I once had a recipe for a dessert called 5 layer. I do remember the 1st layer was a dough with walnuts, baked then I had 4 more layers to do. Seems like I had chocolate pudding, coolwhip, then can't remember the rest. Hope someone has this. It is my sons favorite dessert and some how I have misplaced it. He just bought his 1st home so I wanted to make him one for his special occasion. Thanks in advance for your insight.
try the taste of home website. seems I remember a desert like that being posted in the past. sorry I can't remember the name of it but I'm sure if you look up deserts or refrigerated deserts you will find it

we call it Texas sheet cake in Kentucky
in illinois a texas sheet cake is a type of chocolate cake
with chocolate icing
I use the same recipe as Amber posted. In SC we call it "Chocolate Delight." It's one of my favorites too!
Just wanted to thank everyone for helping me out with this.Your time and effort are greatly appreciated.
I read a recipe earlier on this site titled: "Sex in a Pan"
and I also have seen it titled "Better than Sex" desert.
Both of these are like the "5 Layer cake recipe". I have eaten it and it is SINFULLY good. I love it. Hope this was the one you were looking for.
