  • 1 Box (3.4 oz) Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Instant Pudding Mix
  • 2 cups Cold Milk
  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1/4 teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Andes Peppermint Chips
  • 1 Box (14 oz) Chocolate Graham Crackers
  • Extra 8 ounces Cool Whip, thawed (for topping)
  • Hot Fudge Sauce (for drizzling)
  • Extra Andes Peppermint Chips (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Pudding: Mix pudding and milk, whisk until well combined. Refrigerate for 10 minutes until firm.
  2. Cream Cheese Layer: Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream, and peppermint extract. Beat until smooth.
  3. Combine: Fold in Cool Whip and peppermint chips until mixed.
  4. Layering: In a 9×13 inch pan, lay down chocolate graham crackers. Spread half the cream cheese mixture, then half the pudding. Repeat with another layer of graham crackers, cream cheese, and pudding.
  5. Top Off: Finish with Cool Whip, sprinkle peppermint chips, and drizzle with hot fudge sauce.
  6. Chill: Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.


  • Peppermint Power: Start with less peppermint extract and add to taste; it’s quite strong.
  • Graham Cracker Tip: Use large pieces for better structure. Rotate the orientation in the second layer for added stability.
  • Variety: Swap chocolate graham crackers with Oreos for a different twist. Add various toppings like marshmallows or caramel for extra flair.

Q: How do I store leftovers?
A: Keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Q: Can I use regular milk chocolate pudding instead of dark chocolate?
A: Absolutely! The recipe is quite flexible, so feel free to use your favorite type of chocolate pudding.
