This chocolate pudding pie recipe is easy to make, because it starts with instant chocolate pudding. But the graham cracker crust is homemade, and the topping is a homemade whipped cream (don't worry—it's really easy), both of which give this pie an incredibly rich flavor. You can garnish this pie is with fresh raspberries and shaved chocolate.


  • For the Crust:
  • 5 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/4 cups graham crackers (crushed)
  • For the Filling:
  • 2 (3.9-ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding (such as Jello chocolate pudding)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Garnish: 1 cup fresh raspberries (and/or shaved chocolate)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather ingredients.

  2. To make the crust, place the butter in a microwave-safe dish and heat until melted, about 1 minute.

  3. Mix melted butter and graham cracker crumbs until moistened.
