Chocolate Graham Pudding Dessert - My square pie

We had a few warmer than I expected days a few weeks ago, meaning dessert would not be oven baked. I was reminded that all too soon the weather here in Florida would be a “no way am I baking” situation. Chocolate graham pudding dessert is a [square] chocolate pie with butterscotch and graham cracker topping. Red, my dessert partner, described this dessert as the most wacky delicious pudding dessert ever. Guess he liked it, huh? Oh and I should tell you that the original recipe came from a box of Granny Ella’s Honey Graham Crackers.

9 Graham Crackers, crushed to 1 ¼ cups
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
6 Tbsp. butter, melted

Butter an 8” by 8” pan/dish. Whirl crackers in a processor until crushed. Combine the crumbs, sugar, and baking cocoa; stir to mix. Add melted butter and mix well. Press into the bottom and partway  up the sides of the dish. Leave some thickness where the bottom and side intersect as you press up the side. This helps support the edges when serving. Set aside.

1 1/2 cups milk (I used low fat)
1 package chocolate instant pudding mix
1 cup sour cream

Combine milk and pudding mix. Beat about one minute or until thickened. Blend in the sour cream. Pour over crust.

1 Graham Cracker, crushed
1/4 cup butterscotch chips

Whirl cracker and chips until crumbly. Sprinkle over pudding mix and press gently in place. Chill 2-3 hours or until completely set. Makes approximately 6 servings.

If truth be told, this was an amazing dessert; simple to prepare and yet so pleasingly rich. Too bad I didn't have a big dollop of home made whipped cream to plop on top. If so, my square chocolate pudding pie would have earned the title outrageous square chocolate pie dessert!
