Chocolate Lush

This is one of Grandma’s most famous desserts. She would often make it when we had a big family dinner. I love to make it for a crowd. It is so yummy!

1 1/2 c. flour
1 ½ cubes margarine
1/2 c. nuts (optional)
1 ½ c. Cool Whip
1 ½ c. powdered sugar
1 ½ pkg. Cream cheese at room temp.
1 large + 1 small pkg. Chocolate pudding
4 ½ c. milk

Cut together flour margarine, and nuts. Press into a 10 1/2x12 in pan (you can use a 9x13 pan, everything will be thicker). Use a plastic sandwich bag on your hand to press into pan. Bake 15 minutes at 350°. Let cool. Mix cream cheese and sugar well. Then add 1 ½ c. Cool Whip. Spoon over crust and spread smooth. Chill 15-20 minutes. Carefully mix pudding well with 4 ½ c. milk. Spread over cream cheese. Let set in fridge for 20 minutes. Top with rest of Cool Whip. Sprinkle grated chocolate or chopped nuts on the top. This makes a lot. Can be made the night before. Cover with plastic wrap.

Sorta sounds like a derogatory term -- chocolate lush! Looks absolutely scrumptious!
