Sex in a Pan (a chocolate and Cool Whip dessert)


It’s not what you think. Or maybe it is.

I can’t remember who gave me the recipe for this chocolate dessert, but it’s been in my binder full of recipe clippings for years. I made it for a girls’ potluck supper yesterday and it was a hit.


First layer:

  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 3 tsp. sugar

Second layer:

  • 1 pkg cream cheese (you can use a low fat version)
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 large tub Cool Whip

Third layer:

  • 1 pkg. chocolate instant pudding
  • 1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
  • 2 cups milk

Fourth layer:

  • 1/2 large tub Cool Whip

You need a 9×13 inch pan, lightly greased.

  • First layer: cut butter into flour, add nuts and sugar; spread into pan. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cool.
  •  Second layer: Mix cream cheese, icing sugar and Cool Whip together with an electric beater; spread over first layer.
  • Third layer: Mix chocolate and vanilla pudding powder and milk with electric mixer; spread over second layer.
  • Fourth layer: Spread Cool Whip over top.

You can grate some chocolate over top to decorate.
