NO BAKE BOSTON CREAM PIE

No Bake Boston Cream Pie | An easy version of this classic treat!
Warren’s all time favorite dessert is classic Boston Cream Pie. I had never heard of–much less tasted–Boston Cream Pie when I met Warren and was slightly disappointed to find that it was, in fact, not a pie at all. Because you know how I feel about pie.

Nonetheless, I took it upon myself to learn how to make a Not A Pie Boston Cream Pie From Scratch.
All I can say is: foolish. 
 
I tried to learn how to make Boston Cream Pie From Scratch at a time when I didn’t know you could make brownies from scratch. Because brownies came from boxes. Preferably, boxes from Costco, where all good things originate (see: croissants, ginormous double chocolate muffins, and rotisserie chicken).

Oh, how wrong I was. No. Boston Cream Pie From Scratch required not just one 9-inch cake pan, but two. It required fussy pastry cream that I ruined three or four times before getting it Just Right. Boston Cream Pie From Scratch also required a chocolate ganache that seized three or four times before I gave up and squeezed a bottle of Hershey’s chocolate syrup on top of the whole mess and called it a day.
Warren, of course, gobbled the whole thing up and I realized that all he really wanted was instant pudding with chocolate syrup. Knowing such a thing before attempting Boston Cream Pie From Scratch would have saved me approximately thirty hours of my life and countless ganache-related breakdowns.

And this is also when I realized that I never needed to make Boston Cream Pie From Scratch ever again. Which I haven’t. (Though I do make these Cake Batter Oreo Stuffed Cheesecake Bars on the regular. Go figure.)
Because, as it turns out, No Bake Boston Cream Pie is far simpler than Boston Cream Pie From Scratch, and just about as tasty. Bonus: no nervous breakdowns are necessary to make such a treat. Hop on over to The Collaboreat and see just how easy this lovely treat is to make!
