holiday feast at Marie Osmond’s house. I referred to that dessert as The Next Best Thing to Robert Redford, which was what it was called back then.
Since that time, I’ve had people tell me they know the dessert buy its new name, Better Than Sex. Hey, what’s in a name, right? All I know it, this dessert is delicious and decadent! Don’t try to eat too much or the richness alone will make you sick.
Better Than Sex
½ c. butter, softened
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
½ c. chopped nuts
8 oz package Cream Cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1 3oz package instant chocolate pudding
1 3oz package instant vanilla pudding
3 c. milk
16 oz container Cool Whip
Preheat the over to 350∘. In a medium bowl, mix butter, flour and chopped nuts. Press into 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 20 minutes.
While the crust cools, combine softened cream cheese and powered sugar in a medium bowl, beating mixture until smooth, the spread over completely cooled crust. If the crust is still warm, the mixture will almost melt instead of spreading.
In a large bowl, combine both pudding mixes with the milk, beating until smooth. Pour the puddings over the cream cheese layer and spread evenly.
Cover the entire pudding layer with Cool Whip, sprinkle with nuts. You may also use chocolate shavings or other garnish.
This dessert can also be made with all chocolate pudding or substitute pistachio for both puddings. Whatever you decide, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven over this yummy dessert.
