Chocolate Pudding Pie for a Simply Divine Dessert

I needed a dessert for a party and wanted something with chocolate. After searching my cupboards, I came up with a few supplies I knew I could throw together. I found chocolate pudding, but added whipped cream I had in the fridge to make it fluffier. Then scooped this all on a graham cracker crust, and Chocolate Pudding Pie was born. It may look simple but it tastes DIVINE! Your friends and family will love you forever for making and sharing this chocolate pudding pie.

  1. My husband and I ate at a great restaurant the other day and split an awesome pie. I am going to try to make it this week. I don’t know for sure, but guessing it had white chocolate pudding mixed with cool whip but they added mini chocolate chips inside and it had a chocolate cookie crust.

  2. Growing up, my mom always made a pie very similar- just add cream cheese to the mixture. And she stored it in the freezer, then pulled it out before dinner to have a few minutes to thaw partially- it doesn’t need much thawing out though. I actually made it for the first time for Easter and it was as good as I remembered it.

  3. I stir 1/2 tsp. of almond extract into the pudding before I fold in the whipped cream. Top with some chopped, toasted almonds or even some cookie crumbs and it looks and tastes like a fancy dessert with very little effort on your part.

  4. My mom made around 7 pies one Thanksgiving, and the first one to go was the last one she made—the extra pie crust she had, filled with plain ol’ pudding/whipped cream. I like the graham cracker crust idea. Yum.

  5. Just clicking over from SITS… and I must say, this is an AWESOME idea! Does it taste at all like chocolate mousse? I adore mousse but am too lazy to make it.

  6. I love pudding pies too! They are so quick and easy. Here is another that comes together in no time at all.

    Frozen Heaven

    9 Ice Cream Sandwiches (I bought a box of 12 and ended up using 10 1/2)
    1 container Cool Whip
    3 Heath bars
    5 Reese’s Peanut butter Cups

    Cover the bottom of a 9X13 inch glass dish with ice cream sandwiches. You may have to cut the last row to make them fit snugly. Spread about 1/4 inch layer of Cool Whip on top of sandwiches. Crumble the candy over the entire dish. Place in freezer until ready to serve. Cut into squares and serve.

    I have a small family so I make this is a 8×8 pan and double stack my Ice Cream Sandwiches with a layer of Cool Whip in between. Yumm-o!

  7. I’m guessing you used instant pudding?
    I can just see some mint flavoring and finely crushed candy canes for Christmas. Or chopped nuts, chocolate curls or sprinkles on the top

    Here’s another really easy, really impressive dessert.
    Whip 1 pint heavy cream with 6 Tbsp sugar and 6Tbsp cocoa powder (not hot cocoa mix) until stiff peaks form.
    Using 2 full stacks of graham crackers, leave them full size, spread the whipped cream between the crackers making an oblong ‘cake’, arranging the crax perpendicular to the long edges of the platter. Use both packages of crax. Do this on your serving platter. Now ice the ‘cake’ with the remaining whipped cream. Either make decorative swirls on top or use sprinkles or nuts. Lightly cover with waxed paper using toothpicks to keep off the top and refrigerate at least 8 hours. To serve, cut down the center lengthwise, then across into servings or on the diagonal. It looks like a multilayer cake that took hours. The taste is wonderful. By ageing 8 hours the graham crackers become soft but still hold their shape.

  8. That looks delicious…and EASY! Thanks for sharing!!!

    BTW…I made a “job jar” (from a previous post) for myself yesterday! My son’s is working out so well! I color coded the sticks for each day, dividing up all of the household chores I want to get done during the week! My son thinks it’s cool that hos mom has one, too! :)
