"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!"

"Question, why Butter? I have made several no-bake chocolate cheesecakes that do not call for butter.

Just wondering any thoughts on this?"

"Way too sweet which is unusual for me, I love chocolate. Also found it difficult to spread in crust as it was so thick. Won't make again."

"Made this easy to make pie for Thanksgiving and we loved it. Even my hubby who doesn't like a heavy chocolae flavor liked this pie. The only suggestion I have is remove it from the refrigerator a few minutes before you want to serve it to let it soften."

"I prepared this pie 9/6/14. It was very simple to prepare and I liked the ease of the preparation for this dessert! The only thing I did do was use a 12-oz. package of Make and Mold chocolate Truffle candy wafers and melted them in a double boiler with 3 Tbsp. milk and stirred until smooth.

I also prepared my own crust. I'll use either crushed chocolate cookies or vanilla wafers or crushed graham crackers OR Nutter Butter peanut butter sandwich cookies, 1/4 cup butter, melted and 1/4 cup sugar, mixed together, pressed into a 9" pie plate and placed in a turned off 400o F. oven for 15 minutes-this sets my crust! I kept the rest of the recipe as is!
I plan to share it at the hospital where I volunteer! I did keep the pie as it is without any topping on it! Thank you, Sandy Schwartz, for sharing your recipe! I got it from the new Taste of Home easy Weeknight dinner
recipe book I'd purchased! delowenstein"

"This is a good, easy recipe. I still prefer a baked chocolate cheesecake to an unbaked recipe like this one, but it's still really tasty, especially for how easy it is. I like to top the pie with chopped nuts or coconut after spooning it into the crust. It's also nice to drizzle chocolate or caramel or strawberry syrup on top of each slice just prior to serving."
