Does this count as a recipe if it all came from a box? I’m going to.
Over the weekend, while out shopping, I stumbled upon this little box. (Literally, it was in the middle of the aisle. Not alone, but you get it.) It looked really good, so I bought it. I thought that it was going to be easy, and I guess it is vs. making it from scratch, but for someone who has never made a pie before, it was a little tricky. (Mostly getting the whip right.)
This box came with everything you need except for butter and water.
The first thing you’re told to do is melt the 5 tablespoons and mix in the crust mix. But to save a tablespoon to sprinkle on top after you are done.
The next step is to make the chocolate filling. Add 1 cup of the evaporated milk, 1 cup water, and the filling mix.
The third step is to make the cream topping, which I found to be the hardest. (I didn’t want to use the electric mixer.) This mix is the rest of the evaporated milk, 1/3 cup water, and the provided mix.
Layer it all up, add the crumbles, and there you have it. Chocolate Cream Pie. Btw, I had to use a cake pan because I didn't know that we had a pie holder. Then I found out we did after I was half way through. (Oops.)
