Jimmy Carter Cake

Several years back, one of my aunts experiemented with a dessert, added stuff, took stuff out, etc, and came up with the following awesome dessert. She gave it the dubious name of Jimmy Carter Cake. My mom submitted it to a recipe book under some other name that had pudding in the name, but not Jimmy Carter. Anyway, I had to type it up to email to a co-worker, so decided I'd share it here. And fat free/sugar free ingredients can be used.

Ingredients (fat free and sugar free things can be used)

First layer:
1 3/4 cups of flour

1 1/2 sticks of oleo

3/4 cup of crushed/chopped peanuts

Second layer:
1 cup of powdered sugar

1 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened

1 small container of Cool Whip

2/3 cup of peanut butter

Third layer:
1 package of instant chocolate pudding

1 package of vanilla instant pudding

3 cups of milk

Fourth layer:

1 small Cool Whip

1 Hershey Bar, or other chocolate


First layer:
Mix together and spread in a 9 by 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes. Cool completely.

Second layer:
Mix sugar, cream cheese, and Cool Whip, and peanut butter. Spread on the crust.

Third layer:
Beat the 2 puddings together with the 3 cups of milk. Spread on top of the last layer.

Fourth layer:
Spread one small Cool Whip on top and sprinkle with grated chocolate.

Refrigerate 2-3 hours.
