Reviews for Chocolate Raspberry Pie
"What a HIT this pie was for my picky family!! They LOVE it. So now when I make it I make 2"
"The chocolate layer on top is hard, so by the time we cut through it, to eat it, with our forks, we both flattened the cream and made a mess of the pie. A hot knife is excellent for cutting and serving, but you still have to eat it without ruining it. Chocolate on the bottom is the only answer. The raspberry layer made us both cringe it was so tart. Two extra tablespoons of sugar might be enough to fix that. The cream layer was delicious. For me, this recipe is only a beginning. It has definite problems to overcome."
"Lovely and delicious! Made for an office party and everyone raved about it! The pie cutter under hot water is a great tip as a regular knife breaks and ruins the look of the chocolate on the slices."
"My daughter made this and it has become the family favorite."
