This Layered Chocolate Pudding Cake was a staple in our home growing up! It is perfect for parties and can easily feed a crowd! This pudding cake has a delicious crust, a cream cheese layer, a chocolate pudding layer and is finished off with whipped cream and chocolate shavings!
How to Make Pudding Cake
This simple crust only has 3 ingredients that you mix together and press into a greased 9×13-inch baking pan and bake for 20 minutes.
After your crust has cooled you spread a cream cheese layer on top and place back in the refrigerator to set up for a little bit.
The next layer is a smooth, chocolate pudding that goes perfectly with the crust and cream cheese layer.
Top that all off with some Cool Whip and chocolate curls, and you are good to go!
Cut into squares and serve! Your friends, family or party guests will LOVE it!
The secret to easy, perfect chocolate curls is using a vegetable peeler!
This cake can easily be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.
Chocolate Vs. Vanilla
If you’re not a chocolate lover, you could easily substitute chocolate pudding for other flavors. Vanilla pudding is a great alternative to the chocolate pudding and the chocolate curls on top could be replaced with white chocolate.
