Magically Delicious!


Nope. I'm not talking about Lucky Charms! ;o) I'm talking about Magic Pudding Dessert. I'm not sure if that is what it is called or not, but its what I'm calling it! I know this originates as a Weight Watcher Recipe from Aimee's Adventure but I don't have points or calorie listing. Also, I don't see where that website is up and running anymore, but I don't think it would be too hard to figure out!

The kids were coming to see me yesterday to visit with me before I take off to have my surgery (which is tomorrow morning). I wanted to have something here we could eat without going to a lot of work. My energy level is really low! Everyone likes this dish, but Grumpy really likes this dish! I guess it is because it is mostly convenience food. lol

Magic Pudding Dessert

1 (1.4 oz) package sugar free chocolate instant pudding
2 cups skim milk
32 fat free saltine crackers
1 (8 oz) container fat free cool whip

Mix instant pudding and milk together. Place 16 crackers in bottom of 8x8 pan. Pour half the pudding mixture on top of crackers, spreading evenly. Place the other 16 crackers on top of pudding, and then pour the other half of the pudding mixture on top of the last set of crackers. Top with the whole container of cool whip. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours. The "magic" part - after the dessert sits long enough, the crackers taste exactly like a thin layer of either phyllo or pie crust! Serves 6.

  8. I've made this before, and it is "magical" how the crackers turn into a crust. I'm sad Aimee's website isn't up anymore, she had some great stuff there.
