My mother made this recipe for years. She always called it Verna's Delight. I have no clue who Verna was or where she got the recipe. However, my mom usually made this with chocolate pudding mix and then put shaved chocolate on top. It is also very good made with vanilla pudding or one of my personal favorites, butterscotch pudding. Thanks for recipe and the great memories. Watch out, these truly are really addictive!
This recipe is delicious. It has always been a DD favorite, what she asked for every birthday. She recently was diagnosed with diabetes and I made it with splenda, sugar free pistachio pudding and sugar free cool whip. The second layer can be made by making the splenda into powdered sugar with your blender. DD says it tastes as good as the sugar version.
Oh wow, the memories this dessert brings back. My grandmother used to make this for Christmas every year. She would make two different flavors, but my favorite was always pistachio. I made this for my family and they love it as much as I do. I plan on trying different flavors for them too. Thank you for posting.....STephanie
