Smooth Chocolate Pie

My mom and I made this chocolate pie, just the two of us, and our whole family got to enjoy it. We think you will, too. —Steve Riemersma, Allegan, Michigan

    Delicious! And easy to make. I used chocolate graham crackers for the crust. It was even better the next day.

    Oh my goodness--I get shivers just looking at pictures of chocolate pie. You can imagine my excitement on seeing this chocolate pie in the recent TOH mag. It's delicious and easy to make, but I gave it 4/5 stars because I think my mom's Candy Bar Pie is slightly better. Both recipes call for frozen whipped topping--I don't particularly like using "pseudo foods." Poor me, I guess I'll have to try both recipes with real whipped cream to see if it works!

    I gave this a 4 star rating because it was easy to make. I like it refrigerated and so did not freeze it.
