This cake was out of this world good! Give me chocolate and whipped cream any day and I'll be happy. I would have made it without the nuts though. Something to try next time!

I liked the combination of crust, fudgy filling, and walnuts.

A buttery pie crust, whipped topping, and chocolate pudding are a FANTASTIC combination! I loved the contrast in textures between the crust and the rest of the cake...though I'm not sure I would categorize this as a cake. Definitely yummy, though!

A small portion of this "cake" was all I needed. I couldn't eat more than a few bites because it was really rich.

Love how creamy this cake is! The buttery crust was a surprising addition, but it was just the right texture to offset the rest of the ingredients. Together, this is a very indulgent dessert!

Loved the crust! Very creamy, though. If you're the kind of person who could eat a spoonful of just Cool Whip, this dessert will speak to you.

The name of the recipe says it all... Yum, Yum! Anything with cool whip and chocolate is ok by me! It's so good that I have to keep myself from eating it all.

Very good! Just the right amount of chocolate.

This dessert is very aptly named. Yum yum indeed!

OMG. This fluffy miracle is the perfect dessert for family gatherings, pot lucks, holidays... breakfast... seriously, I would eat this any time. I may leave out the nuts next time, but they're the perfect amount, if you like them.

This was super creamy. I could eat the filling all day long!
