What You Need

 graham crackers, finely crushed (about 1 cup crumbs)
Tbsp.  sugar
cup  margarine or butter, melted, divided
pkg.  (4 oz. each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate (6 oz.), divided
cups  cold milk
pkg.  (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding

Make It

MIX graham crumbs, sugar and 1/3 cup of the margarine. Press firmly onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie plate; set aside. Place remaining 1/3 cup margarine and 4 oz. chocolate in small saucepan; cook on medium heat until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Spread onto bottom of crust; set aside.

POUR milk into medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Pour into crust. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Meanwhile, use remaining 2 oz. chocolate to make chocolate curls (see Tip). Refrigerate until ready to use.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.
How to Make Chocolate Curls
Melt 2 oz. BAKER’S Semi-Sweet as directed on pkg. Spread with spatula into a very thin layer on a baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly along the baking sheet, under the chocolate, so the chocolate curls as it is pushed. (If chocolate is too firm to curl, let stand a few min. at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use a toothpick to carefully place chocolate curl on a wax paper-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on dessert. Store any remaining curls in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months.
