    I found this recipe in a newspaper when I lived in Honolulu HI in 1975. I had a house fire in January 2019 and thought this recipe was lost to me forever. I am so very happy to have found it again. This is my favorite pie.

    I've been making this pie for several years and it is always a hit. My daughter, who normally does not like pie, requests this one every holiday. It's sweet, but not overly so.

    This pie is great and easy - the perfect combination! It IS mighty rich, but my children love it! I add slightly sweetened whipped cream.

    I made this pie two years ago and my family loved the chocolaty taste. I did add 1/4 cup baking cocoa and flour, (I do not like rich Pies) this was not to rich at all. I still give it 5 stars.

    Although 2 of my kids like this, the only reason I won't make this again is because I would rather make a pecan pie that is more traditional. It was good, but a little too chocolaty for me. It really stuck on the fork.
