Quintuple Chocolate Pudding Pie

My husband.
Great father.
Smart.
Funny (sorta).
Or nerd.
Whichever term you prefer.
What kind of geeky stuff does he like?
Star Wars.
One Piece.
Video games.
Comics, online and traditional.
Tech stuff.
Being married to a geek is pretty cool.
It’s nice to have someone I can share my obsession love for Doctor WhoFirefly, and Community with.
I’m also okay with him saying I know when I tell him I love you.
And I bet if I ever called him a scruffy looking nerf herder, he wouldn’t mind one bit.

Quintuple Chocolate Pudding Pie

Ingredients

Crust

2 cups chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs (16-17 cookies)

½ tablespoon granulated sugar

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Filling

2 (3.9 oz) packages chocolate pudding mix

2 ¾ cups whole milk

7 chocolate sandwich cookies, roughly chopped

Topping

1 (8oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons chocolate syrup

1 (8 oz.) tub whipped topping (such as Cool Whip)

1 tablespoon dark chocolate, finely chopped or grated

½ teaspoon sea salt (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350⁰F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cookie crumbs, sugar, and butter. Press crumb mixture onto the bottom and a little up the sides of a 9-inch spring form pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack.
  3. In a medium bowl, add chocolate pudding mix and milk. Whisk for about 2 minutes. Pour pudding mixture over crust. Sprinkle cookie pieces over pudding mixture. Put in refrigerator while making topping mixture.
  4. In a large bowl add cream cheese, sugar, and chocolate syrup. Beat with hand mixer until smooth. Gently fold in whipped topping. Remove pie from refrigerator and carefully spoon cream cheese mixture over pudding. Sprinkle chocolate and sea salt over whipped topping mixture. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set.

    I’ve made this for a few different get-togethers and have gotten SO many compliments. I even had someone who can’t eat chocolate offer to pay me to make him a non-chocolate version.
