I have made this recipe many times over the years. I originally got it from a Nestle chocolate chips ad. I have always made it just as written with the full one cup of butter and have NEVER had any issues with having to pour off butter as others have stated. They must be doing something wrong. I use a kitchenaid mixer to mix all of the ingredients except I stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. It ends up as a nice fluffy thick batter (I love to lick the bowl). I pour it into a frozen 9" pie crust. True, it is gooey when warm. You cannot cut it as soon as it is taken from the oven. It must cool and set. I do like to eat it slightly warm when it is still a little soft and gooey. Once it is completely cool, it is a solid pie. The chocolate chips sink to the bottom so it is like two layers inside the pie. When cool, I always warm my piece for about 10 seconds in the microwave oven to make it a little gooey. It is heavenly. I took one to a holiday gathering with friends as a last-minute addition to the desserts and everyone loved it--more than my other dessert! It is fast and so easy to make and comes out perfectly every time if you follow the directions. And using a frozen pie crust really makes it super easy. I will say, when I looked this recipe up today, the Nestle website now shows only 3/4 c. butter on the ingredient list. But, I have always made it with one cup butter and I would be afraid to change it since I think it is perfection made that way.
