For Father’s Day, I made a Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake dessert with a Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust. I found the recipe on Facebook of all places, and will include the link to where I found the recipe below.
This recipe makes up pretty fast and is a nice cold dessert for summer.
Here is what I started with.
I began by pressing the cookie dough into the bottom of my aluminum foil 9 x 13 pan.
I tried to spread it evenly across the whole bottom of the pan.
I baked this at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes until the cookie crust was brown. I took it out of the oven to cool while I began with the layers for this cake.
I began by mixing the softened cream cheese and 1 cup of icing sugar in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
Then I added 1 3/4 cups of the Dessert Topping to the cream cheese mixture. I mixed that until it was nice and fluffy, and then spread that over the cooled cookie crust. I put that in the fridge while I started on the next layer.
For the next layer, I mixed together 3 cups of milk with both the chocolate and vanilla pudding mixes, mixing it until it was thickened.
I spread this on top of the first layer of the cake.
Lastly I spread the remaining Dessert Topping on top of the chocolate layer, sprinkled this with chocolate chips, and yes, I added some sprinkles, just because this is a special occasion and then wrapped the cake and put it back in the fridge. The recipe says to chill for at least 8 hours so I made it the day before and let it chill overnight.
This is my cake when it’s done. I will try to make sure to take pictures of it when we serve it… hopefully I can keep everyone’s mitts out of it long enough to take the picture of it sliced as well!
