Chocolate Cream Cheese Dessert

This is my mother-in-law's specialty.  Yum!

Two crust options:

Nut crust
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2-3/4 cup ground nuts, walnuts or pecans
1 cup flour
Mix well and pat into 9x13 pan.  Bake @ 350 degrees for 10-15 min or until sightly browned.  Cool.


Chocolate Cookie Crumb crust
2 cups crushed oreos (minus the filling)
1/2 cup melted butter
mix and pat into 9x13 pan.  Bake @350 degrees for 10-15 min.  Cool.

Two 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4  of a large cool whip (defrosted)
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until creamy.  Fold in cool whip.  Spread over cooled crust.

2 boxes Dark Fudge pudding mix (4 servings each)
2 3/4 cups milk
Mix together and pour over cream cheese layer.  Let set until firm.  Top with remaining cool whip, then sprinkle with chopped nuts, mini-chocolate chips, or chocolate shavings.
