Cooking up Trouble

The sis-in-law and I cooked up a little trouble tonight.  We try to eat healthy, we really do (she's much better at it than I am).  We ate a nice and tasty dinner she whipped up and followed it with some healthy-ish homemade ice cream.  Yes, she's that good.  Yes, it makes me sick too.

Despite how proud I was of eating healthy my sweet tooth woke up and said, "What about me?!?!"  This was bad since it decided to wake up in the middle of the bakery section at Wal-mart.  Surrounded by sugar I made the wish that there was a tasty, healthy option that I could feel good about.  My sister-in-law had an answer.  Sugar Free Jello.  Wow.  I was very excited about this.  Oh, I'm sorry, you can't read sarcasm.  Yay rah.  I trudge to the aisle with her and looked around.  We wanted Cook n Serve so we wouldn't have to wait as long, but they were out of Chocolate.  Not that we blame others for wanting Sugar Free Chocolate pudding.  She suggested that we add chocolate chips and then we did a little thinking.  We grabbed two boxes of the Vanilla and headed home to rummage around.

For this recipe, which we are very proud to say we actually made up ourselves, you will need:

1 box of Sugar Free Cook n' Serve Vanilla Pudding
2 cups of milk
2 spoons of Nutella
1 big spoon of Peanut Butter

Note the very careful measuring we did.

Make the pudding according to the directions on the box using the 2 cups of milk.  As you cook, you will notice the pudding start to thicken up.  This is when you add other ingredients.  You want to have the Nutella and Peanut Butter melt.  Honestly the only reason we added Peanut Butter was because we ran out of Nutella, because seriously there is absolutely nothing wrong with Nutella.

We poured the pudding into coffee mugs so it would cool a little bit quicker, we were going for warm, not hot pudding.

 Then we got a little fancy.  Really fancy.  It doesn't get much fancier unless you put it in matching mugs or martini glasses.

You should try this.  It is easy and tastes great.  You can change it up by adding chocolate chips instead.  Sweet tooth is satisfied.  Oh yeah.
