A S'mores Pudding Pie topped with whipped cream and chocolate chips.

Everyday at school my son gets a lunch to take home since he only goes to school half day.  Some days he brings home white milk which he drinks right away and other days he brings home chocolate milk.  The issue with the chocolate milk is no one in our house drinks it.

Since I don’t like to waste food I’ve been looking for ways we can use the chocolate milk in cooking or baking.  Recently I saw a recipe for a No Bake Chocolate Milk Pie and figured I could work with that but turn it into something more exciting.

After looking at my baking supplies I decided on a No Bake S’mores Pudding Pie.   I figured I could use the chocolate milk pudding recipe and then give the rest of the pie my own unique spin. 

Ingredients:

  • graham cracker crust
  • chocolate milk
  • sugar
  • cinnamon
  • cornstarch
  • vanilla
  • marshmallows
  • whipped cream

To make the pudding mix the cornstarch with a half cup of chocolate milk and mix until smooth.

In a saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, cinnamon stick, and remaining chocolate milk.  Bring to a simmer and stir constantly for 5 minutes.

Stir the cornstarch mixture together again and slowly pour it into the simmering chocolate milk, whisking constantly. 

Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, and add in the vanilla. 

Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 3-5 more minutes.

Remove the cinnamon stick from the mixture and pour the pudding into the pie crust.  Allow to cool 5 minutes.

Add in the marshmallows and stir gently to combine. Allow the pudding to cool for 30 minutes then place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Decorate the top with whipped cream, chocolate chips, and graham cracker crumbs.

The most time consuming part of making this dessert is making the pudding.   I love that because I used chocolate milk I didn’t have to add any additional chocolate.

I also wasn’t sure how the pudding would taste but it set up well, was thick, and had a rich, chocolate flavor.   Mixed with the mini marshmallows it totally tasted like s’mores.

Do I have to use chocolate milk?

It’s best to use the chocolate milk to give the pudding the correct flavor and texture.  However, you could use white milk and add in 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder instead. 

Can I use a regular pie crust?

Of course you can but then you won’t really get the s’mores flavor.   If you choose to use a regular pie crust make sure to bake it and let it cool before filling it.  Also, top the pie with graham cracker crumbs to give it the s’mores flavor.

What do I do if my pudding has lumps in it?

Strain it through a fine mesh strainer to get any lumps out.  It’s easiest to do this when the pudding is hot because it is thinner at that point.

Can I just make this as a regular chocolate pudding pie?

Yes!  You can keep the graham cracker crust or put it in a regular pie crust.  Just omit the marshmallows from the recipe and when decorating the top I would use whipped cream, chocolate chips, and a cinnamon sprinkle instead of the graham cracker crumb sprinkle.

You can decorate the top of the pie any way you like or just leave it as is.  Serve it with a scoop of ice cream or along with a cookie.

I chose to decorate the top of mine with dollops of whipped cream topped with chocolate chips.  Then I sprinkled the top with graham cracker crumbs and a touch of cinnamon.

I thought it looked really great and it tasted good!  This would be a great dessert for kids or adults.  It’s easy to make, keeps for a few days in the refrigerator, and tastes like a s’mores in a pan.

  1. Pudding pies are so fun and so easy! Not to mention homemade pudding is always better than box. Especially with that hint of cinnamon in there.

  2. I’m excited to try this, I love that it’s homemade pudding, and that you put a cinnamon stick in too! And made with chocolate milk, brilliant!
