   12      oz            chocolate chips -- divided
    1      tablespoon    shortening
    1      cup           flour
    2      tablespoons   sugar
      1/2  cup           butter or margarine
      1/2  cup           flaked coconut
      1/2  cup           chopped walnuts
    8      oz            cream cheese -- softened
    1      cup           confectioner’s sugar
    8      oz            Cool Whip -- thawed
   21      oz            can cherry pie filling
    2      pkgs          instant vanilla pudding
    2 1/2  cups          milk
 
 In small saucepan over low heat, heat 1/2 c chocolate chips with shortening
 until melted and smooth, stirring frequently.  Pour chocolate mixture into
 foil-lined 10 oz custard cup to make chocolate curls later.  Cover and
 refrigerate.
 
 Preheat oven to 350F.  In medium bowl, mix flour and sugar.  Cut in butter
 or margarine until mixture is crumbly.  Stir in coconut and walnuts.  Press
 crumb mixture evenly into bottom of 9x13-inch pan.  Bake 12-15 minutes
 until crust is light golden brown.  Cool.  In large bowl, beat cream cheese
 and confectioners sugar until smooth; fold in 1 c Cool Whip.  Spread cream
 cheese mixture over cooled crust, top with cherry pie filling.  Cover and
 refrigerate.  Melt remaining chocolate chips in small saucepan over low
 heat, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth.  Set aside to cool.  In
 large bowl, with wire whisk, beat both packages of pudding with milk until
 thickened.  Beat in melted chocolate.  Carefully spread pudding mixture
 over cherry filling, chill at least 2 hours.  Spread remaining Cool Whip
 over pudding.  Peel off foil from molded chocolate in custard cup.  Using a
 vegetable peeler, shave chocolate to form curls.  Sprinkle over top of
 dessert.
