Chocolate Icebox Pie ~ One of Our Family Favorites

Chocolate Icebox Pie is a recipe that I received as a young bride. I cannot remember now for sure who gave it to me, but it went over quite well. It's quite easy to make and lends itself well to variations. 



3/4 c    butter
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c    chopped pecans
8 oz     cream cheese
12 oz   Cool Whip
1 lg     Jello brand chocolate instant pudding (or chocolate fudge)

pecans or shaved chocolate for sprinkling on top

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Melt 3/4 c of butter and put in 13 x 9 baking dish.
  • Add 1 1/2 c flour and 1/2 c chopped pecans.
  • Mix well and spread across bottom of dish.
  • Bake 20 minutes at 350°.
  • Allow to cool completely.
  • Beat 8 oz softened cream cheese with 1 c powdered sugar until creamy.
  • Fold in 1 c Cool Whip and spread over crust.
  • Refrigerate while mixing the third layer.
  • Mix one large or two small boxes of chocolate instant pudding with 3 cups milk. Mix until thickened.
  • Pour over second layer.
  • After pudding has set completely, put remaining Cool Whip on top. 
  • Garnish with chopped pecans or grated chocolate.
  • Refrigerate at least an hour.
