    How to Make an Easy Chocolate Pie

    Life is complicated enough. Why do we have to make it harder? This chocolate pie filling requires boiling cream and pouring it over chocolate. Pour it into the pretzel crust, refrigerate and it’s ready to enjoy in just a few hours.

    In case you don’t plan on eating the whole pie in one night like we’ve been known to do at family gatherings, and parties you’ll need to refrigerate the pie after serving. Keep the chocolate pie chilled in the refrigerator, cover the pie dish with plastic wrap or a lid, and it will last for 3-4 days.

    Is The Pretzel Crust Worth The Hype?

    If you’re a big fan of the sweet and salty combo, which why wouldn’t you be, then yes it is definitely worth the hype! First off, it’s way easier to make than a regular homemade crust, making it perfect for a time crunch situation.

    Speaking of crunch, the pretzels add a crunch factor that pairs amazingly with the soft creamy texture of the chocolate filling. Bring this combo to any party and you’ll be the talk of the dessert table with this game-changing crust.

    With that being said, I understand if you still aren’t feeling the pretzel crust. Of course, you can always swap it out for something else. Looking for another time saver? I love prepackaged graham cracker crusts. You really can’t go wrong.
