Great dessert with pecan flour crust, chocolate pudding, and Cool Whip®. Garnish with some of the following: Hershey’s® Syrup, Powdered Nestle® Quik, chocolate chips, or chunks of shaved chocolate. Delicious!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 (4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (4 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 (16 ounce) container whipped topping (such as Cool Whip®)

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Mix flour, 1/2 cup pecans, and melted butter together in a bowl; pour mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish and press to form a crust.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until crust is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  4. 4 Whisk cream cheese and confectioners' sugar together in a bowl until smooth; spread evenly over crust.
