudding layer.
Spread enough cool whip or whipped cream to cover the vanilla pudding layer.
Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight and then cut and serve. Keep in the fridge. YOu may also garnish with grated chocolate , chocolate curls , or additional chopped pecans.
