We make chocolate pudding pies often and they are loved by all. Only my husband likes to make them with one small package of vanilla pudding and one small package of chocolate pudding. (Not instant, just as the recipe states). My husband's family calls it Moonlight Pie. Easy, good and loved by all. Read More

Very simple to prepare and it was devoured by my family. Used an Oreo chocolate crust instead of a pie crust and added the whipped cream. Topped with some crushed Oreos as a decorative touch. Read More

YUM! I use a grahmn cracker crust or Oreo pie crust. I use jello chocolate fudge pudding mix and prepare like it says on the side (the pudding pie directions) not the actual pudding directions. I then mix in half a tub of whip cream topping. Plop it in the crust and top with whip cream and chocolate chips or crushed oreos. Read More

I make this all the time no matter what holiday like Thanksgiving besides the pumpkin pie I need to make this pie except I add bananas. I slice a banana and coat it with lemon juice and layer it on the bottom and sides of a baked crust and add chocolate filling and chill. Then add the whipped topping and shaved chocolate or chocolate sprinkles. B.J. Read More

This is just like the recipe on the box of pudding except it uses less milk which is an important distinction because it makes a thick rich pudding. I tripled the recipe and it was perfect for 2 deep dish pies. I made my own whipped cream. Thanks!! Everybody loved it. Read More

I have made chocolate pie like this since I was a little girl. The only difference is that I use the pudding that you cook. I've never been able to adjust to instant pudding!! Read More
