You will know I'm a true Midwesterner when I tell you that I used to request this pie every year for my birthday when I was growing up.
This pie is not fancy. It is nowhere near gourmet. Let's be real — two of it's ingredients are Cool Whip and pudding packets. No artisan dark chocolate or hand-whipped toppings here.
But it's damn good. And whomever you feed it to will love you and it will be devoured. Sorry, no seconds unless you make this pie just for yourself, which I don't think is a bad idea, really.
So, for one night, forget your organic ingredients, your slow-roasted cacao beans and your soy-based creams and indulge in some whole-fat, store-bought ingredient love. I promise you it will be well worth it.
