Midnight Interlude aka Chocolate Yummy

In Cajun Country, everyone apparently knows what Chocolate Yummy is. The yummy begins with a base of store-bought crumbled cookies, followed by layers of sweetened cream cheese, chocolate pudding, and Cool Whip. In Real Cajun: Rustic Home Cooking from Donald Link's Louisiana, Donald Link offers a grown-up version that's a bit more sophisticated. He uses a rich pecan shortbread base, topped with slightly sweetened cream cheese, a silky dark chocolate pudding, fresh whipped cream, and chocolate shavings.  I took it up a notch with a splash of Kentucky bourbon!  Recipe at There's a Newf in My Soup!
