I actually ate more the day AFTER Thanksgiving than on the day itself. I feel like I let my guard down, thought I had Thanksgiving topped. I got cocky.
We are lucky enough to to have great friends and neighbors and the day after Thanksgiving we have “Friendsgiving”. Well, I was weak. I made and ate THIS and THIS and my friend made THESE and I all but licked the bowl clean.
I woke up Saturday morning telling myself I would only drink water until Christmas. It took me ’til about…say…9:30 am until I was back on food. I told you I was weak.
You wanna know what happened? Pie. Actually pudding pie.
I am not a pudding person. I have never been a pie person. Soooo, when I decided to make this I knew I wouldn’t be tempted.
I am wrong a lot.
Here’s the thing about this pie…it’s the pudding.
When I said I am not a pudding person that is true. I don’t like making it, I don’t like the texture, I don’t like the taste.
WELLLLLL, I had never made homemade pudding.
Life changer, people. Life. Changer.
Here’s what you need to know about this Candy Pie:
- Oreo crust? Check.
- Homemade chocolate pudding? Check.
- Milky Way? Check.
- Reese’s Cups? Check.
- Marshmallows? Check
- Brownies? Check.
- Whipped cream? Check.
- M&M’s? Check.
Do I have your attention? All of those ingredients rock my world…but it’s the pudding people…make it.
First make your Oreo crust, or use a store bought if you want…but they’re really easy. Just mash up some Oreos and mix with melted butter and press into a pie pan and bake.
Now, also, if you are feeling all “make-from-scratchy” go ahead and bake up some brownies. Whatever kind you like. If not, use store bought brownies. It really won’t make too much of a difference.
Next, make your pudding. Again, if you are really not into it, you can certainly use a boxed pudding mix, but I urge you to make the pudding.
While your pudding is cooling chop up you Milky Way and brownies. Spread them on top of your Oreo crust.
Then mix your Reese’s and marshmallows into your cooled pudding.
Contest runs through Sunday, December 4th at 11:59 pm and is open to US and Canada residents only.
