Chocolate Pudding Pie

There are exactly three types of pies I love  - chocolate, pecan and pumpkin (this one to be very specific). The other varieties with fruits do not really interest me. Being the chocolate fiend I am, I made chocolate pudding pie from the famous "The Pioneer Woman".  The pie was made solely for the purpose of indulging but the recipe is so simple, gorgeous looking, and most of all delicious - I just had to share it with you guys. I am sure most food bloggers can agree with me when I say, there is not enough time to try other bloggers' recipes from the internet, so I am glad I finally got to try something that has been on my mind for a while. I could totally see chocolate pudding pie on your 4th of July recipe list this weekend.chocolate pudding pieChocolate pudding begins with milk + sugar + corn starch for that pudding texture. Chocolate, vanilla extract, and butter is added for that shiny look; the luscious chocolate concoction is then poured on a pie shell. I cheated here and used store bought pie shell which had to be used (don't ask me how long I have had it for? just don't..).chocolatepuddingpieThe most difficult part about chocolate pudding pie is waiting because since it's a no-bake recipe, it takes at least a good 5 hours in the refrigerator to chill and set. The timing may vary a little bit depending on how often your open/close your refrigerator as well. ;PchocolatepuddingpieI pretty much followed Ree's recipe for Chocolate Pie  so please refer to that. The only thing I did different was reduce the sugar to 1-1/4 cup instead of 1-1/2 cup. If you are using semi-sweet chocolate chips and do not like your dessert to be too sweet, it probably won't hurt to reduce it to 1 cup.chocolatepie chocolatepuddingpie[Tweet "Chocolate Pudding Pie - Easy, Luscious No Bake Recipe!
