    • 1/4 cup butter, melted 50 mL

  • Chocolate Layer:

    • 2/3 cup Nestle Carnation 2% Evaporated Milk 150 mL

Directions:

Crust:

Grind cereal to fine crumbs in food processor. Transfer to small bowl; stir in flour and melted butter. Press into bottom and 1/2 inch (1 cm) up side of a 9-inch (23-cm) pie plate. Bake in 425 F (220 C) oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Let cool.
