I used Trefoils, walnuts and butter as a crust. The cream cheese and Cool Whip as directed, 2 small boxes of choc. pudding w/4 C skim milk and sprinkled with crushed Trefoils, walnuts and crushed Thin Mints. It was a huge hit at our Brownie Christmas party. The tiny leader took 3 servings!!! Thanks for the recipe!

I made this for a college football tailgate and it was gone in a flash! Everyone loved it. How can you go wrong with those ingredients? I made it a little better for you, by using skim milk to make the pudding, light cool whip and reduced fat cream cheese :)

OMG!! This recipe ROCKS! It's easy and very tasty... but beware! It's highly addictive. :)

When I ran across this recipe I thought it sounded really good, so I served it as one of the desserts at our family Thanksgiving dinner. I used low fat/sugar free pudding, whip cream and light cream cheese, although I did add about 1/2 cup of Equal to the cream cheese. I guess any alternative sweetener would suffice, though. I used sugar free almond milk in place of regular milk. The cookies themselves were sweet enough to add that regular sugar taste. It was a hit with everyone, and I would say this one's a definite keeper for a rich dessert for any occasion.

would not make again with listed measurements. two (2) cups of milk to one (1) 5.9oz package of pudding produces an un-spreadable ball. i added additional milk according to pudding package and this resulted in a wonderful desert. total milk added was 8 cups. of course this makes more pudding than needed. with this modification i will make the desert again.
