This stuff is DELISH. It will fulfill your chocolate cravings! The best thing about it is it is SO easy to make.

For the crust:

Melt butter and add nuts and flour. Mix well and press into a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cool.

Cheese filling:
8 oz cream cheese
8 oz cool whip
1 cup powdered sugar

Beat until creamy. Spread carefully onto crust.

Pudding filling:

Scottish Eggs

Would anyone dare try this unusual food? I dare ya! I was SO skeptical to try until my husband made me try it. After coaxing and begging me to "just take one bite", I did and I instantly fell in love. We, or he did, came across this recipe from a friend and knowing my talented cook of a husband, he came up with his own recipe for this stuff. It is SO SO good!

12 hard-boiled eggs
2 tubes mild sausage
1 5 oz bag shredded parmesan cheese
1 box Chicken in a Biskut crackers
2 T Italian seasoning

Grind down 1 bag of shredded parmesan cheese (it will make one cup), then grind down 3/4 of the box of crackers. Then grind the parmesan and the crackers together to make a fine texture. I use the Magic Bullet to do this.

In a large bowl, add sausage. Pour about 3/4 of parmesan/crackers mixture, then add italian seasoning. Mix thoroughly.

Peel shells off eggs. Wrap each eggs with sausage mixture until whole egg is covered completely. Try not to make the sausage layer too thick or they won't cook evenly. The egg with sausage ball should be smaller than a tennis ball. Use the remaining parmesan/cracker mixture to lightly coat each ball.

Place aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and lightly grease. Place the balls on the sheet and bake at 400 for 25 minutes or until well cooked.

You may have leftover sausage and you can just cook those just like a sausage patty. They are good!
