This is so good and so easy to make. I have also made it with butterscotch and the butterscotch chips.


  1. Combine the pudding and chocolate chips in a saucepan.
  2. Heat over low heat until melted, stirring constantly, set aside.
  3. Blend the cream cheese and the whipped topping in a mixing bowl.
  4. Spread in a pie shell.
  5. Top with the chocolate mixture.
  6. Chill for 2 hours.

I don't know what to say!!! This pie is absolutely delicious AND the easiest to throw together!The mere fact that you use the pudding packs for the basis makes this totally unique and, you have to admit, a real conversation starter!We used Jello brand refrigerated pudding packs and it was wonderful! Kim, if you "invented' this, well, kudos to you!!!

Kim, what can I say? WOW!!! This is absolutely delicious! I made it for my husband's family. They always talk about their late grandmother's chocolate pie and how no one can duplicate it. They said this is a perfect match! I know she didn't use snack pack pudding, because they didn't have it in her day, but they flavor and texture matches hers. I had to give out three copies of the recipe that day. Thanks for bringing back some memories!

OMG!!! I made this pie for Thanksgiving, but it didn't make it to the table. My husband saw it in the fridge and since I had made so many pies, he thought we should try this one the night before. Let me say, not only was it easy to make, but it was easy to eat. All I could hear were the forks scraping the plates and my kids were literally licking their plates clean. The cream cheese mixture with chocolate is one of the best chocolate pies we've ever had. I will be making this recipe again. Thanks!!!
