I got this recipe from my sister-in-law Velma Saunders. It is one of my most requested recipes from friends and family. Wherever there is a get-together, this is what they want me to bring. It can also be made with whatever flavor of pudding mix you desire, although we're all "choco-holics"! lol... Lots of times, I also use sugar-free whenever I can and that also works out great.... enjoy!

Method:

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

2
ready-made graham cracker pie shells
2 pkg
cream cheese, softened
3/4 c
powdered sugar, stevia or splenda
2 box
chocolate fudge instant pudding, i use sugar-free variety
3 c
2% milk
16 oz
ready-made whipped topping
chocolate shavings or chocolate sprinkles

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream cheese should be set out until it's softened or you can do this by 30 second intervals in the microwave when you're ready to make the pie.
2
Start by beating the cream cheese until it's smooth, then add the powdered sugar, a little at a time, and beat until it's well mixed and smooth. Add 1/2 of the whipped topping and mix until all is completely combined. ***NOTE:Do not over-mix as this will deflate the whipped topping. Divide this mixture between the 2 graham cracker pie shells, smoothing it evenly.
3
In a bowl, mix the 2 boxes of pudding mix with the 3 cups of milk. When completely mixed, according to package directions, evenly divide into the 2 pie shells over the cream cheese mixture. This is the second layer of the pies.
4
The last layer is the rest of the whipped topping evenly divided between the 2 pies. Spread evenly and you can make pretty swirls on top or however you like it. Lastly, sprinkle on the chocolate sprinkles, but I prefer to make chocolate swirls with a veggie peeler and a chocolate bar, IF I HAPPEN TO HAVE A CHOCOLATE BAR ON HAND. I usually don't have though, so I keep chocolate sprinkles in the cupboard for this use.
5
Each pie makes 6 to 8 servings, depending on how large you cut the pieces. Refrigerate the pies to set, at least 3 to 4 hours before serving. *** NOTE: Any leftover pie MUST be refrigerated. ♥ Enjoy!♥
