Childhood meet adulthood. Adulthood, meet childhood.
This Chocolate Chai Pudding Pie w/ Parle-G Crust literally gives me all the feels!
When I was a kid, I used to dip my Parle-G cookies into a piping hot cup of fresh masala chai.
When the chai was that hot the cookie would just fall apart into the tea and when I was done drinking it there would be a cookie surprise at the bottom of each cup.
Parle-G cookies have an iconic yellow wrapper with a little girl on the cover and are known as India’s “gluco-cookies,” which is just a fancy way to slightly sweet cookie.
The cookies remind me of graham crackers and are awesome for dunking into tea or milk.
I wanted to fuse my love for the cookies and tea with my forever love for chocolate.
When I was kid I never really liked chocolate pudding. It was a textural thing for me, but as I have gotten older my body takes chocolate in ANYWAY it can!
This was my first go around at making the pie, so the chocolate to whip cream ratio was a little off, but honestly, it really didn’t make a difference.
The chai REALLY comes through in this recipe, so when your fork hits the pie, you get an amazing combo of chai, chocolate, crunchy crust and of course, cinnamon whipped cream.
If you’re a total chocoholic I would recommend maybe using half the amount of whipped cream in this recipe.
This pie is great as a dessert for when you have guests over, or just good to have in the fridge for when that sweet tooth craving kicks in. J killed this pie in less than a week if that’s telling you something!
Hope you enjoy!
