What do You Need For This Recipe?
So, all you need for this Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding Pie is:
- Philadelphia whipped cream cheese;
- A box of instant chocolate pudding;
- a 9″ graham cracker crust (store-bought or homemade).
The reason it’s important to use whipped cream cheese is that it’s fluffy enough to whisk into the pudding.
I typically do use pre-made crusts because
I’m incredibly lazy they are so easy. However, on this particular occasion, I made my own with graham cracker crumbs, butter, and brown sugar. Also, I have to say that the homemade crust did taste better, probably because of the butter.
How To Make No-Bake Cheesecake With Chocolate Pudding?
- So, since I baked the crust, I had to let it cool before filling, which did add about a half-hour to the prep time. However, it was worth it if you ask me for this hearty, buttery graham crust.
- Once your crust is ready, you just need to whisk together your pudding mix and milk for a minute or two. Then, whisk in the cream cheese until smooth.
- Finally, spread that gorgeous, fluffy, chocolate pie filling into your crust. (Fortunately, since this is a no-bake recipe, you can lick the spoon with no worry.)
- Put your pie in the refrigerator for at least five minutes before serving. We enjoyed ours on its own the first night, with no whipped cream. The filling is not too sweet and not too soft (which can be a problem with other pudding pies I’ve tried). Also, the cream cheese makes it a bit firmer, but still melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
- On the second day, I dropped a gigantic dollop of whipped topping on my pudding pie, and that was wonderful too. You can’t go wrong with this dessert! If chocolate is not your thing, try it with vanilla or pistachio pudding!
To make your own crust, stir together 1 1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 c. sugar, and 5 tbsp. melted butter. Press mixture into 9-inch pie pan, and bake at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes. Cool completely before filling.
