"Because this pie is so simple to make, it's one that i make often. Very rich and chocolately! Tastes so much better than store bought boxed puddings."

"While the flavor of the pie was good, the filling never did set up right. I have another chocolate pie recipe that I don't have to tinker with so I will not be making this one again."
