Better Than Robert Redford Dessert
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, plus more for top of cake
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar (not granulated, as is mistakenly shown in the picture)
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 cups milk
2 boxes (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding
2 boxes (3.4 ounces each) instant chocolate pudding
Chocolate, milk or dark to make chocolate shavings

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a medium-size bowl, mix flour, walnuts and butter.  Pat into prepared dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Cool completely.

In a bowl, beat cream cheese and  confectioner's sugar until smooth.  Fold in half of the whipped topping.  Spread over cooled crust.

Prepare vanilla pudding using 2 cups of the milk.  Spread over cream cheese layer.  Prepare chocolate pudding with remaining 2 cups milk.  Spread over the vanilla pudding layer.  Spread remaining whipped topping over pudding.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.  Sprinkle with nuts and chocolate shavings.  Cut into squares.
