  • Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
  • In a medium pan, melt butter with water.

  • Add in eggs.
  • Stir mixture until completely combined.
  • This may take a minute or two to get it completely combined.
  • Spread crust into 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Bake crust for 30 minutes.
  • Allow crust to cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, mix cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add in pudding,milk and vanilla extract.
  • Mix until thoroughly combined and mixture begins to thicken (this may take a couple of minutes). If it is a little lumpy, that’s okay.
  • Pour filling mixture on top of cooled crust and evenly spread.
  • Spread whipped topping on top of filling and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
  • Cover and refrigerate.
