First layer is a pretzel crust, second is cheese-cakish, third is choclate pudding, fourth vanilla pudding and finally cool whip. I found out it's VERY important NOT to get store brand items. Yes, it saves money but I found it loses taste. I make this pie for every family gathering and every potluck I go to...Everyone Loves it!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 1.For the crust, pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees F. crush pretzels in food processor or mixed, don't ground them, just crush. melt 1 cup of real butter in the microwave. Mix pretzel, 5tablespoons of sugar and melted butter togather...Press down into a 9x 13 pan. Bake for 12 minutes. Set aside and cool it COMPLETELY.

  • 2.Next, Mix 8oz of cool whip and two packages of cream cheese together. What I do is let the foil packages of Cream cheese sit on TOP of the stove while the crust is baking so they get soft. Spread this mixture over cooled crust and put in the fridge for about 45 mins.

  • 3. Use both packages of chocolate pudding and mix with 4 cups of cold milk, follow dicrections on package for the 5 min recipe. Layer chocolate pudding over cream cheese and put back in fridge for 20 mins.

  • 4. Make vanilla pudding as directed for 5 min recipe...whole pack of pudding plus 2 cups cold milk. Layer on top of chocolate pudding. Put in fridge for 20 minutes.

  • 5. Spread Thawed 8oz of cool whip over vanilla pudding. Put back in fridge for 2 hours, then enjoy!

  • Helpful hints: soften cream cheese foil packs on stove while baking crust.

  • Make sure both tubs of cool whip are completely thawed before using them to spread. I put them in fridge for two days before I use them.
