I don't know what I did wrong, but I couldn't cut a cute slice to take a photo. I think the pudding wasn't thick enough. I'm not so good when it's time to thicken something. The crust and the pudding is very good. The only thing I would change would be to reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. Cause it's a little bit too sweet. I used a dark cocoa powder. Thanks Lori :) Made for Holiday tag

How could I resist trying this -- the crispy crust sounded so good, and it was! The entire pie was eaten in 1 day, so you know we liked it. The crust is very good, like a chocolate Rice Krispies treat, and we enjoyed the filling. I think I will add cold milk in place of the 1/2 cup cold water when I make it again, just to make it creamier, but we also enjoyed it just as written. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe!

This is fabulous!! I was concerned it would not be sweet/rich enough being made with water rather than milk; but with the combo of the crust and the pudding with a little whipped cream on top, it was perfect!! DH is NOT a pie eater and when I make choco pudding pie with regular pie crust he usually doesn't eat it...well this he is devouring! Loves the crust! Will be making again for sure!!
