Moon pie is an amazing dessert that the crust looks like the texture of the moon and the taste is out of this world. For the topping it has a creamy vanilla pudding, then topped with whipped topping and then do not forget to drizzle chocolate on top!
My kids love Moon Pie, because it tastes just like an eclair! If you are feeling really ambitious you could put a small flour on top of each piece that you cut. I will have to try that next time. I never even thought about it until I was writing this.
I hope that your Memorial Day was wonderful. We had one that we will never forget. We went for a ride on our Razor. It was such a beautiful drive up through the trees. We were on the mountain top and thinking that we were on top of the world.
We were about two miles from home when my husband shifted out of 4 wheel drive and the Razor made an awful noise. zzzzzz. And then, it would not move; we were stuck.
However we know that we were blessed because about 2 minutes before that, my brother and sister-in-law told us to go past them and that they would eat our dust for awhile. Right after that was when our Razor broke. They even had a towing strap in their Razor and they towed us back to their house.
What Ingredients Do I Need For Moon Pie?
- All-purpose flour
- Vanilla pudding
- Cream cheese
- Whipped topping
- Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup
How Do I Make Moon Pie?
- In a medium sized pan, place 1 cup water and bring to a boil.
- Then place the butter into the boiling water and stir until it is melted.
- On medium heat, add 1 cup flour and stir until it is all blended together.
- Remove from the heat and add salt, and the eggs, one at a time.
- Stir each egg until it is well blended.
- Spray a regular sized cookie sheet, with cooking spray.
- Spread the dough evenly onto the cookie sheet. (I grease my hands and press lightly with my hands).
- Place into a @375 degree oven.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until it is golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and press down with a turner or a spatula.
- Let cool.
- Beat 8 ounces softened cream cheese.
- In a separate bowl, add the milk and the packages of pudding. Stir until smooth.
- Add to the cream cheese.
- When it is well blended, spread evenly over the cooled crust.
- Then spread the Whipped topping over the pudding mixture.
- Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Then that night there was an amazing lightning storm. It was pretty awesome, other than my married daughter and her husband and 3 kids were sleeping in the tent. It was fine until it started to hail, and then the tent leaked!
So, they came into the house and found a spot on the floor. My son, his wife and their son did fine. Their tent did not leak. Well, I guess those are the things that you remember.
If we never had anything exciting happen, then we wouldn’t remember any of our experiences. Anyway, it all worked out in the end and we are home. We use to do this every year, the only problem is that all our families are growing and we have doubled in number.
However, we will just keep enjoying Memorial Day weekend until we are too many in number. So, I hope that you all had a great time and that things went well for you! Have the best week ever!!
P.S. This is not mashed potatoes!
Tips and Tricks for Moon Pie:
- It takes a little effort to stir the dough and so make sure that you can stir, as sometimes my arm gets a little tired, or have someone to help you!
- For a change in the recipe, use chocolate pudding.

Looks delicious!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Thank you for coming by and leaving a comment. I love your little Victorian House!
Would it be possible to use a mixed berry topping instead of the chocolate? If so how would I do that?
Sure, just drizzle with the mixed berry topping instead of the chocolate syrup. That sounds delicious. Enjoy!
Do you have a recipe? I’d like to take advantage of akll the fresh fruit that is available.
I love the idea of taking advantage of all of the fresh fruit that is available. I do not have a recipe for a berry topping. I remember my mother making chokecherry syrup and huckleberry syrup and I know that the method of making those was totally different because the chokecherries were not as sweet as the huckleberries. I’m going to have to go find those recipes and post them. But for now, I am going to give you the following link to a recipe from a good friend of mine who is also a food blogger: https://kitchencents.com/5-minute-simple-berry-syrup/. Thank you for your question. I do want to tell you that I think that if the syrup is not very thick, that it could make your moon pies a little soggy. It kind of need to be more like a topping than a syrup.
You are welcome.
If I put the syrup/topping on when I serve it do you think that would be ok? It shouldn’t get soggy, right?
I would think that it would be OK if you serve it right away. Let me know how it turns out; maybe I will try it!
What size do you consider a regular sized cookie sheet? I have several sizes.
A regular sized cookie sheet is 13″ X 18″.
My whole family has Razors!!! Except me lol. Sounds like a fun Memorial Day! This Moon Pie looks out of this universe too hehehe
I guess that you are just going to have to get one. My husband rides dirt bike and he wants a motor cycle! 🙁 My daughter works in the ER and we do not want him to get one. I guess Razors are a little safer, right? thanks for stopping by and have the best week ever!!!
