"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
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
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.
1-1/2 cups creamy or chunky-style reduced-fat peanut butter
1 4-serving size box Jell-O chocolate instant pudding mix (Note
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.
Watch them disappear!! (Note
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!
