This is one of my family's favorite recipes. My boys call it 'Mom's Secret Chocolate Pie Recipe' and request it at every family gathering! I always make extra to send home with them. It can be made the night before serving it.

Yummy! This was so easy & we LOVED it! It's very similar to a recipe we've done in a casserole dish for years. I swirled a little caramel sauce on top honestly just to make it pretty but everyone thought it added a very nice compliment to the chocolate. This is a keeper! Thanks sjryan! Youre Mom's a genius!

It was ok, nothing to rave about. The day after making it, I noticed a pink discoloration beginning on the cool whip. Not sure what caused this- the chocolate pudding perhaps? Made it look in appetizing to me. Read More

This pie is the best chocolate pie I have ever tried! The cream cheese layer adds so much flavor to this recipe. I used the smaller pie crust and it made 2 pies and left a little in the bowl for my kids to gobble up. I will definately make this again. Read More

Just made two for Thanksgiving and they were yummy! I used the Hersheys dark chocolate pudding mix and real whipped cream instead of cool whip. Only problem the white cream cheese layer somehow disappeared! Not sure if it just blended with the chocolate layer or what! First time it has happened to me making a double layer desert! Next tim I will chill it before adding the pudding layer. Read More

Loved the flavourful boost the cream cheese layer gave this! Only change was I made a chocolate cookie crumb crust and used real whipped cream on top. Also made a second pie at the same time but with butterscotch pudding instead...that one was great too. Thanks for sharing this recipe!! Read More

Very easy and very good. I had some mascarpone I needed to use so substituted that for cream cheese. My pie dish wasn't deep enough so had pudding leftover but that was ok. Grated a Hershey's chocolate bar on top! Read More

This is such a great recipe! I have probably made it 20 times now. I do mix it up with different types of pudding. I have used lemon white chocolate butterscotch vanilla and banana. All amazing! Tonight I am mixing one box of chocolate with one box of banana pudding:) Thanks for sharing = ) Read More
