Far be it for me to interfere with the entire control top pantyhose section of the garment industry, so in the hopes of keeping that garment industry afloat, today I am going to share with you one of Shannon's (and my) favorite chocolate desserts.
Here is everything that you will need to make this deliciously easy dessert.
(I use Stable Milk that we get in our Angel Food Menu; it works so well for cooking, and that way we don't use up all of the boys regular drinking milk. But obviously, you can use regular milk. Click here if you would like to find out more about Angel Food Ministries. I know I say that all the time, but it really is a wonderful program.)
The recipe that I follow is found on the side of the Jello Pudding box.
We like a FULLER pie, so we use two boxes of pudding to make one pie.
(Remember, my bloggy buddies, that all of the people who work in the control top pantyhose section of the garment industry are counting on us to eat plenty of chocolate, so go ahead, and use two boxes of chocolate pudding to make your pie too.)
So, with that lecture, the first step in making this chocolaty lover's goodness is to dump TWO boxes of Jello chocolate pudding mix into a large mixing bowl.
Then I pour 2 3/4 cups of milk into the mixing bowl.
Now it is time to mix both of those ingredients together with a wire whisk for about two minutes.
When it looks like this, I know that I am ready to move on to the next step.
I pour it into the graham cracker crust. Like so.
Once all of the pudding is in the pie crust, I just smooth the pudding out evenly (or as evenly as I can get pudding).
It should look something like this.
And place it in the refrigerator for about 3 hours (or until it is firmly set).
After the pie is safely in the refrigerator, it is time to
I usually like to
After the pie is firmly set, I cut it into eight slices. Then I put a slice on a plate, and just for fun (and for the entire control top pantyhose section of the garment industry), I also like to add a little dollop of whipped topping to my slice of pie.
And remember, when you eat this pie, you are not only enjoying chocolaty goodness, you are keeping the entire control top pantyhose section of the garment industry afloat.
So, you should feel really good about yourself while eating this pie. So good, in fact, that you should probably go ahead and have two slices.
I'm just saying.
