With three active children, I don't usually fuss with fancy desserts. This one is simple but impressive--it's the one I make to show how much I care. The tempting combination of chocolate and tangy red cherries is guaranteed to make someone feel special.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2013

Very quick & easy, this is my holiday tradition which I make every Christmas, my family's favorite.

MY REVIEW

This was overall a descent pie. The regular pie crust actually didn't go well with rest, though. I will probably play with the crust and see if I can come up with something that fits together with the rest of the ingredients better. Aside from that, the filling was pretty good, and I absolutely love cherries.

Very delicious pie and quite easy to prepare. It will definitely be made again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2010

This pie was excellent and above what I expected. The pie filling tastes like homemade chocolate pudding and is scrumptious when topped with real whipped cream, it is my favorite pie! I highly reccomend it and have shared it with my friends. The pie is easy to make, fast to make, and delicious.

It was moist and delicious and not too sweet. And whipped cream should never be optional for this!
