ISO oreo/chocolate pie info

i'm making a pie. the crust is smushed oreo/butter or a purchased crust. the filling is so far gonna be comprised of cooked chocolate pudding. then i was gonna whip some cream/sugar/vanilla before slicing the pie for a topper. shaved chocolate for a garnish.
although-
i would love incorporating a ganache. is that too much chocolate? i'd pour the ganache into the shell before the pudding.
also, would my pie get soggy if i poured my pudding in tonite? or should i wait until after easter dinner.
thanx!

If you're refrigerating then the pudding will not sog out the crust too badly. I like the idea of a ganache on the bottom, that would be tasty. I've done something similar but put a peanut butter thing on the bottom. KILLER GOOD! I'll give you the particulars if you are interested.

Here is the link to crewsk's recipe. Its a HUGE hit in our house. I used cooked pudding though, not instant. I do whipped cream topping and chocolate curls.
