Chocolate Pudding Pie
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 ready pie crust (or you can make one)
  • 3.4 oz instant vanilla pudding
  • 3.9 oz instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim, but it would probably be better with 2%)
  • ~1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • ~1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 pt. vanilla ice cream, softened (I used Edy's slow churned light, but frozen custard would be AWESOME in this!)
  • whipped topping (I used the fat free kind)
  • semi-sweet chocolate for curls :)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Prep the pie crust according to directions.
  2. Mix the pudding mixes and milk.
  3. Fold in the spices and ice cream.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the crust and freeze ~4 hours.
  5. Decorate with the whipped topping and chocolate curls. :)
RECIPE BACKSTORY
As I've said before, I am not a pie person, but my sister and I were playing in my kitchen one afternoon when her son wanted something chocolate. I generally keep chocolate desserts on hand, but I didn't really have anything for him. I could have just made him pudding, but I kinda wanted something more for after dinner. My sister had a lot of input in this so I didn't screw it up, and I think it turned out really well!!! Update 11/12 evening: I just made this again tonight for my in-laws and did a vanilla wafer bottom crust instead of the ready-made and added Kahlua to the pudding mix and it was GREAT!
