    Midwest Maven's Note:

    This is an easy yummy recipe I got out of a Better Homes and Gardens Kid's Cookbook when I was little. The combo of chocolate and cherries is a winner! A great recipe for kids to help with. *Time doesn't include chilling time*

    1. 1
      Crush up the chocolate wafers a few at a time in a big zip lock bag. **(all areas may not have chocolate wafers, it is a cookie like Oreos but without the cream, not a sandwich cookie)**.
    2. 2
      Put the crushed wafers cookies into an 8x8x2 inch pan, reserving 2 tablespoons of the crumbs for later.
    3. 3
      Pour the melted butter over the cookie crumbs in the pan and stir together with a fork.
    4. 4
      With your hands spread the mixture evenly over the inside bottom of the pan, and press firmly to form a crust.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate the crust for 30 minutes or until firm.
    6. 6
      Put the sour cream, milk, and the dry pudding mix into a big bowl, and with an electric mixer beat on low for about a minute, until smooth (then be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again for about 30 seconds).
    7. 7
      Spread the pudding mixture evenly over the wafer crust.
    8. 8
      Carefully spoon the cherry pie filling evenly over the pudding mixture, and then sprinkle the reserved 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs on top.
    9. 9
      Cover with clear plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours or more until cold.
    10. 10
      Cut up and enjoy!

      This is very tasty! I would have never thought of using sour cream to make pudding / pie filling but it works! I couldn't locate choc. wafers but found some Newman's Own choc. cookies that worked perfectly (though I had to guess at an amount to use because they were small - I ended up using about 45). To reduce the fat, I used skim milk and light sour cream. I also used dark cherry pie filling. For presentation purposes, next time I might try to drain some of the "gloop" off of the cherries in the pie filling, since it is a bit messy to dish out. Otherwise, I loved it! Thanks so much for the recipe!

      Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 -Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! I halved this recipe & DS & I made it together! It is so simple to put together & after a few hours in the fridge, we sliced it up & devoured the lot lol! I used black cherry pie filling & added a little cocoa to the pudding mix - the end result was a lot like black forest geateux! Thanks for a super recipe :)
