Quick and Easy Chocolate Pie from Reddi-wip®
Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 6 ¼ hours
- 1 12 oz can evaporated milk
- 1 5.9 oz package chocolate instant pudding mix
- ½ cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate morsels, optional
- 1 7 oz can Reddi-wip® Original Dairy Whipped Topping
- 1 9-inch graham cracker pie crust
- Additional Reddi-wip® Original Dairy Whipped Topping, crushed candy or mixed berries, optional
Pour milk into a medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix and beat with a wire whisk until blended and mixture just begins to thicken. Stir in chocolate morsels, if desired.
Add the contents of Reddi-wip can; stir gently but quickly until blended. Pour into crust and cover.
Refrigerate for 6 hours or until pie is set. Cut into 8 slices to serve. Garnish with additional Reddi-wip, crushed candy and berries, if desired.
Tip: If you’re a Rocky Road fan, omit the candy garnish and instead stir in ½ cup miniature marshmallows and ¼ cup coarsely chopped peanuts to the pudding mixture before pouring it into the pie shell. Continue as directed.
