While I was typing this post I had the television on and this ad came on.
Pop-Tarts are sort of a cousin to Toaster Strudel, so I smiled.
The lizard in the ad also made me smile. However, there is no getting around it…. This is a pretty dark commercial.
The only dark thing about this super simple dessert is the chocolate.
Toast up some frozen strudel and layer them in a pan with a creamy chocolate pudding mixture. Eat. Sweet.
4 frozen strawberry-filled strudel pastries (such as Pillsbury Toaster Strudel)
2 cups cold milk
1 package (5.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
8 ounces frozen whipped topping, such as Cool Whip, thawed, divided
1. Toast pastries according to package directions; cool for 5 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set; fold in 2 cups whipped topping.
3. Place pastries in an ungreased 8-inch square dish. Spread with pudding.
4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Cut into squares. Top with remaining whipped topping, if you like.

Time for a short (and utterly fabulous) song.
The Girl Who Waves At Trains is a pretty sweet song, and I have always had a sweet spot for Stephen Duffy.
