Lives up to it's name... this is a thick, rich, chocolate "fudgy" pie. Absolutely delicious! only variations I made was using half & half in place of reg. milk (makes for a smoother, richer pie)... & also combined the flour & cornstarch together in a cup, added just enough water to make a thin paste, then added this to the liquid mixture of milk/eggs. This eliminated any lumps. I used the Basic Flaky Pie Crust recipe off of this site & it balanced out the sweetness of the filling really well. I chose not to use a topping, but may try one in the future. I think whipped cream would be my preference, as this is a cold pie & just seems to "fit" better. Be forewarned: this is a thick, rich pie... but in my opinion, with the homemade pie crust, it wasn't too sweet... and oh, so good when you're craving something chocolatey! This is definitely a keeper!
Edited to add: this is my "go to" recipe now for chocolate pie! I've made it dozens of times & have found that we like it best with a regular egg white meringue topping.
