I’ve had a lot of ho-hum chocolate cream pies in my time, I don’t know about you. This easy recipe redeems them all. An Oreo or Graham cracker crust, a rich and creamy double chocolate pudding, topped with sweetened whipped cream and chocolate curls. This is The One. The only chocolate pie you will ever need, forever and ever amen! It has the PERFECT texture thanks to a special technique you may not have used before.

I spent all of Friday making Chocolate Cream Pies, trying to figure out the combination of flavor and texture that would bring me to Creamy-Chocolate-Level-Transcendent. I made so many pies: some too grainy, some too thick, some too fussy to be labeled “easy.” I finally nailed it.
