Simple Chocolate Cream Pie
Since we're moving, I didn't really want to go all-out for a pie for our big family dinner. Besides, I knew my sisters were also providing pies, so I decided to go simple.
18 graham cracker squares (9 full sheets)
1/4 cup sugar
6 tbsp. melted margarine
1 large box chocolate pudding mix (instant)
2 1/2 cups milk
1 8-oz. tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
To make crust, crush crackers into fine crumbs. Add sugar and butter, stir until combined. Press into 9-inch pie plate, onto bottom and sides. Bake at 375 for 6-9 minutes or till edges are brown. Cool completely before filling.
Mix pudding mix and milk according to package directions. Pour half of the pudding into the pie crust. Fold half of the cool whip into the other half of the pudding. Chill until partially set (both pie and pudding/cool whip mixture). Spoon pudding/cool whip mixture on top of pudding layer. Chill until set. Top with remaining cool whip, and chill until serving.
