This Chocolate Chip Cookie Delight recipe comes courtesy of my mom. Not sure what took her so long to share this little gem with me.
Unfortunately she doesn't recall where she got it but a quick search on Google leads me to believe it's been around a long time.
As you can see by the directions below, this delicious dessert is super easy to make. It does require some time to chill so you need to plan ahead. Ideally you would make this chocolate chip cookie dessert the day before you are going to serve it.
While you can pretty much use any brand of cream cheese, I highly recommend you use Philadelphia brand cream cheese. You will taste the difference.
If you spend any amount of time baking, you will find this recipe easy. If I had kids this would be the type of recipe I would want to make with them. It's one of those "lick the spoons" kinds of recipes.
Nut Allergy Warning
This recipe may contain peanuts or other nuts and seeds as one of its ingredients. Please take the appropriate precautions.
You will see on the recipe card that I say to use a 9 x 13 baking dish. That's all fine but this time around I wanted a thicker filling so I used a 9-inch baking dish.
When it comes to the pudding I like to use a combination of chocolate and vanilla. There's just something about that combination of flavors that does it for me. That being said, you can experiment and use whatever flavors you want like all chocolate for example.
