Insanely creamy and ridiculously easy to make, this rich chocolate pie is a delightful treat to whip up anytime you have a craving. A buttery pie crust is filled with a fluffy pudding filling for this dreamy chocolatey treat.

For more simple pie recipes, try our Arkansas possum pie and eggnog pie. Both are heavenly creamy treats that you’ll want to make over and over again.

CHOCOLATE PIE INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

PUDDING: Use your favorite type of creamy chocolate pudding mix for this homemade chocolate pie recipe. If the pudding is cooked, be sure that it is cooled completely before mixing it into the whipped cream so that it doesn’t melt.

TOPPING: You can top the pie with chocolate curls, chocolate shavings, chocolate chips, or sprinkles. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate would be equally yummy. To make shaved chocolate, use a vegetable peeler to grate it from a chocolate bar.

CRUST: An Oreo cookie crust, regular chocolate cookie crust, or graham cracker crust is also delicious with this easy chocolate pie. If you want to use the traditional pie crust listed in the ingredients, you can either use a store-bought crust or a homemade pie crust recipe.

MILK: Any milk will work fine, but we find whole milk will make this pie extra creamy.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CHOCOLATE PIE RECIPE

PRO TIP:

Whether you are using store-bought or your own crust, make sure it is baked first.

STEP ONE: Prepare the pudding according to the package instructions. For cook and serve pudding, bring pudding mix and milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. For instant pudding, whisk together pudding mix and milk until pudding is thickened.

STEP TWO: Fold 1 cup of the whipped cream into the pudding and milk mixture until thoroughly combined.

STEP THREE: Spoon pudding mixture into the prepared pie crust and spread evenly. Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 3 hours.

PRO TIP:

If you are using a store-bought pie crust and it is in a foil pie plate, we’d recommend placing that inside a glass pie dish for added stability.

STEP FOUR: Slice and serve with additional whipped cream.

PRO TIP:

Freezing this chocolate pudding pie helps it set more quickly and slice cleanly.

HOW TO SERVE

Chocolate lovers will never say no to a piece of this delicious pie at dessert time. The chocolate flavor is over-the-top decadent, and the buttery pie crust a classic choice. Add a dollop of whipped cream on top of the pie. To add even more chocolate goodness, serve with a mug of whipped hot chocolate to wash it down.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Keep leftovers of this no-bake pie in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, covered in plastic wrap.
