*** in a Pan

Yum. This is a family favorite. My grandmother and great grandmother made this for as long as anyone can remember. We always had it at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. They called it simply “chocolate dessert” or “layered dessert”. They also always used crushed heath bar on the top instead of plain chocolate!

  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup flour

Cream cheese layer :
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup whipped cream or cool whip

Vanilla pudding :
