I've been making this recipe for years and it has always been a guest favorite. I have even had people show up at my door because they've heard I made it. I add a bit of salt to the recipe and make sure I've mixed it on high for at least 5 minutes. It taste better the longer it's mixed. As another reviewer said it's even better as a left over.

I was excited to try this pie because of all the great reviews but it turned out a strange mixture of chocolate and egg taste. I didn't give it the lowest rating because I had never had any type of Chess Pie so maybe that's how it's suppose to taste. Read More

Needed to come up with a special dessert for company last night had all the ingredients on hand so gave it a try. Served it with a dollop of whipped cream and everyone loved it! DID take a little longer to bake ("set") than stated and had to cover the pie crust edges with foil to prevent over browning. Next time I will be prepared to expect that. Definitely an EASY to make WINNER!!! Read More

I had to take a star off because it didn't mix up just right for me. The finished product was all right but I don't like recipes where an electric mixer is an absolute must. Maybe it was my fault but this recipe wasn't the best anyway. Read More

This was my first pie ever! It was so easy and my husband raved! One thing that someone else mentioned...cover the pie edges with foil because it will burn to a crisp! I caught it half way through and saved the pie but make sure that you foil the crust! Read More

Well I made this for my sweetie for Valentine's Day. Not a winner. Sorry but this was too sweet and not very chocolaty even though I used the special dark cocoa. DH said it tasted too eggy as well. On another note in trying to decide which recipe to make chocolate chess pie I or chocolate chess pie II they are pretty much the same recipe excepting that II uses melted butter and I uses softened butter. I did as previous reviewers suggested and mixed the filling for 5 minutes but what's wrong with this recipe can't be fixed by mixing longer... Read More
