Bonus Recipe: Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie

Cherry ingredients:
1/4 to 1/3 cup all fruit cherry jam

Pudding ingredients:
3-1/2 cups 1 percent milk
Two small (4 serving size) packages chocolate sugar-free instant pudding

Topping ingredients:
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 packet sweetener
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon sugar-free hot chocolate mix (optional)

Cherry layer:
Evenly spread jam over the bottom and half way up the sides of the pie crust.*

Pudding layer:
Thoroughly beat together milk and pudding mix for one to two minutes. Gently pour the pudding over the raspberry layer, and refrigerate. Allow two hours to gel.

For best results, wait until just before serving the pie to prepare the topping. Beat the whipping cream until peaks form and then droop. Add Equal and vanilla. Beat until stiff. Spread a thin layer of topping over the entire pie. Dust topping with sugar-free hot chocolate mix.
Or you may prefer to beat the jam into the pudding after the pudding is thoroughly mixed.
