This easy chocolate pudding pie only requires 20 minutes of active time and the rich (but not too rich) filling perfectly complements whipped topping and fresh raspberries. Melted chocolate binds cookie crumbs for the crust—and makes it extra delicious. If you’d rather not include rum, use a teaspoon of vanilla extract instead.
