Yummy and easy to make. We have a favorite like this but we have never had mini chocolate chips before. My DS said he really like the addition. Made for PRMR.
Oh My Yummy Goodness. Well lets see now, I used a heart healthy margarine, Splenda for the sugar, 98% fat free cream cheese, Cool Whip Light, Sugar free/fat free puddings, skim milk and shaved 70% chocolate in the dessert as well as on top. Ok, that said, This was smooth, creamy, kinda fluffy (it's hard to make cream cheese and pudding fluffy, lol), and downright delicious. :D
I cut the sugar down by 1/2 and I used a premade pie crust, but I should have made one as it was not quite big enough to put the lid on. The instructions did not say what to do with the chocolate chips so I put them in the vanilla layer. It well deserves its name. A keeper recipe but not to have too often as it is very very rich. My son insisted upon color sprinkles instead of chocolate shavings.
