"This is a very simple recipe to throw together. It set wonderfully and had a VERY silky texture."

"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."

"I really like this pie. I currently can't have dairy products and this one works great for me. I whip cream for the rest of the family and eat it plain myself. One change I do make is I add 1/2 cup very dark chocolate or chocolate chips to the filling in the last minute of cooking. It tastes excellent."

"While the flavor was pretty good, I think it was lacking something to give it richness. My pie was on the loose side, not at all like the picture. I'm guessing the flour and cooking time might need to be adjusted. I liked it enough that I would try it again sometime."

"THis recipe is very quick and simple. The only problem I have is it never seems to set up very firm. IT is sligtly jiggly and soft no matter how long I fridge it. I will have to try boiling it longer or something!"
