Chocolate Pudding Pie

Since it's been so hot out, I don't want to turn my oven on for long periods of time. So quick pies and no-bake cakes are my jam right now.

This pie partially needs to be baked (just the oreo crust), but it is really simple and a perfect treat to bring to a party or BBQ. I hope you try it out and enjoy the chocolatey goodness!




Ingredients


For the Oreo crust:

  • 26 Oreos (use the rest of the package for topping)

  • 3 tbsp melted unsalted butter

  • pinch of salt

For the Filling:

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 3 1/2 tbsp cornstarch

  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

  • pinch of salt

  • 3 cups of whole milk (try to use only whole! anything lighter will cause the pudding to be too loose)

  • 6 egg yolks

  • 8 oz semi-sweet chocolate (I like to use Baker's Chocolate)

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, very cold!

  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar

  • Crushed/whole Oreos (using the rest of the package)


Method

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  • To start the crust, add the Oreos to a food processor with the melted butter and salt. Pulse until the mixture is the texture of wet sand.

  • Firmly and evenly pat the crust mixture into a 9 in pie dish and make sure you are getting the crust up the sides as well.

  • Place the pie crust into the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes until fragrant.

  • Remove the crust and let it cool completely. You are done using the oven now!

  • Using a fine mesh strainer, sift the dry ingredients (sugar, corn starch, cocoa powder and salt) so there are no lumps. Then add it to a saucepan.

  • Slowly mix in the milk and egg yolks and begin warming this mixture on medium-high heat - stirring constantly!!

  • Cook the mixture until it has thickened and is at a low boil - you will see large bubbles (about 9 minutes)

  • Take the saucepan off of the heat and stir in the chocolate, vanilla extract and butter.

  • Pour the mixture into the prepared, cooled crust and let this come to room temp before putting it in the fridge.

  • Let the pie cool in the fridge and set for 6+ hours.

  • When you're ready to serve, whip the cream with powdered sugar using an electric mixer and decorate the top with the extra crushed Oreos.

  • Enjoy!
