4 Layer Delight

My husband actually got this recipe while he was on his mission in Canada. The title on the recipe card is Sex in a Pan. Then it has this side note- Please rename the title of this dessert when feeding it to the missionaries! Or any other time it may be inappropriate. My husband said that when it was fed to him on his mission, they called it "dessert in a pan". But, he knew that wasn't the real name and made them tell him what it was. He said he then pretended to be shocked and offended when they told him what it was called and that they would feed it to the Elders! My mom used to make this when I was younger and we always called it "4 Layer Delight". So, since I am actually feeding this to the Elders tonight, we will call it 4 Layer Delight!

Too funny. I remember getting "something" in a pan in Canada, too, in the singles ward, and the sisters could barely keep themselves from busing a gut while us silly Elders looked on, enjoying the "best cake ever" or whatever they called it.
