This is a really good dessert. A couple of suggestions: Add 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to the crust. Also, sprinkle the finished dessert with finely chopped Heath toffee bars. Delish!!

This wonderful dessert goes by many names. At my house where we are trying to watch our calorie intake, it's known as Dieters Delight! I have yet to find anyone who doesn't like this. Thanks for posting.

My sister-in-law always made this with lemon pudding and it is great that way too, although I prefer the tradional chocolate version. We also chilled each layer before adding the next, as SusieD says.

Oh my goodness, this brings back memories. My grandmother used to make this very dessert every Christmas with all diffrent kinds of pudding. ( my favorite was pistachio) I made this for thanksgiving, for those who didn't want pie, but i used butterscotch pudding. It went over very well. Thank you for bringing this memory back to me, now I can share it with my family.....Stephanie

Wow - this is without a doubt the best dessert I have had in a very long time!! It is so easy to make - I used chocolate fudge and vanilla pudding and it turned out just awesome. I made it for company for supper one night this week, and was going to send the leftovers to work with my hubby the next day, but I couldn't bear to part with it!! Thank you so much for the recipe, Sharon. I will definitely make this again and again.

This recipe is awesome. I've only had it with walnuts in the crust but I bet it would be great with pecans as well. This dessert is so good that my brother used to request it for his birthday dessert! Try it, you'll love it!

My mom made a recipe much like this one except walnuts were used instead of pecans and 1/3 of the cool whip was mixed into one pudding and 1/3 into the other, while the rest of the cool whip was used to top it. Though she never had a cream cheese layer, what a fantastic idea!
