This Sex in a Pan has a crazy name for candy, but it’s one of the best desserts you’ll ever have, it’s mostly a candy pudding with a crunchy pecan bottom crust.

Over 5 years ago I shared this wonderful dessert with you and fell in love with it! It’s one of the most popular recipes I have on Jo Cooks and there is a reason for that. It’s unbelievable, it’s decadent and mesmerizing.

I thought it was the perfect time to share this with you again with some updated photos. With Valentine’s Day just two days away, I think this dessert will be in place for the day marked with a name like sex in the pan.

The name itself is funny for dessert, and hundreds of you have hung out here to tell me all the other names this pudding has. I think it is called sex in the pan because it is six layers and six layers in the pan the sex is done in the pan.

A long time ago, before I got married, my friend came over for the weekend and made this dessert for me. I had no idea what it was up to, but she promised me I’d love it, so we did it.

We didn’t come up with the name, that’s the name she knew her and her mother used to make it for her as long as she remembered it. I think this dessert has actually been around for decades but is still popular, not because of its name but because it really is incredible.

On the first day we made this dessert, I fell in love with it.
