Four-Layer Chocolate Dessert Recipe


Description

This Four-Layer Chocolate Dessert Recipe has been lightened up with healthier ingredients but does not skimp out on taste. The texture is light and fluffy and is a crowd-pleasing dessert.


Ingredients

Scale

FIRST LAYER

  • 1 stick of butter (approx 115 grams), softened
  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped

SECOND LAYER

  • 1820 oz Greek yogurt, strained this will become 15-17 oz
  • 1 cup Cool Whip
  • 3/4 cup Stevia in the Raw
  • 1/2 cup Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
  • 1/2 heaping tsp salt

THIRD LAYER

  • 2 packets Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • 3 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk

FORTH LAYER

  • Cool Whip (the remaining tub of Cool Whip)
  • Toppings of your choice

Instructions

FIRST LAYER:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Soften butter
  • Blend together all first layer ingredients (I just used a spoon)
  • Press into the bottom of a 9X13 greased pan
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Set aside to cool (Very important! Allow the crust to completely cool before adding layer #2.)

SECOND LAYER

  • Strain Greek yogurt for at least six hours using a cheesecloth (this will drain excess liquid and give it a cream cheese consistency)
  • Mix all the ingredients from the second layer together and add on top of the first layer once it is cooled

THIRD LAYER

  • Prepare chocolate pudding as listed on package (beat with manual or electric mixer)
  • Let stand for 5 minutes
  • Add on top of first two layers

FOURTH LAYER

  • Add remaining Cool Whip and toppings of your choice

Notes

PLAN IN ADVANCE: Remember that you will need strain the Greek yogurt at least 6 hours
