Creamy Chocolate Pudding in a Crumb Crust

This is a simple, comfort food dessert. Creamy chocolate pudding nestled in a crisp and crumbly crust. Eat with a spoon curled up in a chair and it is as comforting as a hug. This recipe uses our Easy One Pot Chocolate Pudding poured into a crumb crust.

We had intended to use a chocolate cookie crust but ran out of our favorite Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafersand had to use part graham crackers. We actually loved the result. Not only for the visual contrast, which you can see in the image, but also for the way the earthy graham crackers set off the creamy chocolate filling flavor-wise. Above you can see the pudding pie unadorned. Read Tips for Handling Crumb Crusts for a tutorial. Note that this crust is chilled and not baked. No need to turn on oven. Also take care when whipping the cream for the topping; you want it to be silky smooth.
