"The pie was good, a little too sweet for my taste. I plan to make it again, but will add less sugar and corn syrup and ramp up the coffee flavor."

"This is a crowd favorite during the holidays-everyone loves the dark chocolate flavor with just a little hint of heat! The pie comes together quickly, but its looks and taste fool everyone into thinking you worked all morning in the kitchen. : )"
