Ultimate Recipe Swap (Dessert)

Here's a few family favorite desserts.

This one my step-mom made us often. I enjoy switching up the pudding flavors, and crumbs.
Stripped Delight

1 1/2 cups Graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Melted butter
1 (8oz) pkg Cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup Sugar
2 tbsp Milk
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
2 Pkgs chocolate flavor instant pudding and pie filling
3 1/2 cups Cold milk


1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and melted butter. Press firmly into bottom of 13x9 inch pan.
2. Beat cream cheese with sugar and 2 tbsp of milk until smooth. Fold in half the whipped topping. Spread over crust.
3. Using 3 1/2 cups cold milk, prepare pudding as directed on package. Pour over cream cheese layer. Chill several hours or overnight.
4. Spread remaining whipped topping over pudding. Garnish with grated chocolate or chopped nuts, if desired.

This one my family enjoys at Easter time, and 4th of July. I got this recipe from my soon to be Mother-in-law.

I made Jello poke cupcakes for my sons bday party. They were a big hit! Super messy pouring the jello on to them, though. But I had lined my platter with paper towels and I just threw away the jello soaked toys, and still had a beautiful presentation!

Your stripped dessert sounds yummy. Of course, any thing with chocolate sounds good to me. :)
