Supplies for Vanilla Pudding Pie

– heart shaped pan or muffin tins with pink cupcake liners
homemade graham cracker crust
– vanilla pudding
– red food coloring
– whip cream
– Valentine candies

First, you’ll get your graham cracker crust ready. See this recipe for Homemade Graham Cracker Crust. Mix 1-1/2 cups crushed graham crackers, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

You’ll press it into a heart shaped cake pan or into muffin tins with cupcake liners. Bake for 7 minutes and let cool completely.

Mix up your vanilla pudding, following the directions on the package. As you’re whisking the pudding, add in 8-10 drops of food coloring. The more you put in, the less orange and more red/pink it will become. As you can see, mine is even a little too orange and I should have added a couple more drops.

Pour your pudding onto your cooled crust or into your muffin tins.

Using a spatula, spread and smooth out your pudding. Then place this is the fridge for a few hours to help it set up.

Once you’re ready for your party, add a little more cream to the pie with whipped cream. I used whipped cream from a can so I could write with it as I placed it on, but you can make your own and simply pipe it with a frosting bag.

I also added a few m&m candies for a little flare. Who doesn’t love chocolate, pudding, and pie?!! Enjoy this yummy Valentine Pudding Pie at your next Holiday gathering!
