Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Karen, this pie is sinfully delicious. I made this for my BIL's surprise B-day dinner. He is a serious chocolate-lover. This pie is so creamy, with an a**-kicking chocolate flavor. I piped the topping and it looked so beautiful. BIL gave me a big ol' smooch. Thanks girl, you made our night.

This was the shining star of our Zaar Week Cookathon/4th of July celebration. You aren't kidding. The ultimate chocolate lover's dream. So rich and cool and just plain delicious. Thanks for helping to make our holiday special.

I used silken tofu in place of the sour cream with excellent results. Why not make it better for you when you can right? So delicious with a dollop of whip cream. Everyone was raving how much they loved this pie Karen! I am going to make it for Christmas, as it was so well received this time around!
