This was a very good pie. However, this is a very sweet, dark chocoate pie. Not a creamy, milk chocolate flavor. I like the milk chocolate flavor better, as do most people I know. This is great if you are a dark, bitter-sweet chocolate lover. I probably won't make this again for myself or my husband (will just use pie filling for a creamier chocolate). However, my mother-in-law loved it. She likes the dark chocoate and said it tasted just like her mother used to make.
I was disappointed in this pie. Mine came out too bitter, and had the taste and texture of fudge, not a cream pie. Sorry, but will not try again.
This recipe was very good. I added an extra 1 oz square of chocolate and 2 tablespoons of almond extract and it came out heavenly. I think next time I'll add 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk to make it creamier.
This was wonderful-I served it to some friends who are chocolate lovers who declared it was the best pie they had ever eaten. I used a chocolate cookie crust and topped it with Cool Whip.
Delicious!! Very creamy and chocolatey. Family loved this pie. I had found another recipe that called for 8 oz. of chopped bittersweet chocolate...but hesitated as this recipe called for only 2 oz. of unsweetened. Glad I followed this recipe...the 2 oz. was the perfect amount of chocolate...could only imagine what it would be like with 8!! The custard thickened up with no problem...chilled in a baked pie shell and topped with whipped cream and shaved hershey kisses (all I had )..will make this again! Thanks for a fabulous pie Debbie!
Absolutely delicious pie!! I have made it many times and want to thank you for sharing the recipe. Tastes just like the old fashioned ones my Mom-in-Law made. Unfortunately, Mom never wrote much down, so I am stuck with lots of ingredient lists and not many instructions! Like anything else the quality of the ingredients determines the end results. I have made this pie with Ghiardelli Dark Bars, Valhrona and Lindt 83% Dark and Scharffenburger. Both individually and in varying amounts of each mixed. All with excellent results. They cost a bit more, but the results are worth it. I sometimes cut down on the sugar just a smidgen-1 tablespoon-- depending on what kind of chocolate I am using.
Best Chocolate Pie I've had! It has been a hit with friends and family. The best part is that it is really easy to make for those "inexperienced pie makers".
A wonderful pie recipe that all of my friends and family enjoyed very much! Use a graham cracker crust just to top off that delicious dessert flavor. Pile high with Reddi-Whip for a straight-from-the-bakery look. No one believed that I made this pie myself; they accused me of ordering it from a gourmet restaurant. It's THAT good!
