I *might* have mentioned before how much we LOVE Cream Puff Dessert.
If you are looking for something special to make for your family this weekend, you just found it.
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1 pkg (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
3 1/2 cups cold milk
2 pkgs (3.9 oz each) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1/4 cup chocolate ice cream topping
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/3 cup chopped almonds
In large saucepan bring water and butter to boil over medium heat. Add flour all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
For filling, beat the cream cheese, milk, and pudding mix in a large bowl until smooth. Spread over puff; refrigerate 20 minutes.
Spread with whipped topping; refrigerate until serving. Drizzle with the chocolate and caramel toppings; sprinkle with almonds.
Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 12 servings.
What says cozy better than a yummy dessert for the weekend?? By the way, you'll notice I put pecans on top and the recipe calls for almonds. This was just what I had in the pantry and it tastes great!
