5 Layer Delicious Dessert

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Melissa Nunnink

This is a great "light" dessert that can be made very low fat using the Lower fat versions of the cream cheese, milk, cool whips. I always make this for Pot Luck's and it is always a favorite. So many of my friends have asked me for the recipe, so here it is!!!

This was amazing and so good! I made alot of changes. I only used half a stick of butter in the first layer to cut the fat. In the second layer I used Neufchâtel cheese and 1/2 cup of splenda in place of the sugar. In the fourth layer, I only used vanilla pudding because my husband hates chocolate. And I left the Hershey bar off the top. So I adjusted this recipe to be lower fat and sugar and it was absolutely awesome. Thanks for posting.
