Ingredients

  • 1 prepared graham cracker crust
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk, I used fat free this time
  • 4 tbsp semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup or more if you like it very nutty, chopped pecans toasted, (To do this, place in a 300 degree oven for about 5-10 minutes until very lightly browned. Do not over brown. Take out and let cool until ready to use.)
  • 1 3/4 cups milk, I used 2 percent, lower fat or whole work also
  • 2 small boxes instant chocolate pudding mix, I used sugar free this time, regular works also
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip or any frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • whole pecans for decoration
  • shaved chocolate for decoration, optional

Instructions

  1. 1.In a small to medium saucepan, place the sweetened condensed milk along with the chocolate chips over low heat. Stir just until the chocolate melts into the milk. Take off the heat. Let cool a few minutes then pour into prepared crust.

    2.Sprinkle the nuts over the mixture and place in fridge for about 10 to 15 minutes.

    3.In the meantime, In a large mixing bowl add milk along with the two boxes of pudding mix. Beat with a sturdy wire whisk until thick or use a hand held mixer This takes about 1-2 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and mix gently.

    4.Spoon about a cup of the pudding over the pecans. Spread evenly. Set back in fridge until your next layer is ready.

    5.Stir half of the Cool Whip into the remaining pudding. Mix gently. Now take out the pie again and place this layer over the last. Spread evenly.

    6.Take the remaining Cool whip and spread over the top of the pie and you can now make a pretty design or just smooth nicely.

    7.Place in fridge for at least 3 hours and then garnish as desired. Enjoy!
