Pistachio Pudding Dessert

Pistachio Pudding Dessert. This is a family favorite! I never had even heard of Pistachio Pudding until this dessert and it is delicious! Trust me on this one. I made it for a BBQ a couple weeks ago and everyone loved it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I am sure you will if you give it a try!

Here are the ingredients: milk, vanilla ice cream, whipped topping, butter, ritz crackers, instant pistachio pudding, and butterfingers.

First, crush the Ritz Crackers in a large bag until you have 2 cups of crushed crackers.
Put the cube of butter into a medium-sized bowl and melt it in the microwave.

Add the 2 cups of Ritz Crackers and mix it around with a fork.

Then press the cracker and butter mixture into the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan. Set this aside while you work on the second layer.

For the second layer of this dessert you need to mix 1 quart of Vanilla Ice Cream, 2 small packages of Instant Pistachio Pudding, and 1 cup of Milk. I just put all 3 into a medium bowl and mix it up with a mixer.

It should look like this when you are done with it.

Spread this layer on top of the cracker layer.

For the third layer you just spread an 8 oz container of Cool Whip on top of the Pistachio Pudding layer.

Then crush 2 regular-sized Butterfingers and sprinkle them on top of the Cool Whip layer. It looks SO good! You are going to want to eat it, but instead you need to cover it with tin foil and put it into the freezer for a couple of hours. (If you want the dessert to be more like pudding you can put it into the fridge for a couple of hours. I like it better frozen but do whatever YOU like!)

Here is a piece cut out of the pan. It is so good and it is easy! I know you will love it! Enjoy!
