From Karen Danielson "It's another beautiful sunny day here in Pennsylvania.  I want to share a great summertime "treat" recipe called Frozen Pudding Sandwiches.  I don't remember where the recipe came from, but I wouldn't be surprised it was on a Jell-O« Pudding box.  I've included it in my up and coming cookbook, "Homecooking 101; Collections and Creations from Karen Danielson's Kitchen".

When my kids were little I would make these about once a week in the summertime.  Every time I turned around I would hear the freezer door slamming shut and somebody's little butt would be running down the steps and out the side door.  Now I've started to make them for Brian and Ian and Clay Danielson, my three grandsons, and guess what?  History repeats itself!!"

Frozen Pudding Sandwiches

1-1/2 cups cold, skim milk
1-1/2 cups creamy or chunky-style reduced-fat peanut butter
1   4-serving size box Jell-O chocolate instant pudding mix (Note #1)
24 double graham crackers -- broken in half

Using electric mixer, on lowest speed, gradually add milk to peanut butter, blending until smooth and creamy.  Add pudding mix and continue to beat slowly with mixer at lowest speed for two minutes.  Let stand for five minutes.

Spread filling 1/2" thick on 24 of the cracker halves and then top them with the other 24 halves, making sandwiches.  Smooth the edges.  Place in a plastic container with lid and freeze until firm, about 3-4 hours.      

Watch them disappear!!   (Note #2)

Note #1:   I checked around my supermarket the other day and found that Royal makes a sugar-free instant pudding.   Maybe Jell-O does, too, but it wasn't on my grocer's shelf.  The peanut butter, graham crackers, and skim milk give this treat some nutrient value so you can feel good about making them for the kids.  They are not just "empty" calories.

Note # 2:  Serving Ideas : for the grown-ups: dip these wonderful chocolate sandwiches into hot coffee while they are still frozen.  What a delightful taste treat that is!!

P.S.    I received a call at home the other day from a Sneaky Kitchen reader (she lives here in my community).  She wanted to let me know that she had made the Chicken a la King for company and everyone loved it.  What a better testimony for a cookbook?

Note from Bess:  
I'm glad the feedback "egged you on".  We're looking forward to getting our hands on that cookbook.   Meanwhile, gotta sneak off before the grocery closes and buy some instant chocolate pudding and graham crackers!
