Mocha Nut Pie

My daughter expressed an interest in a chocolate pie recently. I thought no problem, I will get one of those No-bake kits next time I was at the store. Sadly, our commissary seems not to carry them. I wonder if they exist elsewhere-likely I imagine.

When this recipe showed up in my rummage through Nini’s recipe box-I thought Aha! I A perfect substitute. Ok, we leave the nuts out.

From a Parade recipe sponsored by General Foods Kitchens in 1965….Whip’n Chill Dessert Mix can be subbed with 2 boxes chocolate instant pudding with 2 cups Cool Whip or prepared Dream Whip mixed in or with the Chocolate Mousse mix.

Mocha Nut Pie

1 package Chocolate Jell-o Whip’n Chill Dessert mix

1 baked 8″ pie shell, cooled
1/4 cup chopped nuts

Prepare Whip’n chill as directed on the package, adding instant coffee to the mix. Add nuts. Chill in pie shell 2 hours. Top with Dream Whip Whipped topping mix and chocolate curls.
