YUMMY!!!! Very rich and very easy!!! I wasn't expecting the top to become crunchy and cookie-like...I touched the top to check for 'doneness' expecting to have a springy texture and totally cracked/poked a gigantic hole in the top!!! Oh darn-can't bring it to work's Oktoberfest...not with a cracked top...guess I'll just have to eat it all myself!!! One thing...I used a 9" premaid crust and it 'goobered' all over the sides, thankfully I had put a cookie sheet underneath! Next time I will use the deep-dish variety pie crust!!
Yummy, rich, and chocolatey. Easy, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This was sooo easy to make, definitely foolproof!!! :) Kevin who is the real chocolate lover in this house raved over it! He had his with vanilla icecream! It won't last long here! LOL The top is a thin crunchy cookie and it is very rich inside so the icecream or whipped cream is a nice touch. Made this for the Undercover Pie Photo Event! Thank you for a keeper!!! Loved it! Kids would really love this one! For sure! Always, Jelly :)
