Dark chocolate and creamy pudding make a decadent filling for Pet-Ritz® frozen pie crust--a quick way to a fabulous dessert!
Pillsbury™ Pet-Ritz® frozen deep dish pie crust (from 12-oz package)
box (6-serving size) chocolate pudding and pie filling mix (not instant)
cups dark chocolate chips
cup frozen (thawed) whipped topping
Chocolate curls, if desired
Heat oven to 400°F. Bake pie crust as directed on package for one-crust baked pie shell. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, cook milk and pudding mix over medium heat 5 to 8 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add chocolate chips; stir until melted and smooth. Pour into medium bowl; cover surface of pudding with plastic wrap. Refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours or until cold.
Spoon and spread evenly in cooled crust. Refrigerate at least 4 hours until set. Top each serving with whipped topping; garnish with chocolate curls. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.
If you like lighter chocolate, you can substitute semisweet chocolate chips for the dark chocolate chips.
Serve with fresh raspberries or strawberries for a color and flavor contrast.
