Easiest Boston Cream Pie

A quick sweet treat to have your friends foaming at the mouth for another bite… but you don’t have to share this easy recipe if you don’t want to, just keep them coming back for more and keep the secret ingredients to yourself.


It’s more than just a great way to keep them coming back. It’s a great excuse to visit friends. I have a gay friend who, for the life of him, cannot stay on his diet, especially when I bring even a whiff of this easy-peasy Boston Cream Pie around him. Normally, people would discourage me from ruining a poor man’s attempt at a simple diet. But his boyfriend and roommates are far from complaining as long as I share a slice or two with them!

I would go so far as to say to bookmark this recipe to give a lover on St. Valentine’s day. They always say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! Did you know St. Valentine’s day came from a fertility festival in Roman times? They would slap women and crops with goat hides for luck with fertility.

Or did you know that in “an effort to ‘Christianize’ the pagan celebration of Lupercalia,” the holiday was taken over by the Christian church and didn’t really become associated with love until the Medieval times because of it’s connection to the birds mating season? It’s made one heck of a leap. From mating and fertility to chocolates and cards.

This is also a great crying sweet. Some people, myself included, have a way with finding men or women who hurt me right in the chest. Studies show that over 50% of people admit “that they tend to use food (especially junk food)” in cases of severe emotional distress.

In some cases, it’s the way to his heart, and some it’s the chocolate that welds yours back together. I can attest that this recipe is great for cheering up. The chocolate isn’t overly weak and the crust adds just the right melty crunch.

The subtle taste of the cream filling is tasty, but not painfully sweet for those with an affinity for a more calming palate of flavor like some traditional Italian pastries but with the added POW of sweet chocolate use sugar-crazed Americans love.

So what’s this miraculous Boston Cream Pie recipe?

You will need:
2 vanilla pudding packs, Jello brand (1 large is fine, but I always use 2 smaller packs)
1 box honey graham crackers
1 medium cool whip
1 can milk chocolate icing

Here it is:

  • Any brand of honey graham crackers placed evenly in the bottom of a pan, preferably 5X10, a nice rectangle shape of some sort. I prefer glass, Pyrex, but plastic is fine too.
  • Then 1 thing of vanilla pudding (prepared) and mixed with 1 thing of whipped cream on the layer above the honey graham crackers.
  • Another layer of honey graham crackers on top of the pudding.
  • Microwave a thing of milk chocolate icing (I prefer to use Betty Crocker) for 15 seconds so it becomes soft and pours on smooth to the top layer of honey graham crackers. Do not overheat because it will become soupy and will not solidify correctly. It can become come hard and taste burnt if overheated.
  • Next chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours. I generally leave it overnight.

    To make the pudding follow box directions then add cool whip.

    Jello recipe is as follows:

  • Pour 2 cups of cold milk into a medium bowl.
  • Add Mix.
  • Beat with a wire whisk or electric mixer for 2 minutes; then or immediately into dessert dishes.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    The best part about this recipe is that it is so quick, simple, and cheap. Depending on where you shop this recipe shouldn’t even cost you $10!

    Don’t feel bad about eating a single slice; eat a whole pan and enjoy it. Body positivity and your happiness are more important than guilt over a super sweet slice of pie.

    Fun fact, Birds eat approximately 25-50% of their body weight every day. So go for it! Eat like a bird.
