"An old family favorite. Can be stacked to create a multi-tiered dessert. I use the sugar free pudding and sugar free cool whip"

"I have made this many times because it's easy, I can make it ahead of time and it tastes delicious. I do use a 5 oz cook and serve chocolate pudding though instead of the instant. I like the taste better. I cook it according to the directions and let it cool with plastic wrap sealed tightly over it to avoid a pudding 'skin' from forming. When it has cooled sufficiently I pour it over the cream cheese mixture. Then I spread with the remaining whipped topping. Just prior to serving I peel milk chocolate from a chocolate bar-forming chocolate curls and sprinkle them on top. It makes for a pretty presentation."

"Sounds great but I haven't made it yet. What's holding me back is 692 calories per serving. Can that be right?"
