Chocolate Lasagne Recipe - Posh Pudding

This Chocolate Lasagna Recipe and Posh Pudding Dessert are similar desserts. Both are light and fluffly chocolate and vanilla with light and crunchy crusts!

I have been using this posh pudding recipe for over 40 years now and it has been a staple for me. The second recipe is just another version of it. Both are equally delicious.

Posh Pudding


1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter, melted

Mix and press into a 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool.

1 cup powdered sugar

Whip cream cheese and add powered sugar. Fold in 1/2 container of whipped topping. Spread on crust. Next, spread with vanilla pudding and chocolate pudding and top with the rest of the whipped topping. Sprinkle with garnishes. Chill about 4 hours in the fridge or 1 hour in the freezer.

      You can use real cream and whip it with a little sugar added or what I use is like Cool Whip which comes frozen in a container.

      Carolyn you could probably leave the nuts out with out any problem. I haven’t tried it before but maybe a cup of crushed pretzels might give it a nice texture and taste. It is the salty sweet that we are aiming for so I think that might work.

        you can use crushed graham crackers.Don’t crush them completely.I sub this for nuts all the time in recipes as I’m allergic too.
