Coconut Cream and Chocolate Dessert


I have a new thing for black bottom desserts.  Chocolate layers are just so scrumptious.

First, there was Black Bottom Peanut Butter Pie.

And now there’s this dessert with a layer of coconut cream filling over over a chocolate cream cheese layer.

It’s a variation of a popular dessert that goes by many names.  That recipe is often made with chocolate pudding, but can also be made with lemon.  Both are wonderful.  I decided to change it up by putting the chocolate in the cream cheese layer and using coconut cream pudding.

Here’s what you’ll need: 

This isn’t hard to make, but there are several different layers that need to be mixed up.  It can be made a day ahead of time though, which is convenient.
