Vanilla-Caramel Pie

I should have taken a picture before it was cut but I guess I was too eager to begin feasting on it.

My mom made this delicious pie for us last week when we were out visiting. It was sooooo good. We ate it even before it was completely set...and then had leftovers when it was properly set up. I think the name is totally lame and does not do it justice at all.

This is a freezer pie, so you can make it, freeze it and pull it out when you have last minute company. But of course that ruse never works for me. I know it's in the freezer so there is no way it's gonna stay untouched waiting for some "last minute company" to arrive.

After the kids had already had another dessert - I found them attacking this last sliver of pie with a couple of spoons.

Vanilla - Caramel Pie

1 pre-prepared graham wafer crust (or make your own from scratch)


1 1/2 c milk
1 pkg vanilla instant pudding

Mix together and let sit for 5 minutes.

Add to filling:

1 large container Cool Whip (slightly softened)
3/4 pkg Hershey Chipits Skor Bits

Freeze and enjoy.

Now here are some changes I would make because I think chocolate makes everything better. I would use Skor candy bars crushed up, instead of the Skor Bits. Or I would use the Skor bits and then add some chocolate shavings on top...or mix in bits of chocolate when adding the Skor bits.
