Sky-high and scrumptious, this fluffy chocolate delight is super to serve to company. You can put the pie together in a wink - and it'll disappear just as fast! For a nice option, mound the filling in a purchased chocolate crumb crust. -Lois Mulkey, Sublimity, Oregon

"Excellent! Have made this many times since finding the recipe a few years ago. Thank you for sharing!"

"This was so easy! I used 3 Hershey bars and enough Nestle chips to make the 7oz, swapped the whipping cream for heavy cream. Cut the marshmallows into smaller pieces and the process goes very quickly. Great dessert and a new family favorite!"

"This pie is excellent. It tastes divine. It is easy to prepare and what takes the longest is waiting for the chocolate mixture to cool. This pie is a winner!"

"I made this recipe to make mini mousse cups for my daughter's World Thinking Day Event for Girl Scouts. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and mini-marshmallows with half-n-half instead of milk. We whipped our own whipped cream from heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and sugar. The first four batches seemed to be going fine, but seemed a bit runny. They are in my refrigerator now and I am a bit worried about them. But the last batch came out much lighter and fluffier that the rest. I discovered the secret by accident. The chocolate and marshmallow mixture needs time to get really cold before being folded into the whipped cream. I had taken a break and let the last batch of chocolate sit in the freezer for almost an hour, rather than the 15-20 minutes of the first four batches. Really yummy either way!"

"Twice I made this and it does not set up! I make a similar recipe with no problem. I think it is the milk."
