For some reason I have a strange attraction to cherries . . . I love fresh cherries, canned cherries, dried cherries . . . and chocolate covered cherries!
And for some reason I crave cherries in the winter. Go figure.
Well, it is winter and I am craving cherries. Maybe this sweet little lower calorie dessert will do the trick.
8 oz. thawed Lite Cool Whip
1 graham cracker pie crust
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (4-serving) Sugar-Free instant chocolate pudding
1 cup Lite or No Sugar Added cherry pie filling
Spread 1 cup of whipped topping on bottom of pie crust. Combine milk and pudding mix in bowl. Blend with wire whisk for 1 minutes. Fold in 1 1/2 cups of the whipped topping.
Spread pudding mixture over whipped topping layer. Spread remaining whipped topping over top, leaving a 1-inch border and forming a depression in the center of the topping.
Spoon cherry pie filling in the center. Chill at least 2 hours. Garnish with melted chocolate if desired.
