Chocolate Pudding Pie
with Oreo cookie crust

Well hello strangers! I am super excited to be back in blogging action. Lots has been going on since my last post. New job, new hours, new tiredness. Regardless I am back with lots to share. Some great dinners and cupcakes coming up.
First I will share with you this SUPER easy dessert. I used boxed pudding which saved lots of time and steps. However if you are feeling a step above Betty Crocker than go ahead and try this pudding recipe.
You can also use a pre-made crust but they are extremely easy to make. All it takes is some cookie crumbs and melted butter and there ya go.
You can also make this slightly healthier by using the reduced sugar and calorie pudding packets with skim milk but be prepared for lack of flavor. I used a regular pudding mix with low fat chocolate milk. Really amps up the chocolate flavor while cutting the fat down a little.
The making of the pie took a little less than 15 minutes. If you don't have a food processor to crush the cookies it might take a tad longer. But beating a bag of cookies is very therapeutic.
It does have to set in the fridge for a few hours so go ahead and make this earlier in the day or the day before you want to enjoy it.

Chocolate Pudding Pie
  • 1 packet of chocolate pudding mix
  • 2 cups low fat chocolate milk, make your own by adding chocolate syrup to the low fat milk

  1. In a medium saucepan stir together pudding packet and milk.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, while stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. While pudding is cooling, crush Oreo cookies in a large zip top bag or in a food processor, until you have a fine crumb.
  5. Empty crumbs into a bowl and pour in melted butter.
  6. Mix until butter is absorbed and pour into pie dish, pressing down to form crust.
  7. Pour the melted pudding over the crust.
