"can you use a prepared chocolate crust and make the ingredients on the stovetop then pour into crust? anyone?"

"Getting the white chocolate just right is the trickiest part...melting it to the correct temperature without it setting again. But if you can get that down, this recipe is simply amazing! It's a huge hit whenever I make it and a great addition to our holiday cookbook"
