Cherry-Nut Chocolate Pie Recipe

Cherry-Nut Chocolate Pie Recipe

I love chocolate and cherries, but couldn't find the flavor combination in any ice cream. So I came up with this rich dessert that has a nice crunch from nuts. This pie is handy to keep in the freezer for unexpected company.—Diana Wilson Wing, Centerville, Utah
