This pie is demanded from my family for every holiday. I found the recipe online back in the late 90's. To many disappointed family members' dismay, I temporarily lost my handwritten copy after moving, I couldn't find online, and I wasn't able to make it for one holiday. I'm adding it here so I will always have it. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.

I made half this recipe just for my husband and I. This is such an easy recipe, with great chocolate flavor. If you make this, it won't last long. Read More
