Chocolate Cheesecake Pie

Guests always go for this rich but simple pie. I like topping it with fresh raspberries or cherry pie filling. —Sandy Schwartz, Brooklyn, NY

      I made my own spin on this recipe, which btw without your wonderful recipe to go by I, like many others, wouldn't have known where to start! So thank you for posting it! I used chocolate Graham for the crust, and folded in my own made whipped cream

      Made this pie for New Year's Eve and it scored big points with my husband and brother in law! The whole pie was gone in no time. I liked how fast it was to prepare. Thank you for the recipe!

      You know what would be really nice? Instead of 1.5?cups of milk chocolate chips, why is the weight not used? Is that not the most simple way? I personally think that more and more recipes should be using weight for measure. This pie looks awesome and I will probably try it, but I will get 1.5 cups of chips and then add my own notes after I weight them. BTW, love your site, I use it all the time.

      Loved this light and fluffy scrumptious chocolate cheesecake. Used a store bought oreo crust. So easy and everyone in the family absolutely loved it. I had to make it two days in a row!

      I did not care for this pie. It was like eating bitter chocolate butter. No more Taste of Home dessert recipes for me.

      Question, why Butter? I have made several no-bake chocolate cheesecakes that do not call for butter.Just wondering any thoughts on this?

      Loved this! It was so good. I used a chocolate crumb pie crust instead of the graham cracker crust. Will definitely make it again.
