Chocolate Cream Pie

Sep 28, 2012

A kid favorite Chocolate Cream Pie!  Try my Aunt Kathy's Chocolate Cream Pie that she used to make for family gatherings when I was a little girl.  Good for upcoming holiday gatherings and parties but also great as a last minute dessert to put together for unexpected dinner guests!

2 c. milk
1 pkg. instant French Vanilla pudding
1 pkg. instant Chocolate Pudding
2 c. vanilla ice cream
Mix all ingredients together until well blended and smooth.  Pour into graham cracker pie crust. Refrigerate at least one hour, and serve topped with whipped topping and shaved Chocolate.  Serves 8.  Click here to find a printer friendly version of this recipe.
