You won’t believe how easy these chocolate pudding pie jars are to make! With a buttery graham cracker crust, a smooth, rich, and intensely chocolate-y homemade pudding, and a crown of fluffy real whipped cream, you’ll never go back to store-bought after tasting this from-scratch recipe!

  • chocolate curls for garnish*
