Ingredients

FOR THE CAKE:
1 box vanilla, white or yellow cake mix
1 (3.4 oz.) box instant pistachio pudding
3 eggs
1 cup oil
1 cup milk
green food coloring (optional)
FOR THE FROSTING:
1 (3.4 oz.) box instant pistachio pudding
1/2 cup milk
1 (8oz.) tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
green food coloring (optional)


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray.


In a medium bowl, combine dry cake mix with dry instant pistachio pudding.


Mix those together until combined. Then add in eggs, oil and milk.


Stir just until combined.


Stir in about 6 to 8 drops of green food coloring until fully incorporated.


Pour into prepared baking dish. Bake for about 25-30 minutes.


If you insert a toothpick into it, it should come out clean when done.


Allow cake to cool completely before making frosting.


To make frosting, put instant pistachio pudding mix into a mixing bowl.


Add in 1/2 cup cold milk. Stir until combined.


Now stir in your thawed whipped topping.


Once again, I put in a few drops of green food coloring to really bring out that green color.


About 5 drops or so. Spread frosting onto cooled cake.


Slice and serve. If you like, sprinkle with some crushed pistachios.
