Well, as luck would have it, there was NO traffic whatsoever this morning and I pulled off the off ramp for my office forty-five minutes early. Yes, you read that right, forty five minutes. I HAD TIME TO MAKE PIE!
I'm about to share with you one of my biggest secrets. My chocolate cream pie that everyone loves so much, is so easy to make. You could even make it last minute in your office kitchen if you have to.
Here's what you need:
1. Ready made cookie crust.
2. Jello INSTANT pudding. Make 100% sure you get instant pudding or this pie ceases to be last minute.
3. Milk (You can use whatever milk you want, I used almond milk because I try not to use dairy.)
4. Whipped topping [They didn't have dairy free at Ralphs :( ]
5. Mini Chocolate Chips or chocolate shavings.
What to do:
In a big bowl, mix together the Pudding mix and milk according to the package directions. Then pour the pudding into the cookie crust. Next, spread the whipped topping over the pie. It works better if you let the topping thaw a little. (Otherwise its reaaally hard to spread and you get little pudding streaks in it like I did this morning because I was impatient). Lastly, sprinkle some of your mini chocolate chips on top and VIOLA! You have a last minute chocolate cream pie!
Happy Pie Day!
