Before I turned healthier and swore off candy, I LOVED Almond Joy and Mounds. Here's my compromise

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare small box instant pudding, using buttermilk instead of milk.
  2. Mix in extract (s); set aside.
  3. Prepare 1 envelope Knox gelatin with 1/4 cup cold water.
  4. Use glass measuring cup to mix gelatin.
  5. Set mixture in a pot or pan of hot water, while still in the cup, to help dissolve gelatin.
  6. Gelatin is dissolved when mixture is clear.
  7. Wire whisk gelatin into pudding and fold in the 8-oz cool whip.
  8. Pour into prepared crust; chill.

Not a fan! Sry... it's just has too much twang and not enough zing. In defence of the pie - I am used to full fat, silky smooth and yummy chocolate mouse type pies.

No fair!!! Only 5 stars? This deserves 10!!! So smooth and rich it is hard to believe it is so low in fat and sugar. The buttermilk gives it a nice zing. I used low-fat buttermilk and sugar-free Cool whip. I topped it with roasted almond slices. The filling would be great as a mousse without the crust. Thanks for an elegant, yet healthy dessert! Made for My-3-Chefs 2008.
