Smooth and creamy, this velvety pie will be a festive change of pace on the dessert table. A hint of orange in the cranberry topping adds extra pizzazz that’s too delish to resist. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2012

Pretty easy to do, and the white chocolate layer was light and delicious. The dark chocolate started to cool off fast, so you have to be ready to spread it pretty quickly. And definitely buy the bigger graham cracker crust. If you don't you'll have way too much filling for the crust.
