In the Kitchen Thursdays: Striped Delight!

I have been waiting DAYS to share this recipe with everyone! This is an ever so yummy dessert that I am sure is sooo not healthy for us but it is DELICIOUS. I took this from our family cookbook and with permission from the original recipe owner, my cousin, she let me share this amazing dish with you all. She calls it:

"Striped Delight"

1 1/2 Cups Graham cracker crumbs (about 9 whole graham crackers)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup melted butter/margarine
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 tbl milk
1 (8 oz) Cool whip, thawed
1 pkg (6 serving size) Jello Brand Instant pudding and pie filling (Chocolate)
2 2/3 Cups cold milk


Combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 Cup sugar, and melted butter. Mix well. Press firmly into bottom of 9x13 pan.

Beat cream cheese with 1/2 Cup sugar and 2 tablespoons milk until smooth. Then fold in half the cool whip (4 oz). Spread this over graham cracker crust.

Prepare pudding as directed on the package with the 2 2/3 cups milk. Pour over cream cheese layer.

Chill in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Then spread the remaining Cool Whip (4oz) over pudding. Garnish with grated chocolate or nuts. (Which if both I did not have)

The first slice for ME!!
Trust me. It looks like nothing special but it is divine. It's always a party and reunion hit!
