Black and White Cream Pie

This Black and White Cream Pie is a fun, super simple pie that has a big impact! If you use a purchased pie crust it literally comes together in minutes and the colored layers really look fancy. An added bonus, the top can be decorated with anything, ideas: whipped cream, toasted coconut, strawberries or crushed candy canes depending on what time of the year it is. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you make this pie folks!
Lovin' those layers:@)

Black and White Cream Pie-from Mr.Food.com
9" pie crust, cooked and cooled-I used a purchased Keebler Shortbread crust
A four serving size package of cook and serve vanilla pudding
2 C milk
1/2 C chocolate chips-I used semi-sweet Ghirardelli
1/2 C white chocolate chips-I used Ghirardelli
  1. In medium sauce pan add milk and pudding mix, stir constantly over medium heat until boiling. Remove from heat. 
  2. Pour half of the pudding into a bowl, add the chocolate chips and stir until melted and combined. Pour into pie crust.
  3. Add white chocolate chips to the rest of the pudding and stir until melted and combined. Carefully pour over top of the chocolate pudding. *I poured the white chips onto the pudding at the same time I added the chocolate chips, this gave them time to start melting. If you only have one whisk, save it for the white chips, I find that they don't melt as easily as the chocolate ones.
  4. Cover so plastic wrap touches the top of the pudding and chill for at least 4 hours.
  5. Serve with whipped cream and shaved chocolate if desired.
Have a sticky sweet happy day:@)

  3. Yes please, I'd love a slice of this for my dessert at lunch today. It's such an easy pie to make and the idea of adding the chocolate chips would give an extra chocolate-y impact.

  7. My grandkids are picky about desserts and I know they would love this yummy pie....so would their grandma. I might even add a little squirt of whipped cream on top.

  8. Ooooo, yum! You come up with the tastiest sounding treats, Lynn! I'm guessing you used vanilla pudding to start, but I don't see why one couldn't do a "cheesecake" flavored one or perhaps "coconut"...the possibilities are endless! Thanks a billion!!
