Red Stick Mississippi Mud
(Thank you Alicia for the recipe!)
1 stick of salted sweet butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup pecans, finely chopped
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup thawed whipped topping (such as Cool-Whip)
1 5 oz. package chocolate pudding mix (cook and serve)
3 cups milk (whole or 2%, not skim)
1. First, make the crust by creaming the butter, flour and chopped pecans together to form a dough. Press dough into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool completely.
2. To make the first filling layer, mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and the thawed whipped topping. Spread this mixture evenly over the crust.
3. For the second layer, prepare the pudding according to the package directions for pie filling. Allow to cool completely, then pour and spread the pudding layer over the first layer.
4. Top with whipped topping.
5. Refrigerate for at least 5-6 hours before serving.
Sure, you can go ahead and substitute instant pudding for the cooked kind. Most do, in fact. It's easier, but not quite as good.
Some have been known to sprinkle coconut or chocolate shavings over the top layer.
Western Pest is scheduled for pest control the following days: July 8th, and July 22nd. If you need them to come to your home, please call our office and we will put you on the list.
