Only Easy: Chocolate Pretzel Pie

Gosh, I take horrible pictures. This is a yummy dessert though, promise! It’s the perfect mix of salty and sweet. It also happens to be the easiest version of chocolate pretzel pie I can think of. Of course you can make your pudding from scratch and top it with freshly made whipped cream. At our house though, this Jell-O and Cool Whip version happens more often.

Chocolate Pudding Pretzel Pie


2 C. crushed pretzels
¾ C. butter, melted (I use salted)
2 small boxes (3.9 oz.) Jell-O (cook and serve or instant) chocolate pudding
3 ½ – 4 C. whole milk
1 (8-12 oz.) Cool Whip


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Crush pretzels in a zip top bag.
  3. Add melted butter and crushed pretzels to a 9” x 13” pan and pat down to make a crust. Don’t dirty an extra bowl for this step, mix directly in the 9 x 13 pan.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
  5. Whisk milk and pudding mix until its smooth. Store in refrigerator while crust completely cools.
  6. After pretzel crust has cooled, add pudding to the pretzel layer.
  7. Top pudding with Cool Whip.

That’s it, only easy!
