Thank you for this EXCELLENT recipe!:-) Every Thanksgiving we have various pies and cakes so this year I wanted to try something a little different. This was the perfect addition to our holiday feast. Everyone loved it!!! I've already been "ordered" to make it for Christmas LOL! I made some minor changes: I used walnuts instead of pecans and I added a tablespoon of sugar to the crust which I baked for only 18 minutes. Also instead of mixing the vanilla and chocolate pudding together I made them separately using half the milk for each. Then I spooned dollops of pudding into the pan alternating chocolate and vanilla. Finally I took a knife and gently swirled them together creating a marble effect.:-) Read More

We love this recipe...I do make mine with a couple of changes. I use 1 & 1/2 cups of flour only 1/2 cup pecans (otherwise taste is too strong) and 1 stick of butter for the crust...People RAVE about my crust!! Also be sure to use either Regular or Fat-Free Cool Whip; Don't use the light version as it doesn't remain as fluffy. Go ahead and try this. You'll probably love it! Read More

This recipe now goes with me to every get together/potluck that I go to..LOL.. We love this!!.. I do a graham cracker crust instead though because thats how we like it best.. 1/2 cup of butter melted and 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs mixed in... Then pressed into a 9x13 pan.. I have even tried different kind of chocolate puddings like Chocolate Marshmallow and every time it comes out great!!! Kiki (Brampton Ont Canada) Read More

25 minutes is too long to bake the crust. After i burned it the first time i tried again and baked it for about 10-15 minutes. Aside from that it was awesome!! Read More

This is my standby quick and easy dessert. I have even started making it with Splenda rather than powdered sugar SF puddings and lite whipped topping since my brother-in-law is diabetic and I figured the rest of us could probably stand to miss out on a bit of sugar. I've kept the changes a secret though and my family gobbles it up as usual with nothing but praise! Read More

Fabulous! Took another reviewer's advice and used 1/2 cup pecans and 1-1/2 cups flour for the crust. I also add a tablespoon of sugar. The crust is my favorite part of the dessert! Hubby loves it too; definitely a summer time favorite. Read More

I used this recipe to make 2 pies instead of a 9x13 dessert and they came out beautiful!! I made them for Thanksgiving dessert and got rave reviews especially from the children! This recipe is VERY easy and definitely a keeper! I will make the PIES again for Christmas but top with mini red & green M&M's instead of the crushed chocolate crunch bar. PS: TIP on the crunch bar; put in a bag and smash on the cutting board with a mallet. Read More

Everybody liked this at the Fourth of July party I went to. It is really rich and filling. I grated a chocolate bar over the top instead of the crumbled candy. Read More
