Quick and easy no-cook chocolate lover's desert.
Place 1/4 cup pecans in food processor. Using "Pulse" method grind into small granules. Prepare pudding mix as per package instructions. Stir remaining 1/2 cup chopped pecans into pudding mix and pour into pie crust. Sprinkle granulated pecans. Place in refrigerator and chill for one hour. Pie will set up ready to eat in 5 minutes. I prefer to chill it a little longer.
Serving suggestion: Place pie in refrigerator without pecan granule dusting. Before serving top each portion with whip cream and then sprinkle the pecans granules.
Notes: You can add another cup of milk and make two full packages of pudding. Pour the remaining half cup in a small container and serve as a pudding dessert later. The use of a chocolate pie crust is not necessary but adds a double treat for real chocolate lovers.
