This dense chocolate treat is a chocoholics dream!

This was very simple to make. The first time I had it, it tasted more like brownies. Made some modifications and the 2nd time around was EXCELLENT: used 7 oz of semi-sweet choco + 7 oz of milk chocolate chips; used 3/4 cup of whipping cream; used 1/4 cup of light brown sugar. Also only baked for 25 min at 325°F and it baked more like a truffle than a brownie.Read More
It was good, but not something I would make 'as-is' again. It was not terribly sweet, so if you want something that isn't too sweet, this would be for you. Very chocolatey. I would try at least half the squares as sweetened chocolate next time. With that tweek, I'd make it again!Read More

This is AMAZING! I was nervous about trying this recipe after reading the other reviews, but I'm so glad I tried it! The quality of the pie I think really depends on the quality of chocolate you use. I used Ghirardelli 60% bittersweet chocolate, but I recommend Lindt or Hershey's as well. An excellent recipe.
This pie was easier to make than I was expecting it to be. Great texture, very rich. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the squares. I don't get it that people say it isn't sweet enough...you're using SEMI-sweet chocolate.
very good. added crumbled chocolate cookie pie crust. does not need the full cooking time, just w few minutes less to make it more moist.
CHOCOHOLICS REJOICE this is REALLY GOOD i only changed the semi-chocolate chips to milk my family raved

One review used an oreo crust so I did that too. I also used chocolate chips instead of squares, and baked for 30 mins. Rich and yummy. Will definitely be making this again.
I have made this a few times and we love it. You don't need a large piece, a little goes along way. Topped with real whipped cream lightly sweetened. Can't ask for an easier dessert.
Not sure what happened, but my first attempt made something with more of a brownie-like texture instead of a pie texture. Plus, the chocolate did not come thru as well as I had hoped.
i used an oreo cookie crust but otherwise did nothing different. you don't really need the whip cream. i am a huge chocolate fan and this has got to be the very best chocolate pie i've ever had.
It Just doesn't seem to have enough sweetness to it...
Tried this one for Christmas. Very rich! Almost too rich. Guinea pig Hubby says "too much cocoa." I ended up cutting the pie up into small squares like brownies, sprinkled powdered sugar on top, and took it to a party. Most of it got eaten. Probably won't make again.
This is a VERY rich dessert, so break out the glasses of milk. I followed the advice of a previous reviewer and the pie did turn our more truffle like than brownie like. You don't need the full 35 minutes. Mine was done in 25. This is a more bitter dessert, so next time I'll either add a mix of milk chocolate and semi sweet or add a raspberry topping or both.
This tasted EXACTLY like a chocolate chip with the texture of a brownie. If you like dark chocolate, you'll probably love this, but I'm a milk chocolate fan and it was too much for me, even with whipped cream or ice cream. I'll probably end up giving it away.
Made for husband's birthday cake. Very easy recipe. We prefer less sweet taste and this had a dense, fudge texture like that of a rich, flourless cake. Using ingredients I had in house, I halved everything except the sweetener, using 4 oz. of unsweetened Baker's chocolate and 1/2 c pure maple syrup. Put the bowl and beaters in the freezer and add 2 TBS vanilla to 1 pt real heavy whipping cream. Bake in 5 x 9 loaf pan. Serve on fancy elongated serving plate.
I wanted so, so badly to like this. I followed a few suggestions from other reviewers, namely using an Oreo pie crust and using a combination of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the semi-sweet bakers chocolate. Even with the milk chocolate chips, it just was not sweet enough and had a very "heavy" texture. I probably will not make this one again.
Perfect sweetness for us. I used semi-sweet (60%) chocolate chips, and I used half-and-half instead of the cream.
This is perfect for a dark chocolate lover like me. I love chocolate, but can easily pass on milk chocolate so this hit the spot for me. It is quick, easy & delicious. If you're looking for milk chocolate or sweet keep on looking. But if you savor the flavor of chocolate, dark chocolate, this a keeper.
So chocolates and delicious.
Just didn't care for this semi-sweet pie. The chocolate was too strong. We like a chocolate pie without the bite. Otherwise, if you like that bold chocolate flavor, you will like this one.
