I made this pie two different times. The first time, I followed the directions exactly. It didn't set up very well, and didn't make a very nice presentation. When I made it a second time, while the pudding was still hot I added chocolate chips. I stirred until melted. The pie turned out awesome. This is a very easy to follow recipe. My family enjoyed this.
My mom used to make this same pie! In her version, she used 2 pkgs (4 serving-size) of chocolate pudding & 3 cups milk. She also changed it up by using a graham crust or chocolate graham crust. Simple, classic, good!
