NOTES: Instead of making the third layer from scratch, you may use your favorite packaged chocolate pudding mixed (cooked or instant). Fold in whipped topping. This dessert has the slightly tart-sweet taste of a cheesecake. For a sweeter dessert (lots more sugar and other sweet things) check out the "Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert" on page 88 of Taste of Home's 2003 Quick Cooking Annual Recipes, Reiman Publications, ISBN 0-89821-356-8.
