I've made this kind of thing before. I made it in different flavors--chocolate, lemon, strawberry/vanilla, even butterscotch. With some kind of crust, a cream cheese layer, a pudding layer and a Cool Whip layer, they're all the pretty much the same idea.
But this one wins the prize. Actually, none of these desserts knew they were in a contest against each other. But too bad, this one still gets the crown and the bouquet.
I think it's the crust that puts it over the top. It hit my chocolate receptors so hard that I didn't need any chocolate again for at least another hour.
Meanwhile, I'm making progress on Claire Messud's When the World Was Steady. We've reviewed Messud here before. She can be a little hit or miss. This one looks good so far.
Two British sisters hit middle age, hard. One attempts to salve the wounds of her divorce by climbing a difficult mountain in Bali, and she's no athlete. The other, a spinster, worries that the young smarty-pants in her office is edging her out of a job.
At least, that's the action so far. I'll let you know how it goes.
