I'm not asking you to try this.  I just like for us to be aware that it's out there.  I think that this might be a good addition to your backpack if you're going on an overnight and just might get lost.  Dessert could help get you through the night.

Here's a real recipe, easy as falling off a Yule log, that might help you get through a different kind of night.

Another thing, I've adapted this from a long ago recipe at  See, I'm being honest...I didn't invent this and they think they own it.  Who really owns a recipe?  And chocolate?  Puhleez.  I'm doing social work.


1 pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix
2 cups cold milk
1 3 oz. pkg. crm. cheese, softened
1  8 oz. container whipped topping, thawed
16  Oreo double-stuff coffee flavored cream cookies, crushed
3/4 cup chopped, toasted pecans
2 tbls. strong, brewed coffee

Make pudding according to directions on box.  Chill 5 minutes.

Stir together crm. chs., whipped topping, and coffee

Spread 1 cup crushed cookies on bottom of an 8 cup bowl.  Spread half of cream chs. mix over crushed cookies.  Sprinkle with half of pecans.  Spread all of pudding over top.  Spread remaining crm. chs. mixture over pudding.  Sprinkle with remaining cookies and pecans.  Chill.  Serves 6/8.

To make this recipe into a Choc/Peanut Butter Pudding, substitute PB filled cookies and 1/4 cup PB for crm chs., and dry roasted peanuts for pecans.

Don't feel guilty.  I use no-fat or low-fat ingredients in this and others recipes.  I can't taste the difference.  Maybe it's self-deception.  But I'm happy!

It's a wonderful adaptation but did you need to add the Peanut Butter choice? I was ready to pass this one up but then the peanut butter? You are so gooooood!!

Okay, Lyn, I figured it was safe to come over, since I've had my lunch.

This sounds wonderful, and not so sinful, either!
