UYC’s Kitchen: The Easiest Chocolate Pie, Ever

A dinner party is simply not a dinner party without dessert, am I right?  For those occasions when you don’t have the time commitment for a proper “from scratch” sweet, but you want something a little more homey than, say, cupcakes from Baked By Melissa, I present my go-to: the easiest chocolate pie, ever.  Promise.



Following this recipe, it’s impossible to screw anything up even if you are an absolute mess beginner in the kitchen.  But remember, just because it’s super simple doesn’t mean it doesn’t win big points when it comes to taste.  If you hide the pudding box deep enough in the garbage, you could even deceive your guests into thinking that they were, in fact, worthy of a BIG project.  Just saying.

To give it that little something extra, I used a fraction of a bar of my favorite salted organic dark chocolate, Salazon.  Everyone loves the sea salt thing these days, especially when paired with chocolate, so I grated chocolate sprinkles on top of the pie.  Looks pretty, tastes delightful!  And because I’m a “waste not, want not” kinda gal, I ate the remainder of the bar as a pre-dinner snack.

The verdict?  Happy guests, happy hostess!

  1. You are too cute with your picture-perfect confections up top! Can I just say that 3 of the 5 ingredients remind me of my childhood?

    Yum. I don’t care where you reside–if you show up with the chocolate dessert, you will be the belle of the ball. Gotta try Fiona’s apple, buttery decadence, too ;)

    Looks great! I usually do the same with coconut cream pie and sprinkle toasted coconut on top. Love your way of not wasting the chocolate ;)

  3. LOL it looks good! I have to say my go-to pud is sliced apples sauted in a little butter and then with a measure of cognac or armenac added

    Slightly easier: Cool Whip and flavored yogurt pie. Less than 10 minutes to prepare and then let it chill.
