Christmas is just around the corner so, we need some goodies to tide us over until the New Year. Chocolate is always a favorite for the kids. Four layers of chocolate would be better.

1 stick melted margarine
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
4 1/2 oz. Cool Whip
1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding
1 pkg. chocolate instant pudding

Combine margarine, flour and pecans. Bake in a 9”x13” pan for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and one 4 1/2 ounce Cool Whip. Spread over crust. Mix pudding according to directions and spread over Cool Whip. Chill before adding last carton of Cool Whip and chill again.

Hawaiian Pineapple Bars

1 (14 oz.) date bar mix
1/4 cup hot water
1 egg
1 (8 1/4 oz. can) crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine date bar mix with hot water and egg. Add pineapple and chopped pecans. Mix thoroughly. Spread in lightly greased 9”x13” pan. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Both of these are new to me but sounds Gooder’n Syrup. Von
