Man, I love pumpkin pie, but I love alternatives too.
I had this Bad Boy last week and it was amazing. Try it, no bake, no mess, no worries.
(h/t Kraft Food for the recipe and picture)
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp caramel ice cream topping, divided
1 graham cracker pie crust
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp chopped pecans, divided
2 packages (3.4 oz each) jello instant pudding
1 cup cold milk (skim, 1-2%, whole...doesn't matter)
1 cup canned pumpkin (roast your own for bonus points)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1-8 oz tub whipped topping, divided
Pour 1/4 cup caramel topping into crust; sprinkle with 1/2 cup nuts.
Whisk pudding mixes, milk, pumpkin and spices until blended; fold in 1 1/2 cups whipped topping. Spoon into crust.
Refrigerate 1 hour. Top with remaining whipped topping. Garnish with caramel swirls and nuts.
Thank me later.
