Decadent Chocolate Torte (too good to be true!)

This desert is better than anything I have ever had!
Don't ask questions!!!  LOL

Ingredients:For the Crust:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped walnuts
First layer
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup of Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream)

Second layer
  • 2 (3.9 ounce) packages of instant chocolate pudding
  • 3 cups of whole milk

8 oz. Cool whip
chopped walnuts
grated chocolate


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a bowl, mix together the flour, walnuts and butter until mixture resembles cookie dough. Spread into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. Bake at 375degrees F for about 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, about an hour.

Mix together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until well blended. Add 1 cup of the Cool Whip and mix together. Spread this layer over the cooled crust.

Mix together the two boxes of pudding with the 3 cups of milk until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Carefully spread over the cream cheese layer.

Spread the remaining cool whip topping on top. Cover and refrigerate - best if refrigerated 24 hours.
