Total Time2 hrs 20 mins
- 8 oz white chocolate divided
- 1/2 cup butter divided
- 1/3 cup water
- 6.8 oz instant white chocolate pudding mix 2 3.4 oz packages
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 21 oz cherry pie filling 1 can - optional but recommended
Line an 8x8 inch pan with aluminum foil, allowing the foil to extend over the sides of your pan.
Place half (4-ounces) of the white chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl, along with 6 tablespoons of the butter and 1/3 cup water. Microwave on high power for approximately 2 minutes, or until the butter is melted. Stir, then add the dry pudding mix and stir to combine.
Add powdered sugar one cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. The mixture is fairly thick, so I found it easier to use my stand mixer. Mix until smooth and well combined.
Microwave the remaining chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter for 1 1/2 minutes, or until the butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Spread over the pudding mixture. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
Top with cherry pie filling, if desired.
