Chocolate Pudding Pie




10 Tips to keep in mind when cooking Chocolate Pudding Pie

  1. Use high-quality cocoa powder for the best chocolate flavor.
  2. Whisk continuously while cooking the pudding to prevent lumps and ensure a smooth texture.
  3. Gradually add the milk to the dry ingredients to avoid clumping.
  4. Be patient while cooking the pudding; it thickens as it comes to a boil.
  5. Remove the pudding from heat as soon as it thickens to avoid overcooking.
  6. Press plastic wrap directly onto the pudding's surface to prevent a skin from forming.
  7. Let the pie chill for at least 4 hours to fully set.
  8. For a richer flavor, use whole milk instead of low-fat or skim milk.
  9. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings just before serving for the best presentation.
  10. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, covered, to keep the pie fresh.
