Caramel Creme Pie

Inspired by the Movie

Christmas With the Kranks

I am so excited to bring you this delicious Caramel Creme Pie recipe. I love the holidays, Christmas and Halloween being my favorites. Part of my every year traditions is watching as many of the wonderful Christmas movies as I can. One of my most loved Christmas movies is Christmas With the Kranks, starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis. If you haven’t watched it, put it on your MUST SEE list for this season!

In the movie, the daughter, Blair, is coming home unexpectedly for Christmas, and her parents have to throw together a fabulous Christmas Eve party in a few short hours. Unaware of what has been going on at the house while she has been away, Blair, makes a request for her favorite Caramel Creme Pie, and that is the inspiration for this scrumptious recipe.

So, I made a quick trip to the Holiday Bake Center at my local Walmart, and picked up the few items I needed. This is such an easy and inexpensive recipe–only 6 ingredients, plus one optional.

I already had a pie crust at home along with some milk and heavy cream, so I grabbed these items off the shelves…

… Jell-O Vanilla Instant Pudding & Pie Filling, Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme, Kraft Caramel Bits, and a Baker’s Premium White Chocolate Bar. Now, all that was left was to make my pie!

Caramel Creme Pie — easy as can be!

The Ingredients:

1- 5.1 oz. box Jell-O Vanilla Instant Pudding, 1- 11 oz. bag (approx. 1-1/2 cups) Kraft Caramel Bits, 1/4 cup Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme, 2 teaspoons Heavy Cream, 1-1/2 cups Milk (cold), and 1- Pie Crust (baked or ready-to-eat).

NOTES: Save out a few Kraft Caramel Bits for garnishing the finished pie. You will use the rest of the Heavy Cream to make whipping cream for pie decoration and / or serving. Use whatever type of pie crust you desire.

OPTIONAL: Shave some Baker’s Premium White Chocolate to garnish the finished pie.
