Piggy Pie Dessert

 

Piggy Pie Dessert

I was browsing my Grandma’s old church cookbook and came across this recipe. The name is what drew me to it of course! After reading the ingredients I knew that I had to make it. Chocolate pudding, vanilla pudding, a sweetened cream cheese layer, and the most glorious baked crust that you will ever try. I can see why it was popular so many years ago!

I added heath chips (buttery toffee bits) and mini chocolate chips on top just for fun. You can leave them off if you prefer. I think shaved chocolate would also be a lovely way to decorate the top!

Once you try this recipe you may want to play around with it too. Different flavor puddings can be substituted. You can also use cherry pie filling in place of the vanilla pudding for a really decadent ooey-gooey dessert!

How Does this Dessert taste?

So good! The crust is probably the most powerful flavor in this dessert, as the puddings are subtle. The first bite was a bit shocking as I expected there to be more of a chocolate flavor, but what I was really tasting was the lovely pecans. If you want this to be a more powerful chocolate flavor you can use 2 boxes of chocolate instead of the chocolate & vanilla. You can also use more chocolate on top and even drizzle with hot fudge.

If you want perfect cuts where you can see all the layers, make sure that this dessert is well chilled before serving. If you care a little less about the presentation you can serve it immediately after making. It will be a glorious ooey-gooey mess, but still delicious!

  1. For Bronya Seifert, If she would like I will buy some Heath Chips and mail them myself to her. Does this site ever let or allow 2 people to have each other’s email addresses?

  2. All the recipes look an sound so yummy. Good thing I don’t have the money to make them all that I like. Some day one at a time

  3. I’ve been making this for at least 45 years. Sometimes I use the pudding mixes, other times I make my own puddings. I usually make mine sugar free. Now I use Stevia and it works perfectly!!
