This pie is really good and chocolate-y. It definitely needs a whipped cream topping,to balance out the chocolate. Tasted yummy!

This is good, however, I almost always double my pie filling recipes as we like them deeper. This one I double. I also use

at least 2C of whipping cream and 4c of milk if I am doubling. Great! Doesn't get a film on top.

Very yummy!! Tastes like chocolate pudding in a pie crust- but better. I have made a chocolate pie before but this one definitely turned out tastier. It looked exactly like the picture. I made a homemade pie crust to go with it, not that hard to do. I did not have cornstarch on hand so I used 1/2 cup all-purpose flour in place of 1/4 cornstarch and it turned out perfectly. I made this pie last night and it is half gone after lunch!
