Piggy Pie Dessert

I was browsing my Grandma’s old church cookbook and came across this recipe. The name is what drew me to it of course! After reading the ingredients I knew that I had to make it. Chocolate pudding, vanilla pudding, a sweetened cream cheese layer, and the most glorious baked crust that you will ever try. I can see why it was popular so many years ago!

I added heath chips (buttery toffee bits) and mini chocolate chips on top just for fun. You can leave them off if you prefer. I think shaved chocolate would also be a lovely way to decorate the top!

Once you try this recipe you may want to play around with it too. Different flavor puddings can be substituted. You can also use cherry pie filling in place of the vanilla pudding for a really decadent ooey-gooey dessert!

How Does This Dessert Taste?

So good! The crust is probably the most powerful flavor in this dessert, as the puddings are subtle. The first bite was a bit shocking as I expected there to be more of a chocolate flavor, but what I was really tasting was the lovely pecans. If you want this to be a more powerful chocolate flavor you can use 2 boxes of chocolate instead of the chocolate & vanilla. You can also use more chocolate on top and even drizzle with hot fudge.

How to Cut and Serve Piggy Pie Dessert

If you want perfect cuts where you can see all the layers, make sure that this dessert is well chilled before serving. If you care a little less about the presentation you can serve it immediately after making. It will be a glorious ooey-gooey mess, but still delicious.

This dessert should be covered well (as airtight as possible) and stored in the refrigerator. It should last 3-4 days.

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Swiss Miss (already prepared) in the dairy case at the grocery store. Is there any reason I could not substitute that for the boxed instant pudding?

    1. I made this and my family absolutely loved. Shared the recipe with my cousin and she made it for her colleague’s at work and they ALWAYS ask her to make it.
      I see you changed the name. Was it not “Sex In A Pan” first?

  2. I made it,it went smooth till the part that half of cream cheese mixer goes on top of bottom layer, it didn’t cover ,so put the whole thing in and made another for top layer, overall very tasty,thank you

  3. We call this Scrumptious Pie or Mississippi Mud. Yummy by whatever name. Also, we have substituted coconut cream pudding for the chocolate since my sister is allergic. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This recipe was printed on the back of my electric bill 50+ years ago. It was called Republican Pie. I use 1 large and 1 small box of chocolate instant pudding and 4 cups of milk. This makes for a heavier pudding base. Also, toasted coconut sprinkled on top of the final layer of whipped topping is your final layer.

  5. This sounds and looks so yummy. Could I use the cooked type puddings instead of the instant? Just let it cool before adding to the desert. Takes more time, but I think it would give a better overall taste. Thanks

  6. I made this for church fellowship hour today for my 70th birthday. I remember my mother made it and sometimes substituted the puddings with lemon pudding. It is such a light and refreshing dessert.
