My mom makes this but we call it Joe's surprise b/c when my brother was little, our cousin Joe told him to smell this dessert. When Philip put his nose down Joe "surprised" him by pushing his face into it! There was cool-whip everywhere!

That's one of our favorites, too! We usually sprinkle pecans on top, or sometimes crushed candy bars. Yum!
