So Good Chocolate Pudding Pie

This pie is so easy and so good! A fun dessert to take somewhere. It's always gone in seconds! What makes it so yummy is the fudge layer with the buttery graham cracker crust. Mmmm! It's definitely a favorite at our house. And this is not a picture of the actual pie, just a google search of something that looked close enough. :)

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
5 Tbsp butter, melted

Mix, press in pie pan. Bake @ 350 for 6-8 minutes. (Better to make this from scratch and not use a ready-made crust because I think it tastes so much better.)

3 squares semisweet baking chocolate, melted
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

Mix together and melt in microwave for 20 seconds. Stir, melt another 20 seconds, stir. Repeat until melted, being careful not to burn chocolate (usually just takes 2 or 3 times.) Pour fudge mixture into slightly cooled crust.

2 pkgs (4 oz each) instant chocolate pudding
2 cups cold milk
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed

Mix milk and pudding with wire whisk. Spoon over fudge. Spread cool whip on top of pudding. Chill for 3 hours. Serve.
