This is another Kraft recipe, though I think the version I had in my magazine is older than what was on the website.
- 64 Nilla wafers, divided (there is one grocery story in my area that sells these cookies. We found them on our third try!)
- 5 tablespoons melted butter
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 1/4 cup milk
- 1 packet of instant chocolate pudding
- 2 packets of instant vanilla pudding
- 1 1/2 cup Cool Whip
- 1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows (we used the larger ones we had and cut them down)
- 1/2 square of Baker’s Semi-Sweet chocolate, grated (to be honest, by the time this set and we did the marshmallow part, we forgot there was another step so didn’t add the chocolate)
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Finely crush 40 of the vanilla wafers. In a medium bowl, mix together the wafer crumbs, butter and sugar. Press into the bottom of a 13×9 inch pan. Bake for 8 minutes.
3. Beat chocolate pudding with 1 1/4 cup of milk and spread over crust. Top with remaining 24 wafers.
4. Beat vanilla pudding with remaining 2 cups milk. Fold in Cool Whip and spread over wafers. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.
5. Heat broiler. Top with marshmallows. Broil 1 minute or until marshmallows are lightly browned and puffed up. Sprinkle with chocolate (which we forgot).
Verdict: This dessert was a great starting point, but there are changed I would make to it for a better dessert. Considering how long it took us to find the wafers, none of us were in love with their taste. I would replace them with Graham cracker crumbs for the base and maybe some Graham cracker pieces in the middle. Either that or chocolate chips in the middle. I think the chocolate pudding should be equal to the vanilla pudding, with two packets and Cool Whip as well. On top, I would definitely remember the grated chocolate the next time, or replace it with chocolate chips as well.
