"The chocolate pudding was delightful. It was creamy and oh so good. I cut the amount of margarine in half and didn't feel like I was missing anything. Put it on your must try list."

"This is the best chocolate pie I've ever had!! Family could tell right away that it was homemade and not instant pudding mix. I actually just use a graham cracker crust for it, and it could really make two pies! Sometimes, I'll use the extra stuff to make little cup desserts, layering the pudding and whipped cream. Yummy!!!!"

"Dx'd with Type-2 diabetes and went on low carb diet. I could not believe this pie, being my all-time favorite, was not going to grace our table again. Put the wheels to work and subbed a non-sugar sweetener for the sugar in this recipe and then made a crust from almond flour, a bit more sweetener and butter. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am with the results! Any reservations you have about this pie can be eliminated. The recipe as written is the most requested pie I make. Now I just make it so I can enjoy it again!"

"I was skeptical of adding the water but went ahead and followed the recipe as written. I did not use a deep dish pie shell and had some filling left over. I enjoyed every bite of that. My only suggestion is if you do make this positively lovely chocolate cream pie, please use a deep dish pie shell! Otherwise, you might have to do like I did and eat the extra. My pie is cooling as we speak and I am delighted with the results. Very happy to serve this for tonight's dessert!!"
