It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like

I better stay away from the scale until next week.

Chocolate Peppermint Pie.  SO worth it.

Chocolate peppermint cream pie:

1 Graham Cracker Crust - cooled

1 package dark chocolate pudding prepared as directed

3 1/2 cups chilled whipping cream
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons peppermint extract
1 teaspoon pink sugar
1 cup whipped cream (for garnish)
chopped Andes peppermint candies and pink sugar

Prepare pudding and cool. Fill pie crust until chocolate layer is about an inch deep. Put any remaining pudding in bowl for a snack later.

Whip whipping cream, powdered sugar, the pink sugar and peppermint extract until stiff peaks form.
If you like, whip remaining whipped cream and pipe onto edge of pie. Sprinkle with 3 or 4 chipped Andes candies and additional pink sugar. Chill and serve.

Thanks for visiting. Having been fortunate enough not to have to diet as a young woman - hitting middle age to find my Metabolism moved to Aruba and didn't even send a postcard was a rude awakening. Thanks for sharing the fun and the pain of getting back in shape. Note: If you are a stranger and include a link in your comment - it will not be posted, to ensure no SPAM or viruses are shared.
