3/4 cup fresh rasberries

Stand 16 wafers around inside edge of 9-inch round pan lined with plastic wrap.  Melt 3 chocolate squares.

Beat pudding mixes and 2 cups of milk in medium bowl with whisk for 2 minutes.  Add melted chocolate; mix well. Stir in  1 cup Cool Whip; pour into prepared pan.

Beat cream cheese, sugar and remaining milk with mixer until well-blended.  Stir in 1 cup of remaining Cool Whip; spread over pudding.  Top with remaining wafers.  Refriderate for 3 hours.  Meanwhile, shave remaining chocolate squares into curls.

Invert torte onto plate.  Remove pan and plastic wrap.  Top torte with remaining Cool Whip, chocolate shavings, and rasberries.  Serves 16.
