Chocolate Dream Pie #OurFamilyTable

Throwback to many of our childhoods here. This Chocolate Dream Pie is just as good as you remember.

I have fond memories of my Mom serving up this easy, no bake, back of the box recipe.  Perfect to share with you today as the members of From our Dinner Table Group celebrate No Bake Dessert Recipes.

I was 5th in line of 6 siblings.  My 4 older brothers have way different food memories of my Mom than I.  By the time I came along in the 50's my Mom had jumped onto the convenience food bandwagon with both feet.  

We had lots of Casseroles made with Campbell Soups.  Spaghetti was now made with Canned or Jarred Sauce.  Frozen dinners were common.  Velveeta was the base for anything creamy or cheesy.  And Dream Whip and Pudding were the makings for pie.  

Back of the box recipes were all the rave and popular throughout the USA.  This was understandable because the convenience products competing for attention out there put the very best recipes on their boxes in hopes of grabbing onto customers. Today many of these same companies post their best recipes on the internet with the same hopes.  

The fact that this Dream Pie recipe is the same today on the internet as it was printed on the box back in the "olden days" attests to it's goodness and popularity.

The fact that it is easily made up, in only 10 minutes, using ingredients often on hand in your pantry makes it the perfect dessert for impromptu Summer gatherings.
