3 Eggland’s Best eggs *
1 large tub of frozen whipped topping

Fold in the whipped topping.
1/2 cup of Hershey chocolate syrup
Drop syrup over the filling and swirl through with a knife.

It is ready when you are…..enjoy.
* if you prefer not to use raw eggs, you can replace it with a small package of vanilla pudding mixed with 1 cup milk to keep the consistency. I have never done it this way, but my friend does and she says she doesn’t notice much of a difference, or omit the raw eggs altogether.
