A six-ingredient easy triple-layer chocolate pudding pie. A dessert dressed to impress with minimal effort. Perfect for a potluck or holiday celebrations! This chocolate pudding pie only requires six ingredients! When the sweet tooth strikes or you need a dessert that requires minimal effort, this chocolate pudding pie is the perfect solution. Not only is it quick and easy to make, it’s also delicious and will definitely quell those chocolate cravings! It may look elaborate or time consuming with the three different layers, but it couldn’t be easier to make. All three layers originate from just THREE ingredients. Pudding mix, milk, and whipped topping = best ever chocolate pudding pie. The magic happens in mixing those three layers in different amounts. The bottom layer is the straight chocolate pudding, the middle layer is pudding + whipped topping mixed, and the final layer is straight whipped topping. And voila! Easy chocolate pudding pie for the win! Chocolate pudding pie notes Unfortunately low fat products aren’t going to set up in this pie. Sugar-free pudding or sugar-free whipped topping is a no-go. They never get firm enough to get clean cuts of pie. Speaking of “cuts” I found the best results with a sharp knife that I quickly ran under hot water, dried, and then cut into the pie immediately. The reason I recommend using whole milk is because it will allow for the most firm set up of the pie. Lower the percentage of fat in milk and the less firm of a pie you’ll get. If you want an even easier pudding pie you can grab a pre-made chocolate crust on the baking aisle instead of making your own. I used pre-made packaged whipped topping, but making your own whipped topping absolutely will work in this pie. It takes a little bit more prep and a few more ingredients (here’s a how to make whipped cream tutorial), but it works great!
