This makes a wonderful presentation. It is very sweet. Found you needed 12 oz. size of cool whip.



For a decadent adult version of this, drizzle Kahlua on the chocolate cake layer! I have been doing this for years and it's definately a hit.

I make the pudding with only 3 cups of milk and then stir in 1/3 cup of Kahlua for a more "adult" flavor.
