As written, the pie is too rich for my tastes. I have a very similar recipe which uses 2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate for 1/2 recipe. Directions are the same except after beating in the eggs, fold in 8 oz light whipped topping. So it is 1 stick butter, 3/4 c sugar, 2 melted sq. unsweetened chocolate, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, and 8 oz light cool whip or other brand topping. This makes my family's all time favorite pie.... the topping lightens it enough that it is not too rich. This was the first time I tried a recipe with no topping, and using cocoa, and I will go back to my tried and true version. Sorry. Flavor is delicious, but we could only eat a few bites.
