I made it using unsweetened almond milk and it was terrific!
Rather than buy cornstarch, chocolate chips & cocoa powder, and divide 3 eggs, can I use Jell-o Pudding Mix…..the no-cook or the cook in 5 minutes kind? Which would be best?
Do you think this can be made with almond milk v. cow’s milk?
Hi, Njborden! That’s a good question. We didn’t test it with almond milk so we can’t say for sure how it would turn out. If you try it, please let us know.
Anyway you can do this stovetop? I don’t own a microwave, yet I am an avid cook! Love this site, been reading it for years and years now. Never disappoints!
Hi, Kristen! Thanks for loving this site. We love that we have such a strong cooking community here at Simply Recipes. Yes, you can make this on the stovetop. Just keep stirring and make sure you get into the corners of your pan. I would start over medium low heat, then move up to medium toward the end if it hasn’t already thickened.
Can you freeze the chocolate cream pie?
Hi Bev, The short answer is no. :) The pie filling loses a lot in the freezer–it could become a little watery when it is defrosted. The good news is that it does keep for a few days in the fridge, and if you want to get a head start, you can make and freeze the crust, and then just add the filling once the crust has defrosted.
This pie is delicious and easy to make. HOWEVER, listing the “prep time” at 5 minutes is utterly absurd! I defy ANYONE, including the author of the recipe, to gather, measure, and combine 14 ingredients in 5 minutes or anywhere close to that! I almost never pay attention to timing estimates in recipes, because they are almost always grossly underestimated. But this one takes the cake (pie?) for ridiculousness!
Hi, Norma! HA! Point taken! Let’s call it 10 minutes to gather ingredients and measure them out in a bowl. Seem more reasonable?!
Did I really say that? I apologize–you are totally right! It probably takes 10 to 12 minutes to assemble everything if you are not distracted, which I almost always am. It’s still the fastest pie ever if you already have a crust….
Thanks for pointing it out! Sally
There’s no longer a reason to break open a box! I was shocked at how easy this pie came together. It was delicious.
The kids will love this recipe!
I think I’ll use Jello instant pudding & save time & effort.
Save time and effort, lose quality, nutrition, and awesomeness. There really is no comparison.
You’re worth the effort. It really isn’t much more work than going to the store and making it from a box.
