Black Forest Dessert

I made this for Don's dads birthday dessert. I got the recipe 15 years ago from someone in Green Bay. This time the pudding didn't set up firm enough so it was hard to get out of the pan. It tasted great!

1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c sugar
1/3 c melted butter or margarine
1 can cherry pie filling
1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese
1/4 c sugar
2 T milk
1 8 oz Cool Whip
2 small pkg. instant pudding--chocolate or chocolate fudge
3 1/2 c cold milk

Combine cracker crumbs, 1/4 c sugar and butter. Press into greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350. Cool.

Beat cream cheese with 1/4 c sugar and 2 T milk until smooth. Fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip. Spread over cooled crust. Spread the cherry pie filling over this.

Prepare pudding using 3 1/2 c milk(beat for 2 minutes) Spoon the pudding over the cherry pie filling. Chill for several hours. Top with the rest of the Cool Whip and grated chocolate and nuts if desired.
