So what do you think? Isn't she prrrrdy?
Ok, for this recipe, you will need:
For the vanilla pudding:
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup corn starch
1/4 tsp salt
**1/3 cup chocolate powder - ONLY if making chocolate pudding
2 1/2 cups milk
4 egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Peanut Butter Crumbs:
Blend 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
& 1 cup powdered sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tablespoons powdered sugar
**whip till stiff peaks form
Graham Cracker Crust:
use your own homemade kind OR
1 pre-made graham cracker crust
COOKING DIRECTIONS FOR PUDDING:
In a medium saucepan OFF heat, whisk together the dry ingredients. Gradually whish in milk, taking care to dissolve the corn starch. Whisk in egg yolks. Place saucepan on medium heat whisking continuously until first big bubble splatter. Reduce to low and continue cooking and stirring for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. If you have lumps in your pudding, which I did not, pour through a sieve or sifter to remove lumps. Add vanilla and butter to hot pudding. Pour pudding into bowl and cover with plastic, making sure it touches the pudding. This will prevent a skin from forming. Unless of course you like to eat that, then just leave the plastic wrap off.
Chill pudding overnight. When ready to assemble, add 3/4 cup peanut butter crumbs on bottom of pre-made graham cracker crust. Add pudding, then top with more peanut butter crumbs, then whipped cream, and then finish it off with more crumbs on the top. That's it!
