Tonight we had Orlund’s parents over for coffee. I thought it would be fun to make a special dessert. Well it didn’t turn out how I’d hoped. Here’s the story~
I wanted to make a chocolate pie thingy (supposed to be real easy, the recipe was on the pie crust). So first I took the plastic off of the pie crust, being in the hurry I was (for no reason) I accidentally dumped the plastic lid onto the pie crust. I don’t know if there were crumbs or not, however in my momentary lack of judgment, I decided to dump the crust upside down to ‘shake’ off any crumbs………… I caught all the pieces….. oops. So now my crust isn’t so pretty as I can’t really piece it back together. Then I follow the directions, stir in 1 +1/4 cups of Milk, 2 packs of instant chocolate pudding. Whisk for 1 minute (should be thick), then add half of ‘cool whip’….. So As I’m whisking I realize that my cool whip container is measured in a different measurement than the recipe calls for, I call Orlund in to help…. We decide it should just be a couple scoops. At this time I also realize that the recipe calls for the pudding to be the kind that makes 4 servings, the ones I have make 6 servings. Yet for some reason the mixture seems very thin. Orlund takes over whisking….. then he asks me “are you sure this is instant pudding?” “yes” then I read the package “I give up!!!” Nope it wasn’t instant pudding!!! Here is a picture of our “pie” (of course we had already poured it into the crust when we noticed it wasn’t instant!). Luckily I had some instant pudding on hand so Orlund mixed it up and we still had a yummy dessert. Orlund also tried to fix this one, so placed it in the oven to ‘cook’ it….. So the picture is what the non-instant chocolate pudding pie ended up looking like…………..
