Mama’s Famous Chocolate Pudding Pie

Chocolate pudding pie recipe made with pudding and chocolate chips.

I know there are fancier pudding pie recipes out there that are more scratch-made than this one but I’ll tell you what: you won’t find one that tastes better.

My daddy literally ate two of these all by himself one Christmas. I’m not even kidding. TWO!!! And he’s not a big man!!

This is now the one Husband requests too. I told him that I was making a chocolate silk pie from scratch one year instead of Mama’s pie and he just looked at me and said, “Why??”

I have a feeling Mama found this recipe on the side of a Jell-O box or in a holiday advertisement once upon a time but no one can remember. All I know is she’s been making it since before I was born and it gets requested more than any other dessert she makes.

Mama’s Famous Chocolate Pudding Pie
2 3.4-oz boxes cook-and-serve chocolate pudding & pie filling
3 1/2 cups whole milk
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 9” pastry pie crusts, cooked & cooled

Combine pudding mixes, milk, butter and chocolate chips in a medium saucepan. Cook ingredients over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; stirring continually. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes; stirring twice.

Pour filling into pie pastries, cool to room temperature then cover and refrigerate. Serve with whipped cream.

Don’t forget to let the pie cool to room temperature before refrigerating or the pie may split or crack.



  1. When someone asks me the definition of "food porn' I'm going to refer them to your photograph. Outstanding. I think your mother and mine must have been reading the same chocolate pudding box. Good stuff.

  2. I am SO thankful that you fixed it so recipes could be printed from here. I could not print anything you have been posting, it was so frustrating!

  3. LOVE this pie!! So easy and so decadent...THANK YOU so much for sharing!!!!
