I made this dessert a couple weeks ago when the Peterson's came over for dinner, and holy crap was it good! Vanilla pudding, chocolate pudding, cream cheese, whip cream...what's not to like?! It's super simple to make (just spread each layer out over top the previous), but be warned...it's VERY filling! This would be great to serve after a light dinner maybe, or if you're serving a buffet style dinner with mainly hors d'oeuvres. The most difficult part of preparing this dessert was shaving the chocolate, but you can always get someone else to do that for you. For instance, I had Lindsay do it...saved me a whole lotta irritation! :)~
