Fudge Pie and Chocolate Pudding

During my research for this series, I ran across this delicious looking no bake fudge pie. Being a chocolate lover, I had to throw it in. It's very similar to a chocolate pudding recipe that I've made so it makes me think that that could easily go into a pie shell as well. I'm including that recipe as well as another chocolate pudding recipe without tofu.
