Pumpkin Surprise

This is one of my kid's favorite desserts. I usually start making it in the fall, but they love it year round. We call it pumpkin surprise- it's an easy twist on the pumpkin pie theme... And since there's no baking required, it's right up my alley!

Pumpkin Surprise

1 package vanilla instant pudding mix (6 oz)
2 cups milk
15 oz canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
whipped cream or cool whip for topping

Combine pudding mix, canned pumpkin, pie spice, and milk. Follow directions on package to mix.

Spoon pudding mixture into dessert dishes. Serve immediately or chill. (Top with whipped cream before serving.) Makes 8 servings.

Variations- Reduce pumpkin to 1/2 can for a milder flavor. Crush graham crackers and sprinkle on top for added texture.

My husband has been begging me to make something with pumpkin. I think I can actually do this and not screw it up! LOL! Thanks!

I make something similar, it's even better served with slices of granny smith apples.

My husband likes pumpkin pie, but not the crust. I definitely have to make this for him! Thanks!
