"I made this special dessert for my husband on Valentine's Day, and he really enjoyed it," relates Suzanne Zick of Iron Station, North Carolina. "It's pretty simple and tastes wonderful!"
In the Taste of Home Test Kitchen, the word was "Yum!" when we tried this refrigerator torte. Tucked inside the chocolate crumb crust is a fluffy chocolate filling with a layer of fresh berries.
This pie is my specialty. It's fairly simple to make but so dramatic to serve. The ultimate taste of spring, this luscious pie has such a big, fresh berry taste I've had many request to bring it to gatherings.
—Janet Mooberry, Peoria, Illinois
Impressive as it looks, this dessert is really easy to prepare. I make it often when strawberries are at their peak. My husband thinks it's terrific, and I receive compliments when I serve the pie to guests.

Relates Becky Duncan of Leming, Texas, "I stock up on locally grown berries for treats like this pie, which pairs them with pecans." She's received a ribbon from the Strawberry Festival food show at nearby Poteet.
This recipe is a cool and creamy dessert that gets a head start with a purchased graham cracker crust. I often substitute other berries and you can also use different pudding flavors.—Suzanne McKinley, Lyons, Georgia
