Meemaw’s 4-layer chocolate dessert.

When we traveled to my Meemaw and Pawpaw’s house as children, Meemaw had all of our favorites waiting.  I remember her spaghetti, which I think contained about a tablespoon or more of sugar.  Good stuff.  Megan remembers Meemaw’s 4-layer chocolate dessert.  We celebrated Megan’s birthday tonight and she requested that dessert.  Boy, is it good.

4-layer chocolate dessert

1st layer


2 sticks melted butter

1 cup flour

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Press into a 13 by 9 inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Cool completely.

2nd layer


8 ounces cream cheese

1 cup powdered sugar

1 1/2 cup cool whip

Spread onto the first layer.

3rd layer

Mix 1 large and 1 small chocolate instant pudding mixes with 4 cups of milk.

Spread onto the dessert.

4th layer

Top with cool whip and grate chocolate on top.

Oh my.  It doesn’t meet any organic/whole foods living standard, but it sure does taste like Meemaw’s house.  And that is a good thing.

Even Fletcher (in all of his pink-bib glory) liked it.
