Cream Puff Dessert

This is delicious and easy and everyone loves it. You can make it ahead and freeze it, but let it partially thaw before serving. It’s best when it’s ‘crispy’ frozen.

  3. Bake in preheated oven 30 to 35 minutes, until puffy and golden. Let cool completely on wire rack.
  4. While puff is cooling, beat together cream cheese, milk and pudding mix. Spread over cooled puff. Chill 20 minutes.
  5. Spread whipped topping over chilled filling and drizzle with chocolate and caramel sauces. Sprinkle with almonds. Freeze 1 hour before serving.
