Merry Christmas! You’ve reached the next stop on the Christmas Ride Blog Event! Hope you’re enjoying the trip so far. There are still a lot of sites to see, recipes to gather and goodies to win.
Today I’d like to share a simple dessert my children, Nick, Zach, Kyle and Jestina ask for every Christmas.
Chocolate Pudding Pie
2 pkg instant chocolate pudding
1 already made graham cracker pie crust
Mix the milk and pudding as directed. Pour onto pie crust. Add the Cool Whip then shave the chocolate bar on top. Done. It takes longer to clean up then it does to make. lol
We also do up a banana pie. Just layer the bottom of the crust with cut bananas, add VANILLA pudding and top with Cool Whip. Chocolate shavings optional.
Mmm…my mouth is watering just thinking about eating chocolate by the Christmas tree. We have an artificial one that looks like a real fur tree, and this year, I bunched up the branches then placed wadded pieces of white garland on them to resemble clumps of snow. Looks nice. In my latest release, VAMPIRE KRISTMAS, the H & h literally fly to Montana to pick out their real tree in the deafening silence of falling snow.
Which brings me to my fun contest today. Just answer this question:
Do you have a real tree or an artificial one?
Leave a comment and I’ll draw a random winner for a digital download of one of my Holiday titles:

Here is a hint to my Christmas song choice: (Title includes the name of one of my children, too.)
Well, way up North where the air gets cold
There's a tale about Christmas that you've all been told
And a real famous cat all dressed up in red
And he spends the whole year workin' out on his sled…
Good luck in the contest!! And if you missed stops or have gotten lost along the way, here are the past blogs where the ride has been spreading Christmas cheer!
