This pie has a delicious flavor, but it is entirely too sweet for my liking. It was so rich it made my tongue tingle after a few bites. My children loved it.

Awesome Pie!

I made this pie for our Potluck group. Everyone loved it. Truly a delicious and easy to make pie. I did top each piece with whipped cream and then put the cherry on top.

So easy!

At Christmas time, my family wanted a chocolate pie and a cherry pie, so I thought I would compromise and find a recipe that was for both. This pie was easy to make and so delicious! Everyone loved it and they ask for it often!

This is a crowd pleaser! Very rich and oh, so good. I did try to "lighten it up" using fat free sweetened condensed milk. It tasted good but the filling did not stand up like it does using regular sweetened condensed milk. I did use a reduced fat graham cracker crust though.

Could not be easier!

I used a chocolate crumb crust. My whole family loves chocolate covered cherries so everyone gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up!

Easy Treat

This a great dessert because it's so easy to put together yet tastes so good. Served it to friends and they all loved it although we noted a small slice goes a long way-which is probably for the best anyway.

Heavenly taste!

This recipe was so easy to make...and it tasted like a slice of Heaven! It's a family favorite now.
