Very Fudgy

I tried this on Sunday and within the hour of serving it, it was gone. I will make again and again. Everyone wondered why I did not make two! Next time I will know to do that.

Try some variations!

An easy recipe that produces a fudgey result. Also try it using espresso dark chocolate, and hazelnuts in place of walnuts.

Awesome Pie

I was looking for a chocolate pie base and this was it. I omitted the nuts and added a teaspoon of coffee granules. Perfect with coffee ice cream.

My husband's favorite combo is chocolate & peanut butter, so I added a cup of peanut butter chips with the walnuts. GREAT!! Definitely will make over & over again

I tried this recipe for my chocolate loving husband. I got rave reviews from him and other familiy members. This recipe takes little time to mix up and when it bakes the kitchen smells wonderful. I did use pecans instead of the walnuts with the same results. This pie also travels well for a pot luck dinner. One is never enough I have to make two each time.

Very Good

I guess my age will show, but my favorite Chocolate pie is the old Cocoa pie; however, this is a very good 2nd choice. Also, my family prefers this one, they think the old Cocoa pie is not sweet enough. So this is their favorite.

I made this for Thanksgiving as not everyone likes pumpkin pie. It was very fudgy and everyone loved it, especially the kids. It was also simple to make.
