Chocolate and caramel has to be one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations. There’s just nothing like the silky, creamy texture of rich caramel and when combined with the smooth, decadent flavor of chocolate – wowza! It’s like a flavor explosion in your mouth.

There’s always a wow factor to desserts with both chocolate and caramel and this layered dessert is no exception.

I took my Grandma’s famous 4-layer dessert and added a layer of decadent caramel right on top of the nutty crust. I never knew that this dessert was missing anything until this moment.

Next comes the creamy, rich layer made with cream cheese and then the chocolate pudding layer.

Now I asked myself – why make regular chocolate pudding when I could make chocolate caramel pudding using International Delight’s Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel creamer??

Best.Decision.Ever.

Loads of chocolate and caramel flavor in every bite make this a dessert your friends and family won’t soon forget.
