Luscious Multi-Layer Mud Pie

Luscious but Skinny Multi-Layer Mud Pie

 

Here is a recipe that I just thought of while putting things away in my new Skinny Sweets Daily pantry. We recently moved to a new house and there has been a lot of construction going on while we are living here. It can be very messy and a bit stressful. I had to put my dessert making on hold for a while. I was able to put together quick dinners for my family but it wasn’t easy to create my dessert recipes. I was getting so antsy that I asked the contractor to please finish the kitchen ASAP so I can start cooking with a full kitchen as well as getting my Skinny Sweets Daily recipes on their way to you. He was so accommodating and finished in record time and I must say, I am so happy with the way my new kitchen came out along with the rest of the house.

I wanted to make something special for the great team that was here and at the same time get their honest opinion of this recipe. So I guess this recipe is dedicated to our great contractor John and his co- workers, Michael, Danny and Marco. Oh and by the way, they loved the pie. Since they finished the whole thing, I had to make another one for my family and they loved it just as much. I hope you give this one a try. It really is luscious and decadent with a little bit of messy thrown in. LOL!

Ingredients:

  • 1 prepared Keebler reduced fat graham cracker crust
  • 1/3 cup fat free sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cups 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 skim milk
  • 2 packages sugar free instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 8 ounce Cool whip free
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A couple of pecans for decoration, optional
  • Shaved chocolate for decoration, optional

 

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, place the sweetened condensed milk along with the 2 tbsp 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 the skim milk along with the two boxes of pudding mix. Beat with a wire whisk until thick. 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.
