Sweeten Your Holidays with Double Layer Cheesecake & Chocolate Pudding Pie!

Kraft logo
While families coast to coast have all sorts of varying holiday traditions, the common tie between us all is eating.

Baking cookies, passing the cheese balls, slicing the ham, flipping the latkes, scooping out the sweet potato pie — there is just something about celebrating traditions and family gatherings by coming together to enjoy all things food... and the holidays are an especially perfect time to do that.

However, I also believe that the holidays mean spending quality time doing what you love with the ones you love. Therefore, even though meal after meal needs to be planned and prepared, spending forever in the kitchen deciphering long, complicated recipes is just not high on my to-do list. Can't I enjoy the entertaining and family gatherings without having to put in hours of work?

The answer is yes, I can. And yes, I do. Particularly when it comes to desserts (because with me, it always comes to desserts), I love being able to pull together something that includes my two true loves, chocolate and cheesecake into one easy, mouthwatering dish. Which is why I gathered up a few ingredients and created my very own Double Layer Cheesecake & Chocolate Pudding Pie.

Is there anything that makes my taste buds dance more than tasty chocolate mixed with creamy cheesecake? I wasn't completely sure how this dessert was going to turn out, but I'm thrilled that I gave it a try as it is just so easy to make and just so yummy to eat!

Starting with a few of my favorite Kraft brands...

After it received a top layer of COOL WHIP...

...and some grated BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate right on top, it was ready to serve!

Whether you are bringing this to a potluck or serving it at your own holiday party, your family and friends will take one bite and think that this is a complicated, time-consuming dish (you can even easily customize this with berries, nuts, caramels, peppermint and more). Little do they have to know that your mixer did the majority of the work!
