Chocolate Pudding Pie


This blog post isn’t as much a recipe as it is a reminder of how easy it is to make chocolate pudding pie.  I use ‘refrigerated pie crust’ and ‘cook and serve’ pudding with the enhancement of extract, so I call it “semi-homemade.”

If you’re tasked with bringing dessert to a family gathering or work potluck, this is a super fast and SUPER cheap option with a classic taste and nostalgic look that pleases almost anyone.  🙂



Four ingredients?  Yep!

(not including whipped cream though….)



To begin, let the pie crust come to room temp and then roll it onto a pie plate.



Make sure you push it up and over the edges a bit.  Something I forgot to do… and you’ll see the ‘damage’ it caused coming up in –




Now poke lots of holes in it… and bake it according to package instructions.





*Oh well* 🙂



Now make the cook and serve pudding according to package instructions.



At the end add a teaspoon of vanilla or baker’s extract to enhance the flavor.



Pour it into the pie crust and refrigerate for a few hours to let the pie set.



Serve with whipped cream – and chocolate shavings if you feel like dressing up your pie.

“Cut my pie into four pieces, I don’t think I could eat eight.” – Yogi Berra

Thanks for joining me! Good company always shortens the journey so I'm glad you're here. My name is Tara Benson and I'm 33 years young. I'm an energetic wife and mother with a wild imagination and a bold sense of humor. Consider me 100% right brained. I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version.

We want to teach them that hard work and creativity will always payoff at the end of the day. So welcome! Stick around a while and make yourself at home. -Tara
