More Chocolate

So, I used to make for Rick to take to dinners this wonderful chocolate dessert called Hershey Candy Bar Pie. Today I got a request for the recipe. I decided to post it here as well. It is really easy, but takes some planning to make it because everything has to be really cooled well before the final step is completed. Mom makes this dessert every holiday and every time we have a family dinner.

Here it is, this is one that is just passed along.......not from any web site.

Hershey Candy Bar Pie

Ingredient list
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans or pecan pieces
6 bar pkg Hershey candy bars
1 family size and 1 regular cool whip
1 lg and 1 small chocolate cook pudding
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)
Disposable 9 x 13 deep aluminum pan if desired

Oven to 350*
9 x 13 deep pan
(Cookie sheet under pan)
Melt 1 1/2 sticks butter in pan in oven, remove
sprinkle about one cup flour over butter, even out in pan
sprinkle pecans over flour
bake until lightly browned

While crust is baking/cooling
make Jello pudding per package directions and break up 3 and 1/2 of the hershey bars into pudding, let them melt in, LET COOL COMPLETELY

While Jello and crust are cooling make white stuff
8 oz softened cream cheese, whip with mixer
blend in all of cool whip and sweeten to taste with powdered sugar up to the whole box

After everything is completely cool (least bit of warmth will make it runny) take almost half the white stuff and spread it over the crust, top with all the pudding then spread the rest of the white stuff over the pudding, take a table knife or tooth picks and swirl the chocolate up through the white stuff. When it gets like you want it, shave the remainder of the Hershey bar and garnish. Chill and serve.

The cookie sheet under the aluminum pan will make it more sturdy and help keep the crust from burning. Remember, cool everything completely before putting it together. Plan ahead, this takes a little time.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. It is very rich. Rick loved it, it was one of his favorites.
