Delicious recipe! You can also top it with a variety of nuts! I've made it with walnuts, pecans, slivered almonds--it's great every time. My friends LOVED it. It's not a difficult recipe, but just be careful to melt everything together on LOW heat or your chocolate might burn, and stir constantly or it might separate (but it seems to be impossible to ruin)! Have all your ingredients nearby and measured before you begin. Also, 1/4 cup *strong* coffee will work if you don't have instant. My boyfriend said this was the best pie he'd ever tasted, and his roommates raved too. Read More

Excellent. Try this! Wonderful texture - delicious flavor. I made the recipe exactly as written. I understand why a reviewer would say it was better the next day because then the flavors would have a chance to meld, however this pie won't make it that long in this house. I recommend using the "Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust" on this website - that is also excellent. I am trying new recipes all the time, (which is why my husband has two gym memberships and goes twice a day) and this is one of the best recipes I've found in quite some time. Thank you for sharing!

You know you have a winner when you hear "I HAVE to have this recipe!" I didn't have the chocolate squares so substituted 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Because we love coffee used 3 tablespoons of coffee instead of one. Quick and easy recipe with great results! Everyone who eats it raves about it! Thanks! Read More

Yesterday when this pie was warm on my table I would have rated it three stars. It was a bit too bitter; the texture was off somehow. Today after it sat overnight in the fridge I had a hankering for chocolate and thought heck let's eat this mocha pie already. Five-stars today! When served chilled the texture changes considerably into a mousse-like consistency that melts in your mouth. The nuts add just enough pleasant crunch and the coffee flavor is much more subtle. A perfect blend. I made the following changes to the recipe: I substituted 3 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder for the 1 oz of unsweetened chocolate. Instead of a pastry crust I layered the bottom of a cake pan with graham cracker crust to a depth of 1/2" and poured the pie batter on top of that. This made the pie come out easily as a torte and made a nice display for the table. Definitely something I'd make again--if I let it sit overnight before serving. Read More

Absolutely delicious - I couldn't stop eating it! Wouldn't change a thing except to experiment with new crusts as my crust came out way too soft. Read More

Sooo tasty! I used a frozen pie shell as we had one and I used 1/4 cup Hershey's Dark chocolate chips instead of 2 oz unsweetened chocolate. Oh and I used 1/4 cup strong coffee instead of instant and water. I put the walnut halves on top in a pretty pattern and my husband was sure it was pecan pie... Poor him! He doesn't care for coffee or chocolate but still thought it was okay! Thanks for sharing Shotzy! Read More

Excellent. I used 2 x 1 ounce suqares of 70% cocoa bittersweet and 2 tbsps of Hershey's Special Dark chips...I want this really rich. And it was! Easy too. My six yesr old daughter did all of the mixing in the saucepan while I added the ingredients. Center was set for me at 42 minutes. Sprinkled with almonds as that's what I had. Dinner guests like this very much...the texture was sort of a cross between a brownie and a thich mousse. I'm mostly a cake person myself but this certainly gave me my chocolate fix.;-) Read More
