Guests always go for this rich but simple pie. I like topping it with fresh raspberries or cherry pie filling. —Sandy Schwartz, Brooklyn, NY

"Loved this light and fluffy scrumptious chocolate cheesecake. Used a store bought oreo crust. So easy and everyone in the family absolutely loved it. I had to make it two days in a row!"

"I did not care for this pie. It was like eating bitter chocolate butter. No more Taste of Home dessert recipes for me."

"Question, why Butter? I have made several no-bake chocolate cheesecakes that do not call for butter.

Just wondering any thoughts on this?"

"Loved this! It was so good. I used a chocolate crumb pie crust instead of the graham cracker crust. Will definitely make it again."

"Pie was good. It was rich so I limited myself to small slices. It was easy to put together and I didn't have any issues with consistency of the filling."

"Way too sweet which is unusual for me, I love chocolate. Also found it difficult to spread in crust as it was so thick. Won't make again."

"Made this easy to make pie for Thanksgiving and we loved it. Even my hubby who doesn't like a heavy chocolae flavor liked this pie. The only suggestion I have is remove it from the refrigerator a few minutes before you want to serve it to let it soften."

"I prepared this pie 9/6/14. It was very simple to prepare and I liked the ease of the preparation for this dessert! The only thing I did do was use a 12-oz. package of Make and Mold Chocolate Truffle candy wafers and melted them in a double boiler with 3 Tbsp. milk and stirred until smooth.

I also prepared my own crust. I'll use either crushed chocolate cookies or vanilla wafers or crushed graham crackers OR Nutter Butter peanut butter sandwich cookies, 1/4 cup butter, melted and 1/4 cup sugar, mixed together, pressed into a 9" pie plate and placed in a turned off 400o F. oven for 15 minutes-this sets my crust! I kept the rest of the recipe as is!
I plan to share it at the hospital where I volunteer! I did keep the pie as it is without any topping on it! Thank you, Sandy Schwartz, for sharing your recipe! I got it from the new Taste of Home Easy Weeknight dinner
recipe book I'd purchased! delowenstein"
