These 53X in a Pan are crazy name for a dessert, but it’s one of the best desserts you’ll ever have, it’s mostly a pudding dessert with a crunchy pecan bottom crust.
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
1 cup pecans chopped
1 cup all-purpose flour
Cream cheese layer:
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup cool whip or whipped cream
1 cup icing sugar use 1/2 cup for less sweetness
5.1 oz instant vanilla pudding
2 cups milk
5.1 oz instant chocolate pudding
2 cups milk
2 cups cool whip or whipped cream
shaved chocolate optional
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
In a mixer mix all the crust ingredients together and press the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Bake it for about 20 minutes.
Prepare the vanilla pudding as per the instructions on the package. As noted I used 2 cups of milk instead of the 3 cups on the package instructions to get a firmer pudding.
Prepare the chocolate pudding as per the instructions on the package. As noted I used 2 cups of milk instead of the 3 cups on the package instructions to get a firmer pudding.
In a mixer add the cream cheese, powdered sugar and the cup of whipped cream. Mix until light and fluffy.
Let the crust cool. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the crust evenly. Spread the vanilla pudding over the cream cheese layer, then the chocolate pudding. Spread the whipped cream as the last layer then top with shaved chocolate if preferred.
Refrigerate for a couple hours until it sets before serving.
I used 2 cups of milk for my pudding, because I wanted a firmer pudding for the layers here, but feel free to use 3 cups of milk just as the instructions say.
