Ingredients

  • 2 3.4 ounce boxes cook and serve chocolate pudding mixes (not instant!)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 pie crust, baked
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup confectioner's sugar

Instructions

  1. Combine pudding mixes and milk in a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat until thickened. 

  2. Remove from heat and transfer to a different container and chill in the refrigerator (cover the bowl with plastic wrap and push the plastic wrap down so that it's touching the entire top of the pudding- this will prevent it from getting "skin").

  3. On the day you're planning to serve this, place the pudding into the pie crust and smooth the top. Refrigerate.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream, vanilla extract and confectioner's sugar until it makes stiff peaks. 

  5. Spread the whipped cream on top of the pie and if you're feeling extra fancy, shave some chocolate on top. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.
