One of my husband's favorite desserts is spumoni ice cream. He's always excited to see it on the menu at Italian restaurants. We decided to make a variation and turn it into a pudding pie.
chocolate graham cracker crust
half of a small tub of Cool Whip
box of instant pistachio pudding
box of instant chocolate pudding
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1 t. cherry Jello dry powder
1/3 c. chopped maraschino cherries
1/2 t. almond extract
3 c. milk
1. Mix 1 1/2 c. milk with the box of pistachio pudding. Spread it into the crust as your bottom layer. Place in the refrigerator while you work on the next layer.
2. Mix the cream cheese, cherry Jello, almond extract, maraschino cherries, and Cool Whip together. Spread into the crust as your middle layer. Return to refrigerator.
3. Mix the chocolate pudding mix and remaining 1 1/2 c. milk together. Spread on top as the final layer. Optional: chop up some chocolate chips or pistachios to garnish the top. Allow to chill for at least one hour.
Yum! Let me know if you try it out!
