This no-bake dessert recipe is ultra-simple to make — just as easy as my ever-popular Pink Lemonade Pie. It is one of those “make in a jiffy” desserts that can be put together in a pinch and make mom look like a champ!
Actually, I had to do some convincing to get my dear hubby to try it. He is so addicted to the lemonade pie that he couldn’t imagine liking anything half as much. I told him “But, honey, I can’t write about the same pie again.” His reply “And why not?” Of course, he knew why not. So, he bravely agreed to give it a try.
He tried it and he LOVED it! I knew he would. The rich chocolate creaminess of the pudding coupled with that white cream cheesy layer underneath is just a perfect combination of flavors. Aesthetically, it looks very pretty on a plate, too. This is a dessert that you can be proud to bring to a party or save for a little private party for yourself. Let me know what you think of it? Enjoy!
