Since our Eggnog Pie ( here) was such a success with my picky eater, she decided she was willing to try a chocolate version. Since my youngest daughter has Autism, different textures can be a real issue with her. Both of my girls have never been fans of pudding/jello textures, so I don't ever end up cooking them. But since my youngest surprised me with loving the eggnog recipe we kept going!
Trying new things for someone with Sensory Issues is HUGE! We celebrate change when it is welcomed. Believe it or not, you could make the most kid friendly dessert and if one tiny thing looks "wrong" with it, it ends up being a no-go. Needless to say we end up dumping a lot of new foods we introduce. You just never know when the right moment is going to hit, so you keep trying, over and over again!
I made these into mini-tortes for a change, but you could certainly just make one large pie if you so desire! It has a nice silky chocolate flavor to it. I decided to use the Coconut Nog again since it has such a rich texture and really soft flavor, it is quite versatile.

Chocolate Nog Pudding Pie:
4- 5 (4 1/2 inch) mini torte pans or 1- 9 inch pie pan
Prebaked Pie Crust : In 4 or 5(4 1/2 inch) mini-torte sized or 1- 9 inch pie pan (my recipe here)
3 1/2 Cups So-Delicious Coconut Nog
1/4 Cup Organic Sugar
1/2 Cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
5 TB Cornstarch
pinch of salt
2 TB Butter Substitute (I use Earth Balance-soy free)
*Whipped Coconut Cream for topping (mine here)
In small bowl premix 1/2 cup coconut nog and 1 TB of the cornstarch, set aside.
Over md/high heat in a large saucepan, combine remaining nog, sugar, chocolate chips, cornstarch and pinch of salt. Whisk continuously until a soft boil is formed. Add in the cornstarch mixture and bring back to a soft boil and immediately remove from heat and stir in butter substitute. Pour into prebaked pie shell(s) and refrigerate until set (mine only took a couple hours). Top with whipped cream of choice and enjoy!
