Chocolate Pudding Pie

A rich no-bake dessert for your summer evenings!

IMG_6045Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 30 chocolate wafer cookies, such as Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafers (I’d actually strongly remember using 15 Oreos instead, as the leftover Oreos are way way better than the leftover Nabisco cookies)
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Filling:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups 1% milk
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon white rum OR 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • fresh raspberries and whipped cream, for serving

IMG_6023To make the crust, process the wafers in a food processor until finely ground.

IMG_6021Add the melted chocolate and oil and continue to process until well blended. Press into the bottom and sides of a 9″ pie plate. Freeze 15 minutes, or until set.

IMG_6022In the meantime, make the filling. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, and salt in a large saucepan and whisk well. Add 1 cup of the milk and the egg yolks and whisk until smooth, then whisk in the remaining milk. Cook over medium heat until thickened and bubbly, 5-10 minutes, stirring constantly.

IMG_6024 Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.

IMG_6026Stir in the rum or vanilla, then pour into the crust.

IMG_6027Cover with saran wrap and chill 4 hours, or until set.

IMG_6041Serve with the berries and whipped cream.

Chocolate Pudding Pie

From myrecipes.

  • 30 chocolate wafer cookies, such as Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Wafers (which I learned while making this are boring/bad alone, but taste like the cookie part of Oreos when used in a crust) or 15 Oreos

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Filling:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
