You guys.

How cute are these little pies?! Oh my gosh, Elle and I had so much fun making them.

Have you seen JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD gelatin & pudding mixes? I’m really digging that they’re made using no artificial flavors, dyes or preservatives! And there are 8 different flavors to choose from.

I’d be lying if I said I’m not crushing hard on the JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD Pineapple Orange. It is a pineapple-loving girl’s dream come true in gelatin form.

While you can still get all your favorite JELL-O boxes, these JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD gelatin & pudding mixes come in pouches. They’re found in the same part of the grocery store, right next to JELL-O boxes.

You’ll probably find this funny, but we’re not dessert-every-night eaters. That may seem strange for a baking blogger, but it’s true. We do have something sweet after dinner most nights though; it’s fresh fruit or pudding for Elle and me, cereal for Eric.

Sometimes though, it’s fun to take your routine up a notch, especially with Valentine’s Day looming on the horizon, and that’s where these Easy Chocolate Pudding Pies come in.

I picked up a set of those premade mini graham cracker crusts at the grocery store on a whim, and some fresh strawberries. Then I was wandering past an endcap, just loaded with festive Valentine’s Day sprinkles.

You know I wasn’t walking past that without loading up the cart, right?

Chocolate and strawberry are the ultimate pairing when it comes to Valentine’s Day flavors, so I decided to fill the mini crusts with dollops of rich, luscious JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD Chocolate Pudding.

But there are more flavors to choose from – Vanilla Bean, Banana, and whoa baby – Chocolate Caramel too. So use the pouch that floats your boat, because any of them would be magical in this recipe.

Elle and I both put on our aprons, and each grabbed a whisk. It was pretty much the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. I love recipes like this, because it’s just so easy, Elle can basically do it herself from start to finish, and she feels so proud.

Literally open the pudding mix, pour it into a bowl, add 2 cups of cold milk, and whisk away for two minutes. Five minutes later, your pudding is soft set, and ready for its show-stopping addition to graham cracker pie crusts.

I cut strawberry slices while Elle whisked, and when the pudding was set, we worked together to top each newly-made pie. A little whipped cream (okay, a lot of whipped cream) and some festive sprinkles, and boom. Dessert is served.

You should have seen the look on my sweet girl’s face at our finished product. I can’t believe she’s officially three!

    Pudding pie is always a hit at our house. I will be on the lookout for Jell-O Simply Good and you have the cutest helper I’ve ever seen!

    Yum! i think i need to make another pie.


    • Jamie — February 2, 2017 at 12:37 pm

      Let me know how you like it!

    I love all your recipes and I’m going to make this one this weekend. My comment is about printing the recipe.  I prefer to print the recipe and have it on hand instead of looking through a website.  I am using a Apple IPad Air 2 to view your recipes. When I click on the Print Recipe link the picture in the right hand corner disappears, so I end of printing without a pic reference of what the dessert should look like.  Usually I screen shot another pic of the dessert to also print, but wonder if your IT person could program to allow the small pic of dessert to print as shown?


    • Jamie — February 5, 2017 at 4:56 pm

      I will definitely look into it, Laurie! I hope you enjoy the pudding pies!

  4. Maria — February 2, 2017 at 7:18 pm

    I’m in charge of dessert for book club this month and these would be perfect! Since the club runs during the week, I can easily put them together and look like a superstar! Thanks. 


    • Jamie — February 3, 2017 at 10:51 am

      You’re welcome, Maria! I hope everyone enjoys them!

    I’ve never tried this kind of thing but looks fun with the kids so think i’ll give it a go. Do you think it would be easy enough for a 10yo to do by herself? She’s not so keen on baking with mummy these days, little miss independent!


    • Jamie — February 3, 2017 at 10:52 am

      Hi, Abi! I think she’d be great at it! Let me know how it goes!

    So the Jell-o Simply Good is the same as the box pudding mix only in a pouch? I had fingers crossed for ready-made pudding (since I’m the only one who likes pudding in this house–what’s wrong with people??)


    • Jamie — February 5, 2017 at 5:00 pm

      Hi, Theresa! The pouch contains natural flavors with no preservatives. I really enjoy it! Let me know if you give it a try!

  7. Mary — February 4, 2017 at 1:47 pm

    Do you have to use the pudding pouches or could you use regular instant pudding? 


    • Jamie — February 5, 2017 at 4:54 pm

      Hi, Mary! You can use regular instant pudding if you like. I hope you enjoy them!

  8. Ashley — February 4, 2017 at 5:27 pm

    Do these need to be kept refrigerated? I am thinking of making them for my coworkers for Valentine’s Day gifts and would need to make them the night before they’re eaten. 


    • Jamie — February 5, 2017 at 4:54 pm

      Hi, Ashley! I would keep these refrigerated just to be safe. I hope your coworkers enjoy them!

  9. Sharon — February 5, 2017 at 8:12 am

    They look lovely. What do you use for the whipped cream topping? Is it homemade, from a packaged mix, from a can and how did you get those pretty swirls?


    • Jamie — February 5, 2017 at 4:52 pm

      Hi, Sharon! You can use homemade whipped cream or whipped cream from a can, which usually has the tip to make the swirls. I hope you enjoy them!

  10. Cassandra — February 5, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    Can you tell me if these are the 3″ or 5″? I’ll need to order them online and not sure which to grab.

    And I really, really want to try them!! :) (they look really good)


    • Jamie — February 6, 2017 at 4:46 pm

      Hi, Cassandra! I believe these were the 5″, but the 3″ will word as well. I hope you enjoy them!

  11. Virginia Beach — February 8, 2017 at 12:08 pm

    What is the difference In using the jello box then because u still add
    Milk and it’s done just as quick ? 


    • Jamie — February 8, 2017 at 12:31 pm

      These JELL-O Simply Good pouches have no dyes, preservatives, or artificial flavors. I highly recommend them!

  12. Jeana — February 14, 2017 at 12:34 am

    What store did you find the mini crusts at? I can’t find them anywhere


    • Jamie — February 14, 2017 at 4:03 pm

      Hi, Jeana! Try Walmart or Amazon. I hope you enjoy them!

  13. Barbara Schneider — February 15, 2017 at 8:31 pm

    We love your pudding with no artificial colors or dyes! Strawberries and real whipped cream! Now I need to find natural sprinkles for the top!


    • Jamie — February 16, 2017 at 7:21 am

      I hope you enjoy them, Barbara!

  14. Karri — February 20, 2017 at 8:07 pm

    Looking forward to making these little treats. The graham crackers crusts are located in the baking aisle. Thought they might be in the frozen food area…nope. 


    • Jamie — February 21, 2017 at 7:45 am

      I hope you enjoy them, Karri!

  15. Sylvia — February 28, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    Were do you find the gram cracker lil pie crust or do you make them


    • Jamie — February 28, 2017 at 2:50 pm

      I found them at Target, but most grocery stores carry them in the baking aisle. Have a great day.

  16. Teresa — March 1, 2017 at 7:00 am

    I never use instant pudding in pie anymore. I have tried it and it gets watery and soggy. Cooked pudding is the best for pies.


  17. Shanna — May 22, 2017 at 1:01 pm

    Hello, does the Simply Good version of kraft pudding set up well enough to make this into a full size pie? If not, do you know any modifications to try so I can make it full size?


    • Jamie — May 26, 2017 at 9:45 am

      It set like regular pudding for me, so I think you should be fine! Thanks for stopping by!
