Chocolate Dessert

I hope you like my new design.
I was to thank the girls at
I think they did a great job!
I also have a new button...
feel free to grab it!
To celebrate, i'm back with
It's the one I request on my birthday...
I know that there are several different versions of
"better than sex" cake,
I have made this recipe enough, that I have managed to perfect the crust
beyond what the original recipe was.
So, this is my version.
Chocolate Dessert
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 squares margarine, softened.
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
16 oz cool whip
1 small box instant chocolate pudding
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
Preheat oven to 350*

In a small bowl, cut together flour and margarine and pecans.
(I used to make this with walnuts...however, walnuts, to me, leave a weird
film-texture in my I have switched to pecans....MMMMM!)

Once all the ingredients are combined, pour into an ungreased 9 x 13 pan.
Will be crumbly.

Press crust into pan...all the way to the edges.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Allow crust to cool before spreading next layer on top,
as it will not be nice to the crust!
In a seperate bowl, combined softened cream cheese,
8 oz cool whip and powdered sugar.
Spread oven cooled crust.

In another seperate bowl, combined both puddings and milk.
(my original recipe called for 4 cups milk. My sister gave me the WEIRDEST look
when I told her I added 4 cups of milk. I have since been told it's not that much...only 3.)
Make to directions on the box...i.e. mix until combined!
Pour over cream cheese mixture.

Place in the fridge to allow the pudding to set up.
Top with the remaining 8 oz cool whip just before serving.
Make sure you do as I do and SAVOR each and every bite of this dessert!
It really is my favorite!



  1. Welcome back! Love the new design. There's a new cupcakery in Orem with a cupcake flavor of "Better than Whatever". Everyone has their version. :)
    This one looks great!

  2. This is the one my mom brings to family stuff...we call it Sundae Pie! Always good no matter what the name.


Does it look good? Did you try it? Do tell!
