Let's Make It
1
Spoon 1/2 the COOL WHIP into bowl; refrigerate to thaw. Return remaining COOL WHIP to freezer. Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round layers, adding dry pudding mix to dry cake mix before mixing with liquid ingredients. Cool cakes in pans 10 min.; invert onto wire racks. Remove pans. Cool cakes completely.
2
Meanwhile, microwave caramels and water in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min. or until caramels are completely melted and sauce is well blended, stirring every 45 sec. Cool slightly.
3
Beat Neufchatel in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add caramel sauce; mix well. Blend in thawed COOL WHIP. Stack cake layers on plate, filling and frosting top with Neufchatel mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
4
Microwave frozen COOL WHIP and 3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate in microwaveable bowl 3 min. or until blended, stirring after each minute. Cool 10 min. Meanwhile, melt remaining semi-sweet chocolate as directed on package. Dip 1/2 of each wafer into chocolate; place on wax paper-covered baking sheet. Top with nuts. Refrigerate until ready to use.
5
Spread COOL WHIP mixture onto top of cake. Garnish with wafers.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Small Changes Add Up
Small ingredient substitutions, such as COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping, JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, and reduced-fat vanilla wafers, result in a savings of 40 calories and 3g of total fat, including 2g of saturated fat, per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.
Tip 2
Variation
Substitute 13x9-inch pan for the round pans and increase baking time to 35 to 38 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; cool completely. Continue as directed, spreading caramel mixture and chocolate mixture over cake in pan.
Tip 3
Make Ahead
For a more fudge-like texture, store cake in refrigerator overnight before serving. Garnish with chocolate-dipped wafers just before serving.
