This recipe looks really good and a bit similar to others I have tried. I would rather use butter and real whipping cream instead of margarine and cool whip - I am guessing I can do so as long as I put stabilizer in the whipping cream? This makes a great dessert to bring to a party or potluck, it's always a big hit!

Do you mix the chocolate and vanilla pudding mixes together with the milk or do you mix them separately and layer separately???

What's icing sugar??

Icing sugar is 10X confectionary sugar

Icing sugar and confectioner's sugar are the same thing.

Photos please! We eat with our eyes first.

totally agree - I would lilke to see the items first
