Extremely popular recipe in Vancouver, BC. I have no idea where it originated or who named it, but it certainly is sinfully rich and delicious

Instructions Checklist

  • Place margarine, flour, and white sugar into a bowl, and cut with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press the mixture into a 10x10-inch square baking dish, and bake in the preheated oven until the crust is lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Let the crust cool.

  • Place the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar into a mixing bowl, and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Gently stir in the whipped topping until well combined, and spread the mixture over the crust in an even layer.

  • Place milk in a mixing bowl, and beat the chocolate and vanilla pudding mixes into the milk with an electric mixer until the mixture is smooth and thickened, about 2 minutes. Spread the pudding layer over the cream cheese layer.

  • Pour the cream into a mixing bowl, and whip to soft peaks with an electric mixer. Lightly spread the whipped cream over the pudding layer, and sprinkle top with chocolate wafer crumbs. Refrigerate the dessert for at least 1 hour before serving.

Cook's Note

Substitute pistachio-flavored pudding mix for chocolate pudding mix.

Grew up eating this as a child (not in Canada). Absolutely delicious! Only difference I did is my crust is 2 sticks of butter 1 cup of flour and 1 cup chopped pecans. 350 and bake for 25. I also added some powdered sugar to the whipped cream. Thanks for posting this recipe. I love it and encourage others to try. Read More

I fixed this according to directions & 3 cups of milk mixed with both puddings makes for too thick of pudding layer & 2 packages of cream cheese layer was over powering. Other versions of this recipe call for 1 pkg of cream cheese and 3 cups of milk mixed with vanilla pudding and 3 cups milk mixed with chocolate pudding & they are layered, not mixed together. Needs to be some clarification in directions. Read More

My family has been making this recipe for years. The only change we make is to add butter to the crust instead of margarine and add finely chopped toasted pecans to the crust as well. Definitely 5 stars! Read More

I made this Treat quite a few times since finding a recipe similar to this. Add 1 cup of toasted & cooled chopped Pecans to the base ingredients & bake in a 9 x 11" pan as directed. Use 2 c of heavy whipping cream (whip previously) rather than cool whip. World of difference in the taste! I use more than 1 c of heavy whipping cream for the top as more is needed to spread in that size pan! Top with shaved chocolate curls chocolate wafers as suggested or just shake some Hot Chocolate through a strainer for even spreading. The topping choices are up to you! You will not be disappointed & this will disappear fast! Delicious Treat & not too sweet! Read More

mmmmmmm! I've made other variations of the "sex in a pan" or "better than sex cake" recipes but this one is now my favorite by far! I double the crust since I was going to use an 11x14 pan and it was a little bit too thick. I think next time I'd do 1 1/2 the amount for the crust. I also ended up using more whipping cream to cover the whole dessert and added a little bit of powdered sugar to sweeten it slightly. I didn't have wafer cookies so I chopped some Reeses peanut butter cups and sprinkled those on top - to die for!!! Very rich but I WILL be making it again - you can count on it! Read More

I was a bit nervous to try this recipe just because it seemed like it would be too sweet. I made it and it was wonderful! Not too sweet a perfect balance I think and everyone at worked loved it. I ened up using a 13 by 9 in pan and just doubled the ingredients for the crust. This treat leaves you wanting more. So good!!!!! Read More

My Aunt Sue brought this "pie" to Christmas 15 years ago or so. We didn't have a name for it so we called it "Sue Pie"....I like your name for it better lol. Since then we have to have this at every holiday feast it's tradition now. I highly recommend anyone with a major sweet tooth try this recipe. It's the BEST and my personal all time favorite!

The proportions of the dish seemed a little off especially the cream cheese layer and while it tasted fine it wasn't anything memorable. Probably won't make it again. Read More
