Mmmmmm... Recipe: Sex in a Pan

I love finding and trying new recipes online, so I've decided to start posting a few of my favourites. This one I got from my boyfriend's family, and is it ever good. Now, there's cream cheese in it, but Pat, my boyfriend, DOES NOT eat cream cheese... but he loves this. Just make sure it's room temperature so that it blends smoothly.
Sex in a Pan (yes, it's that good)


1 cup ground pecans
1 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup butter
250 g cream cheese (8 oz or a stick)
1 cup icing sugar
container of Cool Whip (35 oz)
package of instant vanilla pudding
package of instant chocolate pudding
2 cups milk


1. Mix pecans, flour, sugar and butter and press into a 9x12" pan. It's best if the butter is soft so that it mixes nicely, but it can still be grainy. Bake at 325F for 25 min. It'll just start getting golden around the edges. Now let it cool completely.

2. Mix softened cream cheese, icing sugar and half of the Cool Whip. Spread onto cooled crust.

3. Beat the vanilla pudding with 1 cup of milk. Note: the package will call for 2 cups of milk, but only use 1. Spread on top of the cream cheese mixture and let set. This won't take too long.

4. Now beat the chocolate pudding with the other cup of milk (again, only 1 cup). Spread this on top of the vanilla layer and let set.

5. Cover with the remainder of the Cool Whip. Garnish with shaved chocolate if you wish. Serve cold.

Trust me... this is delicious. I made this Saturday night and we've already eaten half the pan. These pictures were from my lunch. Try it tonight, you won't be disappointed!

mmm...looks yummy, but i don't like cream cheese either :P ... but I often eat it when it's mixed with whip cream. I honestly think, it's just a mind thing lol.
