"This is just like its name--it is truly a delight to eat. Making it is really simple, and it doesn't last long once it starts to get eaten."
Serving Size: 1 (3091 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"This is like trifle. I used all fat/sugar free ingredients and it was awesome. I didn't have enough crust so I added graham crackers crumbs to make enough. Definately worthy of company. If you want to make it ahead leave the top layer of Cool Whip off until ready to serve or it will "bleed" into the pudding."
"My husbands FAV!!! Have made it before but didn't have the recipe, I'm sure it will be better now ;) Made it this morning for our anniversary dinner tonight. Thanks so much!"
"This is comfort food for me. My father used to make this when I was growing up. Honestly, I could eat much more of this than is good for me. I love the contrast of the toasted nuts in the crust with the pudding and cream cheese layers."
"I made this for a pot luck and it was a hit! I doubled the crust recipe because I used a 9 x 13 pan and I like the crust a little thicker. I also only used 8 oz of Cool Whip in the filling. I used two boxes of pudding and made it with 5 cups of milk. That gave the filling a thicker, more chocolatey taste. And last but not least I used 8 oz of Cool Whip on top. I'm not a big fan of Cool Whip, that's why I reduced the amount used. It was absolutely delicious and I will make it again & again, I'm sure!"
"This is better than Brad Pitt! Its a fantastic chocolate after a heavy dinner dessert. The only thing I changed in this recipe is the Instant chocolate pudding. I hate the stuff and so I went with the Chocolate Cooked kind. I think it makes for a Richer Chocolate taste. Then you shred a dark chocolate bar over the top layer for decoration and enhanced chocolaty yummyness! HUM,Watch out Brad, Chocolate delight has got your back! Thanks for the great recipe!"
"Great dessert! Kids love this dessert, especially! It's simple to make and tastes GREAT! The layer of cream cheese filling really tastes great with the chocolate pudding. SIMPLY DELICIOUS!!!"
"My husband loved this recipe. It was okay to me. Personally I prefer more chocolate than this but keep in mind I am addicted to chocolate."
"This is an awesome recipe! Light, creamy and CHOCOLATE! What more can you ask for? Absolutely luscious! Thanks, Britt."
"I sure can't contest a five-star on this one because I've been making it for years also, but by the name of Chocolate Plush. I got it from a friend years ago who won a large dessert contest with it. It's also fun to add some split marachino cherries on top of the chocolate layer as a surprise before adding the last of the whipped topping and nuts. Made with lemon pudding and freshly grated lemon zest in the summertime makes for a super refreshing, cool treat. Glad to see it added for everyone else's pleasure. Thanks!"
"I have been making this recipe for years. We called it Fat Man's Misery. It is so good. You can subsitute the flavor of pudding. I have used lemon (think lemon pie), butterscotch, cherry pie filling. The choices are endless."
