I love Ice-Box Desserts for summer. Sweet and creamy, light and delicious. This one is based on one of the most delicious candies EVER!


Rich caramel with pecans all dipped in chocolate.

If you agree then you will want to make this!


Chop pecans to make a crust along with flour and butter. It makes a nutty, crunchy base for this amazing dessert.

Bake and cool.

Whip together the first layer of cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped topping. (Cool whip OR whipped cream.)

Drop by small spoonfuls onto the crust and spread VERY GENTLY so that the crust doesn’t come up.

Drizzle with caramel.

Now grab a Symphony chocolate bar with nuts and toffee…It will always make anything dessert better.

The next layer is easy…instant chocolate pudding.

Now make a STABILIZED Whipped Cream.

Do this by adding little cream cheese to the mixture to give the whipped cream  more body and staying power.

Top off with more caramel and chocolate bar pieces.

Chill until set…
