To die for

This is so good and could not be any easier to make. I have made this three times now and each time it has been a huge hit. I make Extra whip cream so there is more left over to top the pie.

Really good!

This pie is delicious! I made it to take to a 4-H cooking judging and the judge loved it! I always make a little bit extra whipped cream and then have that to garnish the top with or something like that. Just don't take too big of a piece - it's REALLY rich!

The procedures weren't as complicated as the recipe makes it sound with the "Challenging" label. However, the only thing keeping this from being a 5 star review is that it was a little too chocolatey for my tastes. However, a bit less cocoa could make it better.

Really easy to make and my family loved it! I added some toffee chips and instead of melted chocolate swirls on top I put caramel.

I loved it! I bought a chocolate cookie crust instead of making my own and followed the rest of the directions. It turned out perfectly

This Chocolate Pie is pure indulgence. Super creamy, and not as sweet as I thought it would be. It's definitley a keeper.

I love chocolate pie, but for Valentine's I used Raspberry flavored morsels instead of the semi-sweet & it was wonderful....5-stars
