"Takes longer than recipe stated to firm up. The chocolate overwhelmed the rest of the flavors."

"This is one of my favorite pudding pie recipes. I have made it many times following the recipe exactly and have had no trouble whatsoever getting it to set up. It cut beautifully. The flavors really blend well. I especially like to make this on a hot day when I don't want to turn on the oven."

"To make the pie stiffer, use less milk. Mine was too mushy."

"Earlier I posted a comment about the pie slices falling apart. At that time it had set up for over an hour. About 6 hours later I went to cut a piece of the pie and found it had set up very nicely. Just takes awhile to set up. The pie is easy to make and tastes great."

"I made this pie to share with another diabetic friend. tasted good but appearance was poor. When i tried to serve it each piece fell apart. I think it would be better in parfait glasses ."

"The flavors were great. The only problem I had was that it did not set up real well. I'm thinking of freezing it for a bit before it's cut because it seems to run a bit when it's cut."
