Chocolate Delight with Pecan Crust

Also known as chocolate lasagna and Better Than Sex Cake, you don’t even need to try it to know how heavenly it is.

This dessert has five whopping layers of sweet decadence, and they all work hand in hand to give you a most sensational experience.

It starts with a buttery shortbread crust made with pecans and butter, followed by layers of cheesecake filling, chocolate pudding, and whipped cream. 

The whole thing is topped off with a generous sprinkling of chopped pecans. 

It’s the kind of sweet you’ll want a second slice of!

This easy chocolate delight recipe really lives up to its name, with a pecan crust, cheesecake and chocolate pudding filling, and whipped cream on top.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup pecans, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 2 (4-ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine flour, chopped pecans, and softened margarine or butter until the mixture looks like wet sand. Press the crust mixture into a 9×13-inch baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. Allow the crust to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, beat together softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and whipped topping with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Spread the filling evenly onto the cooled crust. Set aside.
  • Whisk together chocolate pudding and milk as directed in the package. Spread the pudding mixture evenly on top of the cream cheese filling. Top with whipped topping and chopped pecans. Let the pie set in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Serve, slice, and enjoy!
