When I was 21 I cooked my first full-blown Thanksgiving dinner. all. by. myself.
I've never had a fear of cooking, it has always been relatively easy-follow the directions, measure the ingredients correctly, and cook at the proper temperature.
Cooking is easy. Baking, no so much.
Even when I follow the directions step-by-step I still manage to ruin cupcakes from the box and Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies from the sleeve.
So even though I managed to cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner by myself, for the sake of all of those eating my food I steered away from making a pumpkin and apple pie.
But every Thanksgiving dinner has to have pie, right?
So over the next few days I will be showcasing my favorite no-bake pie recipes.
Chocolate Pudding Pie
1-5 oz. package chocolate pudding
2 cups cold milk
1-large graham cracker crust
1-8 oz tub of whipped topping
1/4 cup Wilton's melting chocolates
Mix cold milk and pudding.
Once whipped, mix half the tub of whipped topping into the pudding/milk mixture.
Pour filling into graham cracker crust.
Top with remaining whipped topping.
Melt chocolates in microwave. Poor melted chocolates onto the backside of a cookie sheet, allow chocolates to harden.
Once the chocolate has hardened use a metal spatula to scrape the chocolate off the cookie sheet.
The chocolate with begin to "curl."
Once you have a handful of curled chocolates place them on top of the pie.
Freeze for 5-6 hours. Allow to unthaw for 15 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
Sorry I don't have my own picture....I always make my pies the morning of Thanksgiving and I thought you would want the recipes before the big day--pictures of my lovelies will follow after the event.
