My thoughts all stray

No matter how I try, I keep coming back to chocolate desserts. Subconsciously I must be trying to find the one that will make me love chocolate the way everyone else I know does. I've still yet to find it, although Thatboy doesn't mind the consent attempts. This one in fact, he requested I not send into work so he could enjoy it night after night. It's basically pudding in a pie shell, which could be why Thatboy enjoyed it so much. Can you think of anything that would bring back more nostalgia than chocolate pudding?

Chocolate Pudding Pie
  • pie dough
    • 1 14-oz. can condensed milk
    • 2/3 cup water
    • 1 pkg. chocolate pudding mix
    • 1 oz. square unsweetened chocolate
    • 2 cups heavy cream
  1. Preheat oven to 450. Roll out pie dough and place in pie pan. Line pie crust with foil and bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 more minutes.
  2. In large saucepan, combine condensed milk, water and pudding mix; mix well.
  3. Add chocolate.
  4. Over medium heat, cook and stir rapidly until chocolate melts and mixture thickens. Remove from heat; beat until smooth. Cool. Chill thoroughly; stir.
  5. Whip cream with electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold into pudding mixture.
  6. Pour into pie crust.
  7. Chill 4 hours until set.

  1. I love, love, love chocolate but can't stand chocolate pudding because of the texture. [shudder] Weird, I know.

  2. OH MY GOSH! This is making me drool! It looks sooooo good!

  3. Looks so chocolatey and delicious!

  4. I love chocolate pudding pie. My mom used to make these when we were young. Well she still does, sometimes with whipped cream on top. It is a comforting pie!

  5. I like the configuration of this. It reminds me that I haven't made pudding cake in ages. These kinds of treats have about a 20 minute staying power before the plate is completely cleaned.

  6. if it's chocolate, i can almost always support it. this definitely falls into that category!

  7. You should check out the chocolate chess pie in my blog. It's delicious...maybe it would make you love chocolate!

  8. Yum! I have some leftover chocolate ganache that I've been wondering what to do with, and this sounds perfect. I think I will use a chocolate crust and go all out!

  9. Chocolate is a good thing to keep coming back to!

    I'll take a piece, please. Just leave it on the steps of my blog. Thank you very much. ;-)
