CHOCOLATE PUDDING PIE – THE BEST EVER
Wonderful flaky pie crust filled with dreamy homemade chocolate pudding, topped with fresh whipped cream and sprinkled with chocolate shavings. Cool, creamy, smooth and delicious. Most importantly, it’s chocolate! Chocolate pie heaven. Simple to make too.
Look at this pie…what’s not to love?! My sister has a pretty large family (6 boys) and always doubles the recipe making two pies. She’s lucky to get a slice, it goes so fast. If you plan to make this for a large group – be sure to make two!
