Four-Layer Chocolate Dessert Recipe

I grew up on these nutty, chocolatey layered treats. Now I make them for both my mom and myself, since I know she loves them, too.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cold butter
1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted, divided
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 8 ounce cartons frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
2 1/2 cups 2% milk
2 3.9 ounce packages instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
Chocolate syrup

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place flour in a small bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in 1/2 cup walnuts. Press onto bottom of an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake until light golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth; fold in one carton whipped topping. Spread over crust. In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix 2 minutes. Gently spread over cream cheese layer. Top with remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with chocolate chunks and remaining walnuts. Refrigerate until cold.

3. Cut into bars. Just before serving, drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Servings: 15

To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350 degrees oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
