"With its fun combination of chocolate, coffee and cinnamon, this smooth dessert is one of my favorites," informs Cindy Bertrand from Floydada, Texas. A garnish of whipped topping and chocolate wafer crumbs provides additional appeal.
Instant pudding mix and cake mix cut the preparation time for this delicious cake that is loaded with grated chocolate chips. I often make it for weekend guests and work luncheons. It always goes over well.
Butter-flavored crackers make the crunchy crust for this frozen take on coconut cream pie. "A mixer works great to easily combine the ice cream, milk and pudding mix," suggests Carol Beamer of Glenville, West Virginia. Try sprinkling chopped nuts or cracker crumbs on top instead of the coconut.
A few handy convenience items hurry along preparation of these rich, lemony bars with a vanilla wafer crust. They get their sweet-tart flavor from lemon gelatin, sherbet and pudding mix. They're not only fun to make with my grandchildren, but they're delicious, too. —Joyce Speerbrecher, Grafton, Wisconsin
At our Wisconsin farm, dessert was just as important as the main course. This idea has followed us to California, where I'm still on the lookout for good dessert recipes. This moist cake is a favorite since it's chock-full of fun ingredients like chocolate candy bars, pecans and coconut.

With layers of crushed chocolate sandwich cookies and creamy filling, this is definitely a “rich” dessert. You can decorate the top with a few wrapped chocolate coins.—Betty Jean Jordan, Monticello, Georgia
I can put this pie together in 10 minutes and just pull it out of the freezer when we're ready for a scrumptious dessert. Feel free to substitute different flavors of pudding mix and candy bars, such as butterscotch pudding and Butterfinger candy bars. —Tammy Casaletto, Goshen, Indiana
Inspired by classic cream puffs, this recipe is a wonderful treat. I've served it at Cub Scout banquets, birthday parties and holidays. I'm a regular baker, and this dessert is one of my all-time favorites.
