What is better than chocolate pudding? Chocolate pudding pie, of course!

Don’t get me wrong, I love cake, but at the end of the day, the pies have it. Give me some fruit in a crust and you will be my BFF. But sometimes you just need chocolate.

 

The filling for this chocolate cream pie is dead easy to make—it’s actually a modified version of our Microwave Chocolate Pudding! It is easy to make the whole pie in the one day without feeling stressed.

PICK A CRUST, ANY CRUST!

You could make this perfect pie crust or this graham cracker crust. If you want a chocolate crust, simply substitute chocolate wafers for the graham crackers.

Or if you really need a pie in a hurry, here are a few store-bought crusts that Elise recommends.

EASY 10-MINUTE FILLING IN THE MICROWAVE

Once you have the crust, it’s on to the filling. Do you have 10 minutes? Because that’s all the time you will need to make it in the microwave.

The only caveat here is to be sure the filling bubbles in the center at the end of cooking to be certain that the cornstarch cooks. Now pour that chocolate goodness into the cooled crust of your choice and wait.

And wait.

It feels like forever, but you can get on with your day knowing that by dessert time, you will have a deep, dark chocolate pie in the fridge. No one can argue with that.
