Root Beer Float Pie
15 mins (prep 15)
6 ingredients
1 servings
Received this from a Taste of Home email and the description made me sit up and take notice (not to mention the great photo) It stated: "The kind of recipe kids will look back on and always remember and the only appliance needed is the fridge" Well, I'm keeping my 2 grandsons this weekend and I'm going to make it for them as they LOVE root beer floats. The recipe states is Diabetic friendly (I don't know a lot about that to confirm) and uses fat and sugar free - but thinking for my boys I'm going to go all out with the fats and sugar.Prep time does not include chilling.I've been reading some of the reviews on this and a lot of folks seem to have a problem with it setting up; so thinking I'm going to do TWO things, first cut the root beer down to 1/2 cup, AND add 2 teaspoons of root beer extract. I also might try a 3.4 ounce box of pudding instead of the 1.7 sugar free - knowing this will of course change the sugar content.
