Super Bowl Snacks…

Hubs and I don’t do Super Bowl…in fact we don’t do sports at all with the exception of the occasional Wii! He would rather go out into the garage and be a manly man and work on restoring an old truck, putting a huge lift kit on our slightly newer truck or heck…even put an engine/transmission in daughter #2 Chevy Nova…can we say vrooom vrooom!


We do like snacks..

So here is a quick link to some fantastic looking Super Bowl snacks….and you can bet I’m going to be printing them off and giving them a try…sans the Super Bowl!

Triple Layer Mud Pie…

In October I came across a new Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe and it has been a hit ever since (meaning everyone dives into this one before any other pie!).

For Christmas we (hubs and & I) wanted something new….

So I browsed the Kraft Foods website and found a recipe for Triple Layer Mud Pie. It is the best, richest, most chocolate-y-est pudding pie I have ever made!

And at Christmas IT was the first pie to be demolished eaten…so I guess our family has a new favorite pie…

Best thing is this pie is simple to make and is great not only at holidays but during the hot summer as well!

Triple Layer Mud Pie

3 Squares Bakers Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

1/4 cup Canned Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 Oreo Pie Crust (6 oz.)

1/2 cup Chopped Pecans, toasted if desired

2 cups Milk

2 pkgs. Instant Chocolate Pudding (3.9 oz each)

1 Tub (8 oz) Cool Whip, Thawed

Mix melted chocolate and condensed milk. Pour into crust. Sprinkle with nuts.

Beat milk and pudding mixes with whisk 2 min. Spoon 1 1/2 cups over nuts. Stir 1/2 of the cool whip into remaining pudding. Spread over layer in crust.

Top with remaining cool whip.

Refrigerate 3 hours.
