      WOW! This is a super smooth pie. I left out the booze and used a chocolate graham crust. It was really good. My hubby is a chocoholic and he loved it! Thanks I will be making this again.

      I wish I liked this pie more than I did. It was made to be a birthday pie for my youngest daughter, who loves Bakers Square French Silk pie. I guess we hoped for something along those lines, but this recipe is not. It makes a bitter-sweet chocolate filling -- as opposed to a sweet-chocolate French Silk. *I should note that the family members who like dark chocolate thought it tasted very good.* My other objection is the volume that the recipe makes. As you can see in the photo that I posted (the one with the butterfly crust that my daughter painstakingly cut out with tiny double cookie cutters), it only filled the 10 inch, pre-baked pie shell half-way. Considering the concaved edges of a pie plate, that is not a lot of filling. If you mound the whipped cream above the crust line at all, it is going to be a one-third chocolate, two-thirds whipped cream pie -- not my ideal ratio. In the end, if you like shallow dark chocolate pies: you will probably like this one. If you want Bakers Square style: you will have to find your car keys.

      This pie had good flavor, but was way to rich for my family. It was more like eating fudge. But like I said, it did have good flavor.
