Ice Cream and Pudding Dessert

This Candy Land Dessert made of pudding, ice cream and Heath bars is a family favorite!  Dirt pudding is everywhere, but this recipe puts a rich twist on a common cookie and pudding dessert.  I asked my husband to describe this recipe and he said, “It’s DELICIOUS!”

My mom has made this recipe several times and my family LOVES it!  It tastes great the first day and even better the second day!  I’m not sure if we’ve ever had any last until the third day.

Ice Cream and Pudding Dessert

The base layer of Lorna Doone cookies and butter is rich.  Next is my favorite layer, the vanilla ice cream and pudding.  Spread with whipped topping, sprinkle with Heath candy bar bites and this is a unique and memorable dessert!

Everything mixes and spreads easier when the ice cream has been softened and the whipped topping is at room temperature.  One time I tried to make this recipe with cook and serve pudding and that did not work.  As long as instant pudding is used this is a great dessert!
