Chocolate Shoofly Pie

Rated as 3.88 out of 5 Stars

"A heavenly delicious Shoofly Pie with a gooey bittersweet chocolate bottom to it. I must give credit to a person I've never met, Ms. Ivy Smink, for her recipe for Shoofly Pie. I've had many a Shoofly Pie before. This is the most authentic in flavor that I've ever tasted. God Bless her for sharing it with us. Serve this pie with homemade vanilla bean ice cream and a hot cup of coffee or tea, snuggled up by the fireplace with someone you love. It's like going to heaven, yet it's a devilish good time."

I never had a shoofly pie before. Actually I never even heard about it. The recipe sounded so strange to me, I never thought it will turn out to be something eatable. But I love experimenting ...

I have not tried this recipe yet because I'm confused by the directions. In the intro it says the chips go on the bottom followed by the molasses filling and covered with another layer of chips ...
