Chocolate Cream Pie

Favorite pie….EVER….chocolate cream pie!!!! I know, I need say no more….but you know I will. So, this pie goes back to when my mother first made it. It was the most delicious! That’s when you used the pudding mix in a regular piecrust. From there, it went to mixing whipped cream in the pudding and putting it in a graham cracker crust…Well, you know I had to tweak it a bit to make it healthier!
