I love a good coconut cream pie but one day as I was eating an Almond Joy candy bar the thought ocurred to me that I could turn this flavor into a pie. So that's what I did. The recipe is very simple. First you need to make one small package of chocolate pudding and one small package of vanilla pudding. I prefer the cook and serve type. (For those of you who know me, yes I usually make the pudding from scratch but I was in a hurry today.)
After your pudding is finished add one cup of flaked coconut and 1/4 cup of slivered almonds into the vanilla pudding.
Mix it in good and put into a baked pie shell.
Slightly toast a 1/4 cup of slivered almonds and reserve for the topping.
Take the finished chocolate pudding and pour on top of your coconut cream base. Take it slow so it doesn't overflow. If you have extra just feed it to you kids.
Allow the pie to cool in the fridge for a couple of hours. When it has cooled you can either make a meringue to top it or add cool whip. Decorate with a few sprinkles of coconut and the almonds that you set aside earlier. Enjoy!
Almond Joy Pie and it doesn't get much easier than that!
