Pumpkin Chip Cream Pie

Go on over to Kiki Creates today to see me share some twists on traditional Thanksgiving pies!

Bring on the holiday!  I am so excited to celebrate Thanksgiving with some wonderful families from our ward.  When you are thousands of miles from family, it is always comforting to be able to feel "at home" with friends.    Today I'd like to share with you a yummy pie I came across recently that gives a good twist to a traditional pumpkin pie.  It reminded me of a chocolate cream pie, just pumpkin.  It would be great for someone that doesn't quite like the overwhelming flavor of traditional pumpkin pie.  The little bits of chocolate in it are a nice surprise as well :)

Pumpkin Chip Cream Pie

3/4 cup cold 2% milk
1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix 
2/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips 
1/2 cup canned pumpkin 
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
Slivered almonds and chocolate curls, optional

In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Stir in the chocolate chips, pumpkin and pie spice. Fold in 2 cups whipped topping. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set. Spread with remaining whipped topping; garnish with almonds and chocolate curls if desired.
