Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake


Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake

I made Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake last week when I was having a massive dilemma..


I was craving chocolate pudding, and cheesecake, but wanted something that didn't take hours to make like traditional cheesecake. So I finally decided on Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake, since one of the most requested desserts in our house is Banana Pudding Cheesecake. I figured it would be equally as delish, and I was right. The cream cheese adds a certain richness without being overly sweet which I love, and the family does too.


I made the Chocolate Pudding from scratch because that's usually what I do, and it really doesn't save that much time using a chocolate pudding box. Plus I like a pretty prominent chocolate flavor that can only be achieved with a scratch pudding.


It ended up tasting like magic in a pie plate rich, creamy, smooth, with the best chocolate pudding meets no bake cheesecake. If you're a serious chocolate lover it will probably leave you a little weak in the knees.


Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake Pie Crust
First off you will need one 9" Baked Pie Crust. I used my Flaky Pie Crust recipe, but Sour Cream Pie Crust, Gluten Free Pie Crust, Graham Cracker Pie Crust used in Banana Pudding Cheesecake or even this Oreo Cookie Crust used in Peanut Butter Fudge Pie would be good.Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake mix sugar, flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
In a medium sized saucepan add 1 cup Granulated Sugar, 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour, 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, and 1/4 teaspoon Salt.Chocolate Pudding Coca Powder whisk together.
Whisk together until well combined.
Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake whisk egg yolks.
Separate 3 Egg Yolks, and whisk yolks until well combined.
Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake whisk in milk.
Whisk 2 3/4 cup Whole Milk into egg yolks, and whisk, until well combined.


Note: I have just recently started making pudding this way, and find it even easier than tempering the eggs which I had traditionally done, after a reader had suggested it.
Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake whisk milk into dry ingredients.
Slowly pour the milk mixture into dry ingredients, while whisking to prevent lumps.
Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake bring to a simmer.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat while whisking making sure to consistently scrape sides, and bottom of pan to prevent scorching.
Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake cook until thick.
Cook until chocolate pudding is thick, and holds stir lines. It's important to cook pudding mixture long enough for a cuttable pie that holds shape. Stir in 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract.Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake beat cream cheese.
Beat 16 ounces Room Temperature Cream Cheese until light, fluffy, and smooth. Scrape sides of bowl, and beaters often to prevent lumps. Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake mix pudding into cream cheese.
Mix warm Chocolate Pudding into Cream Cheese.
Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake beat until creamy.
Scrape sides of bowl, and beater. Continue to beat until smooth, and well combined. Pour Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake into baked pie shell.
Pour Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake into Baked Pie Shell, and refrigerate, until cold, or overnight.
Chocolate Pudding Cheesecake garnished with whip cream and chocolate shavings.
Serve pie with Sweetened Whip Cream, and garnish with Chocolate Curls, by using a vegetable peeler along the edge of a chocolate bar. As demonstrated in the Tiramisu Angel Food Cake.


I strongly suggest hiding a piece after it's cut, because it disappears in the blink of an eye!

  2. This looks delicious! I love all your pudding pies. I could see making this one into a banana chocolate pie by adding banana slices to the bottom. Or, making a s'mores pie by adding marshmallows. Oh, the possibilities. Especially when you start with something as yummy as this.
