Pie Crust Options
For the pie crust, you can buy a frozen one in the supermarket and follow the instructions for baking it. Or, you can make a pie crust from scratch if that's more your style. When I go this route, I make the pie crust from the recipe below:
With that said, if you want to skip having to bake a crust and make a completely no-bake chocolate pudding pie, you have two options. You can either buy a premade graham cracker crust or an Oreo pie crust. Both work great to make this instant pudding pie.
How To Make Jello Pudding Pie
Step 1: Preparing the Pie Crust
So, the first thing you'll have to do is prepare the pie crust. If you have decided to use a frozen one, then start by baking it according to the package's instructions.
Or, if you're making one from scratch, that's the first thing you'll want to do.
Step 2: Preparing the Pie Filling
0nce the pie crust is baking, you can make the instant chocolate pudding filling.
So, to do that you'll want to add the milk, butter, instant pudding, chocolate chips, sugar, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt to a pot set over medium-low heat. Then, continuously stir the chocolate pudding mixture until everything has melted and is combined.
Step 3: Building the Chocolate Pudding Pie
The last step for making this chocolate pie is pouring the filling over the pie crust.
So, once the crust is ready you can pour the filling on top of it. Then, top the pie with some chocolate curls, chocolate chips, or mini chocolate chips, and refrigerate it for about 3 hours or until it sets.
Then, once it sets, slice the pie into about 8 slices, serve it topped with some whipped cream, and enjoy!
If you end up with leftovers, cover the pie dish with plastic wrap or just put the slices in an airtight container and store them in the fridge. Stored like this, they'll stay good for up to two days. To keep for longer, you can freeze the pie in a freezer-safe bag or container for about 3 months. Just let it thaw before enjoying.
