Diabetes Friendly Chocolate Pie

Prepare pudding as directed on package. Measure 1 cup of filling and cover with plastic wrap; chill thoroughly. Pour remaining filling into graham cracker crust. Chill in fridge.

Beat reserved pie filling with spoon or electric mixer until smooth then blend in 1-1/3 cups of Cool Whip. Spread over filling in pie crust and chill at least 2 hours. Top with remaining Cool Whip.
