Thanks for your WONDERFUL photo, Lavender Lynn. It inspired me immed. to make it for Valentine's Day! I actually made Oh so Yummy Chocolate Gooey Layered Dessert (slightly scaled back ingred. amounts) and didn't see your "Panama Canal" recipe till afterwards. Your photo is my favorite dessert photo on Zaar! This dessert is the BEST and sure to please- I will be sure to include this for my holiday menus, too. Thanks for posting. Roxygirl

Very interesting! The base was kind of bland, I think next time I'll add cinnamon or something. The cream cheese layer was something new with the icing added. For the pudding layer I only had 2 boxes of chocolate pudding so I added a box of banana pudding. I skipped the cool whip layer since we're not too big on plain cool whip here. Thanks for something new!

My daughter makes this for every holiday and it is so good. It is very rich, but wonderful. She uses pecans in the crust, but otherwise the recipe is the same.

Reviewed for Taggame in August08. I loved this! The only problem was that the pudding got a little too stiff so i could not really smear it on the cream cheese layer. But i have no clue what to do about that. I used hazel nuts in the 1st layer which fitted well with the chocolate. I will make this again, thank you!

I think it's great! I mean, some of my friends and family think a different kind of nut would be better since they don't like walnuts, but it's still a great dessert. I had to do a presentation on Panama for my geography class, and had to bring a food. I made this, and my geography teacher loved it! It was pretty much all he ate out of all the food! :) Thanks!

Delicious ! Family really enjoyed it. I also used walnuts. I used fat free cream cheese. Next time I am going to use regular cream cheese. Excellent flavor, and taste. Thanks for the post.
