Chocolate Friday - 4 Layer Dessert plus more!


My week has been full of chocolate. Full! I tell ya'! It all started with Mother's Day. I went to visit my mom and she had a dessert she had made earlier in the week. She had a little left over and we finished it off, then my oldest made another pan of it. There was about half left over from that one. We took it home and ate it the next morning for breakfast. :) I didn't get a picture of it (bad me), but I do have the recipe. It's from my aunt, and I don't know where she got it from or if she just made it up. It does not have to be baked for very long at all, how 'cool' is that? (pun totally intended there) Great for the upcoming summer months. You can actually bake the crust in the morning before it gets hot and it will be ready for the rest later. Here goes:

Four Layer Dessert

Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup pecans, chopped finely
1 stick butter
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 large tub cool whip
2 boxes instant pudding, chocolate fudge flavor
3 cups milk

Directions:
1st layer: melt butter, mix with flour and pecans
press into 9X13 pan and bake on 350 for 18 minutes
let cool
2nd layer: blend cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1 cup of cool whip until creamy
spread on the cooled crust
3rd layer: blend pudding and 3 cups of milk until thick
spread on top of 2nd layer
4th layer: cover with the remaining cool whip

Let it set for about an hour before eating...if you can!
Number of servings: Depends on how well you like it...several.
Prep time: 30 minutes

So, that's the yummy dessert that started all this madness. It went on to include this:



And this:


Then, Wednesday my two-year-old turned 3. We had this:



and this:



aaand this:


Yes, that is chocolate cheesecake. I had the one that was all chocolate.

And the birthday boy got a small cake all his own:


He had to finish it off the next morning, too.

Just so you know, I usually bake their birthday cakes. This time, my dear husband offered to pick one up on the way home. I was all for that if it didn't mean I had to crank the oven up. That way I got cheesecake, too. :) Yay for me!

And every day I eat one piece of this:

It's hard, but I limit myself to just one piece.

So that's why my week was FULL of chocolate. How was yours?

Head over to Lisa's at Stop and Smell the Chocolates and find more chocolate-y recipes.




Until next time...

I don't know how you limit yourself to just one piece of Dove's! We also love the Four Layer Dessert. Did you know if you make the bottom layer a graham cracker crust, you don't have to use the oven at all? We had that recipe this week, but not a chocolate version. Try it with vanilla pudding and sliced bananas and drained crushed pinapple - Yum!

I'm going to pass out from your deliciously chocolate week!! Yum! I have never had that version of the four-layer dessert. I must try it.

I do have that Pecan Pie recipe for you; just need to type it up and send it. I really will do it soon! :)
